Button, do you see the ray of light emerging from the bed-side fixture?
I see it. When and where did you click this image?
Yesterday. On the side of our bed where Dost sleeps.
What is light? It’s a miraculous thing because, without it, we wouldn’t be able to see!
You’re right in a sense though there are millions of people who live without electricity and live quite comfortably.
What option do they have? We are the privileged lot who cannot do without lights, without fans and, more shockingly, without air conditioners in summer. There are others who cannot do without air conditioning round the year!
Now tell me what light is.
Light is the path a photon or a group of photons take to move through space in a line perpendicular to the surface on which it falls. We see this as a column of light.
That’s so amazing and interesting. Can we catch light?
I will not answer that question for you. Try it out and tell me the answer when the lights come on.
