As I went through the beautiful verses of this epic poem, what immediately struck me was its 44th verse. I could see an interesting analogy between the 44th verse, and the 2018 Nobel prize in physics. So I decide to use this analogy in closing of my talk. The whole talk had 25 slide. Below I show the 3 slides from my talk : the first one being the opening slide and last two are my closing slides that contain the analogy I mentioned about….
