His teacher called him daydreamer and slow thinker, and later he revolutionized science


His teacher called him daydreamer and slow thinker, and later he revolutionized science, yes the greatest thinker of science was once described by his teacher as " a slow thinker and a daydreamer", who was that boy and why was he called a dull boy?
That little boy was none other than "Albert Einstein" yes you heard it right, the greatest genius you know was said to be dull, below given are few of his childhood incidents,
Little Albert looked at the newborn baby lying beside his mother. the mother smiled and said, "Albert now you have something to play with ". the boy looked at his mother and then back at his newborn sister 'Maja'. and was confused and asked his mother 'But mother where are its wheels?'
Einstein as a young boy with his sister Maja

Above incident shows, he was thinking in a very different way,
Albert was 4 years old when he began to speak and seven before he could read, One evening at the dinner table Einstein suddenly spoke out a complete sentence for the first time, in a very complaining Voice,
"The soup is too hot"
Shocked and surprised were his parents, his father asked him why he had never spoken before, Albert's answer was,
"Because till now everything was in order."
Above incident shows, he was just a quiet child and not a late talker,
4 years young Albert Einstein
Later when Albert grew up, he said because he was slow, he spent a lot of his time in thinking over problems of physics and this helped him discover some very amazing laws of science.
Young Albert Einstein
And now we would see a few interesting incidents of his life, don't worry we wouldn't be explaining you his laws and theories,
Albert Einstein was often asked for explaining the general theory of relativity, and he explained,
"Put your hand on a stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour," "sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. that's relativity "
Albert Einstein enjoyed sailing and playing the violin, Once Einstein was rehearsing a Haydn string quartet, when he failed for the fourth time, the teacher looked up and said "The problem with you, Albert, is that you simply can't count"
Einstein was an "absent-minded professor", sometimes he would be so busy and involved in solving physics problem that he would have trouble in remembering his own address.
1905 the year of wonder: In this single year, Albert prepared some scientific papers (now commonly known as the "Annus Mirabilis Papers")it was surprising that Einstein wrote such wonderful papers, this is because he spent all of his time in his job and worked on these papers only in his spare time. later these papers totally transformed the world of physics.
The wise driver :
Albert Einstein's driver used to sit at the back of his lectures, after some time he remarked to Einstein that he could give the lectures himself because he had heard it several times, so at next touring lecture they switched places driver dressed at Albert and Albert sat at back, the driver gave the lecture without any mistake, then someone asked a difficult question, but the driver did not get nervous and said, "well the answer to that question is so simple that even my driver sitting at the back there could answer it.. "
In 1921 Einstein was awarded the Nobel prize for his earlier work on the photoelectric effect,
The scientist and the Comedian:
When Charlie Chaplin met Albert Einstein
Charlie Chaplin invited Albert Einstein to the premiere of his movie City Lights when public cheered them both Chaplin remarked :
"They cheer me because they all understand me, and they cheer you because no one understands you"
Escape from Germany:
After Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, Einstein's scientific theories were publicly criticized, Einstein left Germany and sought refuge in the United States,
The Brain
Einstein allowed his brain to be studied after his death and it was preserved by Dr.Thoman Stoltz Harvey, But doctor Harvey found nothing unusual with his brain , However in 1999 scientists discovered that the part of the brain thought to be related to mathematical reasoning - the inferior parietal region - was 15 % wider than normal on both sides,They also found that the groove that normally runs from the front of the brain to back did not extend all the way and this could be the key to Einstein's genius, because it might have allowed more neurons in this area to establish connections between each other and work together more easily.
Einstein died in Princeton, New Jersey, on April 18, 1955, He was cremated in accordance with his wishes and his ashes were scattered at an undisclosed place.
So little 'dull genius ' became worlds most famous thinker "The genius Brain", thanks for reading this article for more such articles keep following our page.
