Statement of purpose I wrote while applying for MSc in Neuroscince in the University of Oxdord

Ever since the beginning of college, I have been highly intrigued by the complexity of the nervous system; how simple cellular components organize themselves to create the highly complex organization. Although, any life form is capable of processing information using energy, the nervous system is the most efficient biological entity that exhibits the highest efficacy of information processing. All of the capabilities of the nervous system (e.g. taking conscious decisions) are the consequence of its complexity.

I also want to learn about the genetics and molecular biology behind those events.

Natural Selection: Nature’s rule in Mathematics

While talking about natural selection, the person who inevitably comes into the scene is none but the most renowned, and simultaneously criticized British Naturalist of eighteenth century, Charles Darwin. Most of us know him for his connection with evolution. In reality, the birth of the concept of evolution took place far earlier. However he added a very exquisite insight to explain evolution that is Natural Selection. The diversity of organisms on earth follows the rule of natural selection and is determined by interactions of living organisms among themselves and with non-living world.

Casablanca - A Song of Love and Longing

The first time I listened to this song I liked it. The lyrics are written in easy language. The words are not difficult to understand. Yet, it expresses a deep passionate aspect of love. A love that contains harmony, where waiting is as good as listening to ballad or a love song.

During his last days Albert Einstein devoted himself more to the thinking of social welfare than to the theories of science.
