  • There is an ancient Chinese saying "He who labours with his mind rules over he who labours with his hand". This kind of backward idea is very harmful to youngsters from developing countries. Partly because of this type of concept, many students from these countries are inclined towards theoretical studies and avoid experimental work.

    In reality, a theory in natural science cannot be without experimental foundations; physics, in particular, comes from experimental work.
