Preface

Human beings started making use of chemistry several centuries ago, but the early practitioners did not know how and why things happened. Excellent chemical research was carried out during the 1 and 19 centuries, Lavoisier, Faraday and Dalton being prominent names from that era. The very first compound in chemistry was synthesized in 1828. Modern chemistry is, however, a 20" century subject, since it is in this century that we got to know of all the elements in the periodic table. It is early in the 20" century that the idea of the chemical bond was proposed. Chemistry has blossomed since then, over the last 100 years. We have many compounds and structures and we have also developed new ways of thinking about matter and life. Chemical thinking has influenced biology, materials science and other areas. The subject is growing continually and has fascinated many people. Those who have been attracted by chemistry have become worshippers of the subject. Those who have properly understood how chemistry works have become pioneers and architects of science. Good chemists generally possess a kind of intuition based on logic and creativity. This unusual attribute called chemical intuition is based on facts and theories, and contains an element which is somewhat difficult to explain to those who know little chemistry. This booklet tries to show how chemistry has progressed over the years, and highlights major developments in this extraordinary subject.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
