Striving for recognition is intrinsic in any human endeavor. Nobel Prize Winners exemplify achievements in diverse fields such as sciences, humanities and the arts. In an exclusive chat with Aglaia.co.in; Ei-ichi Negishi; the 2010 Nobel Prize winner in chemistry outlined individualism, perseverance, optimism and dreaming big as some criteria for success.

Born in Hsingking, Manchukuo; now in China; Mr. Ei-ichi Negishi was educated at the University of Tokyo and Pennsylvania. Best known for the Negishi coupling; Ei-ichi Negishi’s lecture was an informative description of his many decades of work on organic synthesis. He summed up his presentation briefly mentioning d-block transition elements as core drivers in continual global economic growth.

India and its leaders suffer from chronic anxiety,” noted Negishi. According to him; dedication, focus and aiming to be the best in any field could be key takeaways for the nation’s youth. He praised the country’s intellectual prowess; but repeatedly emphasized on mentoring, tenacity, serendipity and a need to discover something new as the hallmarks of an ardent researcher.

The Techfest; India’s largest science fest at the IIT, Bombay saw a footfall of around 92,000 this year. With around 50 exhibits from 20 different countries; the event also showcased innovative products such as MIT Media Lab’s Netra, Advertron; India’s newest advertising and marketing robot and the SOINN based HIRO robot from Hasegawa Labs, Tokyo that adapts to situations based on Artifical Intelligence.

music 300x225 The Musical Gene


By Sunil Kumar

Is music intrinsically related to genes? Like all scientific mysteries, and the rest of the world’s obnoxious theories, we shall never know. But, an interesting and sexist fact. Males produce ten times more music than women.

We have had music since the dawn of time. Notice any important ritual in any religion anywhere in the world. The hills, the houses, the mountains, the lakes, the trees and everything else is alive with the sound of music.

In my existence on the planet, I have read countless times that music is somehow related to the right brain. As if some creative love always manifests itself everywhere but particularly in some strange part of our cerebral cortex.

We have never really achieved enlightenment. Most of us, including some saints, probably were in some self-created delusion. In this column and the next, I will try to make some sense of music, its impact and what the world is.

Classical music in our country is a strange eclectic mixture of sorts. Carnatic and Hindustani are ancient and rich traditions with a timbre, ideas and a vocabulary richer than anywhere else in the world.

The great sitar player Ravi Shankar was among the pioneering exponents of our traditions to the wider world. It is strange that in our country and most now, acceptance of local ideas has to be first routed through the wider world. Undoubtedly, ancient insular societies were more stratified and self-contained, often referring to the outsider as a barbarous entity, and so some rules remained unchanged for centuries.

The world today is sort of similar but very different in a lot of ways. I know, for instance, that the original inhabitants of Australia, the aborigines played the didgeridoo, or that every local tradition had its own vocabulary.

Music is somewhat strange, a creative juxtaposition, an opening of the senses. Or as a rock poet put it, the opening of the doors of perception, deep and wide. What is there on the other side still remains a mystery.

Every day may be a winding road, or we may be listening to why this world is “Kolaveri Di” but music is an unchanging, uncharted emotional hinterland. More later.
