For the more the book is sectioned off into four parts namely Perceiving God, Introduction, importance of science – religion dialogue and personal interaction with God, Laser cooling of atom and the role of a personal God.
From time immemorial there has been a debate that science and religion cannot be used equally in a sentence for mounting to the contradictory thoughts. However, Dr. T.D.
