Is god Dead? Are religion and faith merely opiates of the Masses? Till about four hundred years Ago, belief in divine power dominated world thought. With developments in science and increasing philosophical skepticism, man appeared to lose faith in god. But science itself has proved to be a false god, leaving in its wake a disillusioned and despondent mankind.
In Code Name God, Mani Bhaumik one of the pioneers of the laser technology that made the corrective eye surgery LASIK possible, demonstrates how both spirituality and science are essential for human beings and how one can strike a perfect balance between the tow. The author, who as a youngster lived in Mahatma Gandhi's camp, details his incredible rags-to-riches journey and his equally remarkable search for meaning in life, which make for a motivational saga as he strives to achieve the golden mean between science and spirituality.
Enriching and inspirational, Code Name God provides a simple and easy-to-understand scientific approach to faith and God-realization.
