It’s the new year and farmers of India are on the road for 76 days now. Their demand? They don’t want the new farm laws which will potentially destroy their and the country’s future.

“Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan” — it’s a very popular phrase in India, meaning, “Hail the soldier, Hail the farmer”. But sadly, in recent times, the farmers of India are suffering like never before. The Accidental Deaths and Suicides in India report 2019 by the National Crime Records Bureau suggests that at least 10,281 persons involved in the farm sector committed suicide in 2019. The number was 10,348 back in 2018. Farmer suicides accounted for 7.4 per cent of the total suicides of India in 2019. Every day, almost 28 farmers commit suicide in India. Debt, environment, low produce prices, poor…

Years after World War II, when the dust settled, the US and Russia (the Soviet Union at that time) started increasing their power of causing a nuclear holocaust. They both started to develop new missiles and nuclear weapons with the best technology they had, hoping they’ll get to do the BOOM BOOM on the moon next time. They both were developing more power to launch and defend against intercontinental ballistic missiles.

For the Soviet Union, the best way to shoot some cone-headed cylinders of mass destruction on the US was over the north pole. It was the most vulnerable point…

The equation connects neuron firing, fluid convection, the Mandelbrot set and so much more and will definitely change your view of this world.

What if I say that the Mandelbrot set, a population of squirrels, a dripping faucet, the firing of neurons in our brain and the thermal convection is connected by one simple equation? Maybe you’ll laugh at me. But math is stranger than fiction.

Let’s dive deep into this.

Suppose you want to model a population of squirrels. This year, we have X number of squirrels. So, what might be the population next year? A simple model can be, just multiply the current population with a number. Let it be r. so, the growth rate is r. …

The picture above is one of the most fascinating things I’ve ever seen. But it’s also one of the most frustrating things I’ve seen that left me confused as hell. I love mathematics and these dots on a graph have haunted mathematicians for more than one and a half-century. So, what is this graph?

It’s the graphical representation of the Riemann hypothesis. It’s one of the most interesting unsolved equation and probably one of the most important unsolved mysteries of mathematics. It’s a very popular problem of science because it’s one of the problems listed in the Millennium Problems of…

It wasn’t long after we got the thrilling news of the COVID-19 vaccine being rolled out finally, we got hit by the news of a new strain of Coronavirus in the UK.

On 14th December 2020, a new strain of Coronavirus was found in the United Kingdom (UK), which appears to be more contagious than the existing COVID-19 virus. SARS-CoV-2 variant is allegedly 70% more contagious. In the past week, COVID-19 case rates nearly doubled in the UK and 60% of the new infections attributed to the new variant of SARS-CoV-2.

The new strain of the virus is named VUI-202012/01. The question is, from where did this new strain come from? The answer is mutation.

What is mutation?

Mutation might sound like a very rare thing that might happen to a species very rarely, but…
