Why I wrote this book?
Yesterday, someone asked me, "Why you wrote this book?" I was startled by the direct question and before I could recuperate, next question was hurled at me- "Is it for money?" I was quick to say, "No, I am earning good, why should I worry?" Then I heard the next one, "Is it for fame?" I retorted," No, by nature, I like to keep by myself, I am not keen on that either." "Then what?" probed the questioner. "It is not straightforward to explain the motive behind writing this book," I countered and continued," I had studied about Creation of the Universe through Big-bang and always wondered how that was possible? While investigating this phenomenon, I came across an idea that Universe may have got created from space itself, and my quest took a new turn. I spent many years to visualize the relation between space and matter. My calculations and rough diagrams mostly landed in the waste basket in a mutilated condition beyond recognition, for the fear of anyone discovering what I was working on, to save myself from embarrassment of trying to fix something which I was not considered capable of? When I sniffed success in my endeavor after countless hours of cogitating, my trepidation vanished and I started saving the calculations and diagrams. Now, I only had to add text details to make a case. But, not being a trained physicist, I was at a disadvantage? I also discovered that if the established laws are not adhered to, a new proposal is not considered valid. My contemplations, though logical and mathematically correct, were in disagreement with some of the laws of physics. I was in a fix, and in the danger of squandering all my work without anyone evaluating it. My calculation and drawings were too arduous for any individual to understand. At that juncture, I decided to weave a story to make the content unpretentious by elucidating the prevalent theories from the fundamental level and then anatomizing them in relation to the core idea. Being a novice at writing, I learned the process of writing and publishing and subsequently the book was released after devoting three years to this process. This is how, the book 'Lines of Space' was born which explains how matter can originate from empty space. So, I wrote this book because I was confident that my work is truthful and innovative; and whosoever perused my concept, found it astounding and worth publishing, and persuaded me to share my view on conversion of space into matter with everyone."
