I am a mechanical engineer by profession. Just because of my love for fundamental physics, I switched my career, and therefore I did my postgraduate degree in physics. Right now I am a loner (as ever) and a Physics blogger too. My sole future goal is to do a Ph.D. in theoretical physics, especially in the field of cosmology. Because in my view, every aspect of physics comes within the range of cosmology. And I love traveling, especially the Sole one.

  1. Lunar calendar will be more or less same in both northern and southern hemisphere.

    Solar calendar will differ. Do you find solar calendar for southern hemisphere? I was thinking of festivals like lohri, diwali ( if you believe it to be the start of winter in India) – in southern hemisphere.
