Space - I unable to recollect that - When this word was introduce to me?. But, I remember that, I, many times, use to quarrel with my first standard class mates to leave some space in the first bench in the class room. For that space, I always tried to be early in the class than any body. That time the space for me is the area.
I still remember my third standard experiment - blowing the balloon - to check the characteristics of air that occupies the space. This time my space is also a volume.
Till my fifth standard, I was unable to understand the difference between the space on the bench and space in balloon, where I was introduced with the graphs and 3D space by my Grand Father who is a Maths teacher. Here my space has the dimensions and coordinates. Then I had a little bit intuition about space.
As I am growing, my space for the space also growing. In my seventh standard, the new space was introduced to me by the Radio program on Gravitation and Einstein, where time is added to my space. This time this space is out of my reach. Only I am able to understand that space is not easy thing to understand but it is so critical that I have to dig in it. That is the first time interest in space deepened and till today I am studying about it. This space and time only introduced me to the Einstein.
Up to my12th standard, my mind revolved around the space for analyzing it in mathematical and physical way. I use to collect books on space and Einstein, still I am collecting and reading them to understand.
Suddenly, my life space changed from my space to Electronics space as career, after 12th standard. But I never left my space. I still use to analyze electronics with my space effects. Most of the times I am able to understand and imagine the electronics better with my space.
My thinking, my interests, my affection towards the space are deepening day by day and they are ever brightening.
One surprise thing is that, my space thinking is also propagated to my little child also. She is also asking a lot of questions about space beyond the earth. Some times I have to refer to answer her questions. She is fascinated about outer space and space stations.
That is why, the space is very powerful word - not a word, but it is an idea and a thinking - which influencing my life.
