The post-lunch session started with a lecture on ‘Origin and the Dynamics of the Solar System – Some Unsolved Mysteries’ by Prof. Amitabha Ghosh, former Professor of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Kanpur. He explained the motion characteristics of the solar system and the unexplained anomalies.
Prof. Sushanta Duttagupta, former Director IISER Kolkata and former Vice – Chancellor, Visva-Bharti, Shantiniketan concluded the lecture series for the day with a talk on ‘Frictional Mechanics of an Electron in Electric and Magnetic Fields’. He elaborated on many interesting phenomena that result from this along with practical applications. The most awaited event of the day was the drama ‘Aryabhatta’ written by Prof. Amitabha Ghosh, former Professor of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Kanpur and performed by the students of HSMS.
