Despite the fact that they have significantly added to the amount of human intelligence, the identities of thousands of scientists remain largely obscure. One of those several scientists was the man who is known as the “Father Of Modern Physics” and the creator of the world of electrical engineering. He’s considered by Albert Einstein to be the most prominent and prolific figure in the history of physics.
He is James Clerk Maxwell, and his life is worthy of praise and recognition.

Born on June 13th, 1831, Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell is one of the three most prominent and noteworthy scientists in history. For the profound essence of his efforts and innovations, his name ranks after Mathematician and Physicist “Sir Isaac Newton” and Theoretical Physicist “Albert Einstein”. Many contemporary physicists view him as a nineteenth-century scientist who had the biggest impact on twentieth-century physics.
Maxwell was born into a middle-class family and had been an innovator since he was a kid. His priorities were much broader than the school curriculum, and he paid no attention to his grades. He wrote and published his very first research article at the tender age of 14. Throughout his life, he was fascinated with mechanical structures and mathematics, which proved to be extremely useful in his numerous studies.
Through his equations (Maxwell’s Equations), he paved the way for modern physics, inspiring and influencing many scientists, including Einstein, to develop his “Theory of Relativity.” The most notable contribution of James Clerk Maxwell is his theory of “electromagnetism” (1865) which states that light, electricity, and magnetism are all generated by the same force. This was deemed by many great physicists, including Albert Einstein and Max Planck, to be the greatest scientific discovery of the twentieth century.
In addition, Maxwell developed the “kinetic theory of gases,” which has since become one of the most significant theories in modern physics. His concepts also laid the foundation for “Quantum Mechanics,” a significant breakthrough in twentieth-century physics.

Maxwell also created the world’s first colored image after realizing that the human eye could only discern three colors, Red, Blue, and Green. The three types of cones in the human eye function together to give you the ability to see billions of different colors in the world.
Maxwell carried out an experiment to demonstrate that any color can be created by combining red, green, and blue light in the right proportions. He produced a colored photograph of a tartan ribbon by layering red, blue, and green filtered photographs together.
But it was Maxwell’s electromagnetism discovery that cemented his place among history’s greatest scientists. Radio, tv, motors, microwaves, speakers, and MRI machines would not exist without Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetism.
The world lost this brilliant physicist on November 5, 1879. However, he had already made an indelible mark on the world of physics. About the fact that his identity is not as renowned as that of other scientists such as Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein, and Sir Issac Newton, Maxwell’s discoveries were revolutionary.
Many stray animals are trying to survive as the temperature in the capital continues to drop. Many strays lose this battle trying to find food and warmth under a scrap of clothing or caged up in the corner of streets. The Perroayuda Welfare Foundation (PWF), a Delhi-based animal welfare organisation, recently held a Mega Stray Feeding Drive in Lajpat Nagar with the goal of feeding all of the area's stray animals. These wonderful Samaritans come from all around Delhi-NCR with one goal in mind: to rescue, feed, and adopt all animals in need.

PWF has previously staged feeding drives in Netaji Subhash Place, Connaught Place, North Campus, Delhi University, and other locations throughout the city. A group of 70 volunteers fed over 100 stray dogs in the vicinity and provided water in earthen bowls. To raise awareness about the issue of stray animals, volunteers talked with businesses, local authorities, customers, and hawkers. The actions of this group of young animal advocates were recognised and supported.
"Donations come in from all around the world." To save strays and pay for their treatment, we rely completely on donations. "Every day, our organisation feeds roughly 1000 stray dogs," says Arpit Mathur, the organisation's founder. "Throughout the day, we receive SOS calls. We can only accomplish so much with our limited staff and resources. We hope that more young people, like us, would join us in this cause." In Rohini, the NGO also maintains a recovery centre. Currently, the recovery centre accommodates roughly 40 animals, including cats, dogs, monkeys, and a few unusual birds.

PWF seeks to discover and feed all stray animals in need, as well as provide them with food, care, affection, and medical treatment, and organise Mega Stray Feeding Drives to raise awareness and adoption. "We discover stray animals, pet them, and feed them - no one deserves to be hungry," Mathur adds. (IANS/ MBI)

Indonesian lawmakers passed a law on the relocation of the nation's capital to the island of Kalimantan, which shares borders with Malaysia and Brunei, from the most populated island of Java. The move is a step forward in one of the most ambitious projects initiated by the country's President Joko Widodo, Xinhua news agency reported. Some former presidents had floated ideas of relocating the capital city in the past. The president, widely known as Jokowi, three years ago vowed to relocate the capital city to the province of East Kalimantan due to a number of issues like high population density and land subsidence in Jakarta which is home to more than 10 million people.

Nusantara, which the new capital is called, will be built in two districts in East Kalimantan -- Penajam Paser Utara and Kutai Kartanegara. It is set to occupy about 256,000 hectares of land. The name of Nusantara, which can be translated as an archipelago in English, was chosen by President Jokowi, Minister for National Development Planning Suharso Monoarfa has said. Indonesia, the world's fourth most populous country, is home to some 270 million people, consisting of about 17,000 islands. "The national capital has a central function and serves as a symbol of a country to show the identity of the nation and state," Minister Monoarfa explained during a meeting with lawmakers at the House of Representatives on Tuesday.

The ground-breaking of the construction project that is slated to cost $32 billion was initially expected to be conducted in August 2020, but the Covid pandemic has forced the government to put it on hold. Some of the projects on the construction of the new capital will be carried out by public-private partnerships, and the early stage of the relocation will begin this year and is expected to end in 2024. At this stage, the government will build a presidential palace, parliament buildings, and a housing complex in the primary zone. The move of civil servants at the early stage must be completed before August 16, 2024.

Nusantara will serve as the centre of government, while Jakarta would remain the business and economic centre of Indonesia, Southeast Asia's biggest economy. A day before the lawmakers passed the bill, President Jokowi stressed that that new capital is not only about physically relocating the offices of government institutions, but also "building a new smart city." It has been reported that Nusantara will be headed by an authority chief appointed by the president and its level of position is equal to a minister. Several former government officials which will likely become the chief include Jakarta's former governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama and former minister for research and technology Bambang Brodjonegoro.
