  • The Story So Far ... - Unreal Blog
    my BTech I did what most IITians are supposed to do I moved to the states Upstate New York was my destination I joined the Physics Department of Syracuse University to do my PhD in High Energy Physics And boy did a lot of things happen during those 6 years Half of those 6 years were spent at Cornell University in Ithaca That was in Aug 1987 Then in 1993 Sept the prestigious French national research organization CNRS Centre national de la recherche scientifique hired me I moved to France to continue my research work at ALEPH CERN My destination in France was the provencal city of Marseilles My home institute was Centre de Physique des Particules de Marseille or CPPM Of course I didn t speak a word of French but that didn t bother me much Before going to the US in 1987 I didn t speak much English Americanese either End of 1995 on the 29th of Dec I got married to Kavita In early 1996 Kavita also moved to France Kavita wasn t too happy in France because she felt she could do much more in Singapore She was right Kavita is now an accomplished entrepreneur with two boutiques in Singapore and more business ideas than is good for her She has won many awards and is a minor celebrity with the Singapore media In 1998 I got a good offer from what is now the Institute for Infocomm Research and we decided to move to Singapore Among the various personal reasons for the move I should mention that the smell of racisim in the Marseilles air was one Although every individual I personally met in France was great I always had a nagging feeling that every one I did not meet wanted me out of there This feeling was further confirmed by the immigration clerks at the Marignane airport constantly asking me to Mettez vous a cote monsieur and occassionally murmuring les francais d abord A week after I moved to Singapore on the 24rth of July 1998 Anita was born Incredibly cute and happy Anita rearranged our priorities and put things in perspective Five years later on the 2nd of May 2003 Neil was born He proved to be even more full of smiles In Singapore I worked on a lot of various body based measurements generating several patents and papers Towards the end of my career with A Star I worked on brain signals worrying about how to make sense of them and make them talk directly to a computer This research direction influenced my thinking tremendously though not in a way my employer would ve liked I started thinking about the role of perception in our world view and consequently in the theories of physics I also realized how these ideas were not isolated musings but were atriculated in various schools of philosophy This line of thinking eventually ended up in my book The Unreal Universe Towards the second half of 2005

  • Why did Federer Lose? - Unreal Blog
    aging are very different Still I wish he would stick around a bit longer A few months ago I listened to a series of interesting lectures on the effects of aging on our perception and sensory processes One thing new that I learned there was that we all have a sixth sense in addition to sight hearing touch taste and smell It is the kinesthetic muscle feedback which is the sense that allows you to apply just the right amount of pressure for instance when braking your car or holding a baby You may lose this sense when you get angry and break the glass you are holding if we are to believe Hollywood movies In certain games this sense can make an enormous difference I had a friend who was a pool shark He once told me that at the top of his game he could feel the tiny nicks and scratches on the cue ball through the cue stick in his hand When I knew him he was well past his prime but he could still call shots like bank off the point of the side pocket and double kiss into the corner pocket And make them So I believe him and Eddie Felson The Hustler when he says the cue stick when he holds it has nerves I bet Federer could feel the seams of the tennis ball and the amount of spin he was putting on them through the strings and the grip of his racket Age blunts the sharpness of all of your senses The most obvious is your sight In your forties you have to hold your smart phone farther and farther away from your face to read the tiny screen At some point your hand is not long enough and you end up using reading glasses reluctantly at first but more readily as the years roll by and the images get blurrier Apparently you lose your sensitivity to high pitched sound as well So teenagers can download ringtones that their parents and teachers are deaf to But the first sense to go is the muscle feedback which begins to decline in your teens This apparently is the reason why the Olympic gymnasts are all teenagers By the time they are in their twenties this sense of theirs is already too weak to keep them competitive at that level I guess it is this sense that has deserted Roger Federer as well Frederer s brand of tennis with its finesse and artistry demanded more of this sense His opponents tend to hit flatter and harder I read somewhere that they use stiffer rackets for this purpose and can hold Federer behind the baseline The champion stubbornly refuses to switch to this style and this kind of rackets May be he is getting a bit too old Reminds me of Bjorn Borg when he attempted a mini come back with his wooden racket Share this Click to share on Reddit Opens in new window Click
