About The Book

Curiosity is the fundamental basis for the process of learning about It helps children to explore, question and often wonder world they live in his book puts together many such questions the and only posted to Prot Yash Pal, like 'Why is the sky bluer? 'Why does an air conditioner "leak" water? ''Do baby chicks breathe inside the eggshell before they are born?"; 'Will life on Mars be possible in next 10 years.'; 'Why was Einstein so intelligent?' and even 'Can a human being become invisible?' Whatever the question, Prof. Yash Palls answers are marked by basis their simplicity, honesty and a gradual unravelling of the scientific behind each. Covering a wide array of subjects, this book with over (1011 questions arranged randomly, makes an interesting read for all.

Preface

Children are natural scientists, emerging, evolving, immersed as they are in a new world full of wonder. As they grow, they seek to make sense of their surroundings - a quest for explanation, a thirst for understanding. Questions abound, questions that expand the limits of their knowledge, questions that agitate and excite their eager, enquiring, malleable minds. Understanding can truly be joyous and mind-altering. And as a wise person once said, a mind stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions. As humans, there is so much CO learn and to understand; to not do so every single day would be such a terrible waste. Now, more than ever, we can benefit from the learning of those around us in unique and wonderful ways - without the constraints of time and space. Nobody has all the answers, a message I hope many of the responses in this book convey. An honest acceptance of a lack of knowledge is frequently a critical first step to learning. As we understand more and more of the happenings around us, the connections between seemingly unrelated things and events become clearer, and we learn how to untangle phenomena which seem at first perplexing. This is the third such book I have helped my father put together; a particularly poignant moment for me, having lost him recently. Whenever I am confounded by an occurrence without explanation or apparent reason (as happens with astonishing regularity), I can still feel his presence, his application of mind, his urge to de-mystify. In my mind, there can be no bigger tribute.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)
Hithesh, USA
I have received the book Evolution II.  Thank you so much for all of your assistance in making this book available to me.  You have been so helpful and kind.
Colleen, USA
Thanks Exotic India, I just received a set of two volume books: Brahmasutra Catuhsutri Sankara Bhasyam
I Gede Tunas
You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.
Lulian, UK
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
