Relativity and Lord Ganesha

There is an interesting analogy between Ms Light of Relativity and Lord Ganesha of Hindu religion.

According to the Religion of Relativity, Light is always ahead however fast one moves. Even if Mr Neutrino moves faster than Ms Light, Mr Neutrino feels that Ms Light is still ahead of him. This is because Lord Space and Time are with Ms Light.

Similarly, in a race between Ganesha and his brother Kumaraswamy (Murugan), the latter always feels Ganesha is ahead of him despite travelling much faster. This is because of the divine intervention of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi.

So ‘relativity’ is not new but described ages ago in Hindu mythology.
