About the Book

The author seeks to bring clarity and straighten records to eliminate common, persistently prevailing misconceptions relating to certain topics in linguistics, religion, music, science and history. Excursions into these various topics bring some fascinating insights which have generally remained overlooked.

How is English related to Sanskrit? Who were the Aryans? What is the essence of music, of religion? Who was Jesus Christ? What was the message of Prophet Mohammed? What fate befell the Princes in the Tower? Whose was responsible for the Second World War? What are the implications of the Big Bang Theory? Is the search for the Equation of Everything realizable? What is the ultimate reality and how can Man view the Universe?

These are subjects regarding which, the author feels, some clarifications are required and some common misapprehensions need to be removed.
