Eureka! races through twenty-three centuries of the spirit of enquiry and discovery, which uncovered secret after secret about the ways of nature. From early Greeks to twentieth-century scientists, this book takes readers to the discoveries of Copernicus, Kepler, Newton, Ampère, Huygens, Dalton, Darwin and many more. Each chapter describes the work of pivotal scientists who sought out and seized patterns that transformed human understanding of nature and the world. The work of each scientist is presented in the context of the time, the challenges faced, the misconceptions cleared and the opposition overcome. This book tells the story of how scientists, through the ages, strove to understand the nature of the physical world, and will, hopefully, inspire new ways of dealing with current challenges.

In recognition of his work, in the year 2007, he received a national award for science communication from the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India.
