The theory of ‘RELATIVITY’… in a more Relatable way!


I ASSURE YOU THAT THIS AINT A PHYSICS LECTURE. CHILL! YOU WON’T SNORE.


What is the The Theory Of Relativity?


(This is what Wikipedia provided me)


The theory of relativity usually encompasses two interrelated theories by Albert Einstein: special relativity and general relativity. Special relativity applies to all physical phenomena in the absence of gravity. General relativity explains the law of gravitation and its relation to other forces of nature. It applies to the cosmological and astrophysical realm, including astronomy.


But since I am not that genius to figure out what that really means, here’s another from another site.


The theory is deceptively simple. First, there is no “absolute” frame of reference. Every time you measure an object’s velocity, or its momentum, or how it experiences time, it’s always in relation to something else. Second, the speed of light is the same no matter who measures it or how fast the person measuring it is going. Third, nothing can go faster than light.


But why should we bother too much in learning in depth of this concept when our own Einstein could easily make it more “relatable”?


Here is what he said..


When you sit with a nice girl for two hours you think it’s only a minute, but when you sit on a hot stove for a minute you think it’s two hours. That’s relativity.


Ahhh! Now I know what relativity is.
This thing happens to all of us.


When we do anything that we enjoy, time flies soooo fast like our Jerry (Tom and Jerry),
• Watching a movie
• The breaks that we take amid our work
• Calling your best friend… or…
• Watching your favourite show on TV
• And of course … Sleep!
All of these passes off in a jiffy, just when we are starting to enjoy it. And it’s horrible! We can all relate to the last one .. sleep.


Just when we are right in the middle of a wonderful sleep… Accepting the award for the BOOKER PRIZE, or perhaps Nobel Prize would do, OR Winning the OSCARS!
BEEP… BEEP.. BEEP…
(And yeah.. here comes the alarm)


And those experts who write long long articles stating that the night time is a bit longer in the southern hemisphere during the winters…. I dare challenge him to come convince me!


When we are enjoying something, we don’t care about the time.
Have you ever gone shopping in malls? Of course you might have! (What a dumb question to ask!)
But the real question is that.. have you ever seen a window there? Inside the mall? Nope, right?!


Oh.. the first reason that comes to your mind will be “because it is under centralised Air conditioning!?”
Yeah, but why would it hinder the existence of just a glass pane? This is a business technique!


When you are in the mall, you might be busy shopping (window shopping included), and if in some way you see how quickly the time has passed, you might have the urge to leave. So.. no windows!
It is a natural tendency to forget time and enjoy the moment. It is all a trick of our minds.


Sitting in an exam hall, a student who have not at all prepared, would feel like the time is passing soooo slowly, but for a person who have prepared from the top corner of the portion to the bottom, would feel as if time is passing too quickly..


Do you want me to say more about the “boring lectures”?
But what about Sundays?
9:30 a.m…. After some time… 1:45p.m…….. 6:30 p.m
Monday – 5:00 a.m.. 6:00 a.m… 6:15 Am.. Mondays would be squeezing us.. punishing us for every second we breathe! And Sundays would finish quickly like my mother’s Biryani. It doesn’t last a second!


But I love Fridays more than weekends. The real beginning of weekends. Ah! What fun that day is!


P. S: I still don’t know how the Wikipedia definition and this post is relatable! ‘Cosmological and astrophysical realm’?!!! Never mind!😐☺️


Which one do you prefer to do, concerning a ‘book turned into a movie’?


READ. LOVE. LIVE.

  1. A nice post! Certainly, it makes you read the whole of it!
    The window logic was….🤐😈. The Einstein theory is still overhead.
    And at the end, thanks for the barrage of likes at my blog.😅 If you get time, then do give them a read if you haven’t.😅💫✨
