Most fascinating, complex, illuminating and often frightening history of ‘us’, from the origin of the universe to an unknown future. Except for the part dealing with the evolution of the human race, where one can get less convinced about the very linear nature of it, the entire book keeps you spellbound, makes it a mind-boggling reading. The last chapter about the future is even more interesting, especially when it says that not only we the humans and other living, but even the earth and the sun would meet their end at a later date in future. “It will turn out that everything that seemed permanent in our universe was actually ephemeral”, the author concludes. Didn’t our elders call it ‘Maya’?
A must-read book, with lots of ‘may be’s, ‘may have’s, that leave a thinking person conclude with a sigh that after all this is a divine game
