A sense of curiosity is nature’s original school of education...


Curiosity is the engine of intellectual achievement — it’s what drives us to keep learning, keep trying, keep pushing forward. But how does one generate curiosity, in oneself or others?





Curiosity arises,  “when attention becomes focused on a gap in one’s knowledge. Such information gaps produce the feeling of deprivation labeled curiosity. The curious individual is motivated to obtain the missing information to reduce or eliminate the feeling of deprivation.” Loewenstein’s theory helps explain why curiosity is such a potent motivator: it’s not only a mental state but also an emotion, a powerful feeling that impels us forward until we find the information that will fill in the gap in our knowledge... Dr.Umesh I have created, this blog for my son Master.Vinayak, so that, he can satisfy his curiosity, which I feel  is one of the greatest sources of happiness in life. 

Several quotes encouraged me to do this.....

Curiosity is the very basis of education and knowledge... Curiosity will conquer fear even more than bravery will...Free curiosity is of more value than harsh discipline....Curiosity is, in great and generous minds, the first passion and the last...
