Prasanna asked:

we know light has got dual nature. & blackholes has got enormous gravity from which even light cant escape. how can gravity can influence a mass less stream of particles like gravity?

Ans:

Do you know why solar eclipse is watched with great importance by the scientific community?

OK

Einstein’s theory of General Relativity was proved right(?) when bending of light by masses was observed in reality.

Please go through the links below and hope that you’ll find an answer there.
