I have been sharing my love for math, science, quantum physics, metaphysics and more with Adi for as long as I know.
Even before he knew what a wave or particle meant he had possible heard about wave-particle duality. Even before he could pronounce Heisenberg he had possibly heard about Uncertainty Principle. There are many concepts that I don’t understand. But, that hasn’t stopped me from teaching him the concept in some mutated form with the hope that he will one day return to visit me after roving this planet and having a lot better clarity on the (un)-reality of this Universe than I ever will.
Now, there is some background to how I built that hope.
Appa and my dear friend Shashi Sastry told me to teach him everything at an early age without questioning whether he is absorbing it or not.
Since, Appa and Shashi are very wise people I blindly trusted them. I poured forth the knowledge that I have had the fortune of having access to.
Given the digital era we live in, I also encouraged Adi to seek answers through science articles and videos.
A few years ago, as we were discussing the total unreality of reality and how time and space don’t actually exist as we believe them to, I took him along to see Sunil Shah and Renu Vora’s independent film called The Wisdom Tree Film(which showcased science, art, music, mysticism). As a prerequisite to watching the movie, we watched “What the Bleep Do We Know”.
Sadly, with the comings and goings of a crazily scheduled high schooler’s life, Adi hasn’t had the opportunity to chat with me and delve deep into topics that don’t belong in the realm of normal everyday discussions.
You know how they say it is darkest before it dawns.
Right when I was about to give up hope about all the time and effort that I had put in to Adi… wondering whether what he had heard in the last decade had evaporated into ether…and whether I should really invest that same amount of passion, time and effort with Ari…right at the hopeless moment, magic happened.
Yesterday, I think the Universe conspired to tell me that none of my effort has been wasted.
Adi returned (pun, in case you can notice it?!) home and showed me some digital pictures that he had created online. The pictures are not what amazed me. The titles that he had captioned those kaleidoscopic image is what amazed me.

I love all the #REALITY that exists in #UNREALITY.
There is always #HOPE.
