We can all remember being taught in schools that the light travels in a straight line, accepted it as the universal truth, and it is firmly ingrained in our minds. But there was someone who was not willing to accept this axiom, and his dogged determination to prove it otherwise, unleashed a new field of study called ‘Fiber Optics’ and he became known as its father. He was not just a scientific trailblazer, but also had a rare privilege of writing his own autobiography. So, such a unique combination makes this book ‘The Man Who Bent Light: Father of Fibre Optics‘ by Dr. Narinder Singh Kapany an interesting read on a fascinating life. Dr. Kapany was born on October 31, 1927.
