Godforsaken science is an even greater religion than the organised forms of sects like Islam, Sikhism or Chritianianity etc are.

Religion is one of the subjects that fascinate me - some others include poetry, science, philosophy and music. But when I talk of religion as a profound concern, I certainly do not refer to either of the prevalent forms of organised religion -- Sikhism, Islam, Hinduism, Christianity, communism etc. A yearning either to unravel the mysteries of life or to marvel at them -- that's what religion means to me, and in this , a Godforsaken field like science is as close to me as the poetry of Guru Nanak or the Gita or the works of mystical poets are.
