I deeply respect literature and expect to gain insight from a book and to identify emotionally with its characters. I therefore avoid reading suspense novels or science fiction.
The literary trappings and moralizing of science fiction I find insufficiently compelling.
I first read science fiction in the old British Chum annual when I was about 12 years old.
The science of booby-trapping has taken a good deal of the fun out of following hot on the enemy's heels.
Science is a beautiful gift to humanity; we should not distort it.
English is necessary as at present original works of science are in English. I believe that in two decades times original works of science will start coming out in our languages. Then we can move over like the Japanese.
Science is global. Einstein's equation, E=mc2, has to reach everywhere. Science is a beautiful gift to humanity, we should not distort it. Science does not differentiate between multiple races.
Science has revealed that the human body is made up of millions and millions of atoms... For example, I am made up of 5.8x10 27 atoms.
There is not enough funding for basic sciences in India. We have to invest in a big way, and I am pushing that idea.
A good film demands its own score, and if you are a musician, your conscience will never allow you to do something mediocre for a good film.
