  1. It’s Feynman’s birthday today. I spent the day thinking what a legend he was. He is one of the few who have inspired me so profoundly. We named our son after him. His middle name is Feynman. This surprised many considering we are Indians, born to Hindu parents (although both of us are atheists) and do not have the cultural concept of middle names. I hope my son will grow up to be half as crazy and brilliant as the man himself.

    • Great……Just need to kindle the curiosity and passion for questioning and observing the wonderful workings of nature in him,I beleive anybody who is curious and determined enough will become a great scientist.I had also thought of naming my kid feynman in future.As Feynman says…”Why do you care what others think”…..so dont mind your hindu..or whatever…..
