Albert Einstein (1879- 1955) and Rabindranath Tagore (1861 – 1941) have more than just wild hairdos in common. They are one of the foremost thinkers of our time — and are both winners of the prestigious Nobel Prize.
Tagore was a poet, philosopher and nationalist who was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913, becoming the first Asian to win a Nobel Prize. He wrote a number of Indian independence movement songs including the Indian National Anthem.
Einstein on the other hand is widely regarded as the greatest scientist of the 20th century. He proposed the theory of relativity and also made major contributions to the development of quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and cosmology. He was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize for Physics for his explanation of the photoelectric effect in 1905 and “for his services to Theoretical Physics”.
I am almost convinced that unruly hair is an essential prerequisite to unbound intellectual prowess.
