Bimal G’s book ‘Solving the 111-Year-Old Riddle’ opens an
unexplored window of physics for the readers. Through this book, the author has
aimed to solve the riddles generated by the theories of relativity and quantum
mechanics. He believes that something is oddly wrong with the explanations and interpretations
of these most celebrated theories even though the equations and its predictions
are perfect and powerful.
Puzzling paradoxes and logic-defying ideas had confounded
the realm of physics ever since the formulation of special theory of relativity
in 1905. By flouting reality, the theory of quantum mechanics too challenged
common sense. Both these theories failed to give rational explanations to various
This book is a bold attempt to demystify the theories of
relativity and quantum mechanics, which seem besotted with mathematical
formalism than logical reasoning. It seeks to unite the two strong pillars of
physics, fix the inconsistencies between them, and fill in the missing link by
giving a new avatar to absolute space and time.
In the process, the author puts forth a revolutionary new
theory that removes paradoxes in the realm of physics, redefines the puzzling
inertia and explains the riddling dark matter & dark energy along with
other natural phenomena and scientific experiments.
Bimal G is a civil engineer with a strong passion for physics. Even though physics is not his profession or area of expertise, he dares to demystify the two established theories in physics—the theories of relativity and quantum mechanics. He exhibits strong analytical skills as well as sound common sense in tackling the puzzling problems of physics. The mystery surrounding the theories of relativity and quantum mechanics does not frighten him, and the strong experimental and observational proofs supporting these theories are not enough to erode his confidence. The author proceeds with the demystification process in a systematic and disciplined manner.
Bimal graduated in civil engineering from the Government College of Engineering, Thiruvananthapuram in 1996. He lives in Thiruvananthapuram with his son, wife, mother and father.
