Exchange – The essence of Existence

Most of the forces of nature are caused by some sort of exchange of particles among the bodies – as the scientists explain them. Otehrwise, they didn’t have an explanation to the ‘Why” behind the forces. Why shouold a body exert a force on another body at a distance? How does the body know that there is a body kept at a distance and then exert a force on it? On eof the theories explaining the cause is that the forces are of an exchange type. H Yukawa used this concept to explain the origin of nuclear forces. The force between the constituents of the nucleus is called nuclear force. This is believed to be the strongest force in nature. But this is of very short range. This force can be experienced only at a distance of the order of 10-15 m. Yukawa said that tehre are some tiny particles called mesons which are exchanged between the nucleons and that this exchange process is responsible for holding the nucleons together inside the nucleus. He compared the exchange process to two doge fighting each other for a bone. as long as there is the bonme. the two dogs will be BOUND fighting for the bone. Each of the two dogs wants to possess the bone, but they are trying to snatch the bone from the other. If one is taking it, the other will continue to fight to get back and thus the bond between them is maintained during the process of snatching the bone from others.

We have a lesson of life to learn from here. any relation is based on some sort of exchange or the other. there may be exchange of love, gifts, money etc. The exchanging binds the minds.

The famous words “Don’t ask what the country has given to you, but ask yourselves what you have given to the coubtry” is relevant here.

We are born with many talents and capabilities. have we identified what we are worth? Are we utilizing the talents possessed by us for the betterment of humankind? Ask yourselves. If your answer is no, then this ius the time. Think how betsyour talents can be put to for the betterment of your coubtry, state or city. “We are the people” is one of the stories I remember now. When we say the citizens of a country (say, our country) we often think about ourselves but include all others except ourselves to the group of citizens and criticicze them. Let the change start from you. when you improve yourselves, there is atleast one good citizen who loves the country and ready to fully utilize the talents and potentials. Seeeing your work the others will also follow suite. Be the change that you want to see!
