A few days back I had shared an old interview of mine with Rajeev Makhani on NDTV Prime about barefeet running. It was only part of second episode of 2 episode series.

Some 'expert' jumped in with his comments without knowing enough either about the subject or the context. Sadly my colleague was going on about a few terms that make doctors sound very intelligent. Butt then I am too much of a Richard Feynman fan & follower. 

You can know the name of that bird in all the languages of the world, but when you’re finished, you’ll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird. You’ll only know about humans in different places, and what they call the bird. ... I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.

Simple is beautiful but ex-perts are busy perting & complicating it because simple would not give them an orgasm.

Yesterday I stumbled upon a post on Instagram by natgeo that was simply awesome. I'll not even attempt to say anything because it's so simply and beautifully explained, that I couldn't add any more.

I would rather know something than know the name of something because by knowing the name of something, I'll end up knowing nothing about the something.  Not that I know anything.
