Power of Madness

Updated: Feb 9, 2021

“Blossom my little seedling, Bloom into the flower that you are…”

In the year of 1879 a half Jewish child was born in Germany.

A rebel, away from the social tactics and stereotypes, he created his own beautiful little land of dreams…

The way he looked at the world, his optique was far away from ours’. No he was not from some land down under,he was just an ordinary child with an extra ordinary


“Sir Albert Einstein”

Einstein was allegedly “slow.” But, he says that was one of the prime reasons why he became who he was…

“Most people grow up at the right time and stop believing in the magic around. According to Einstein, the fact that he took time to develop as a child made him look around and still believe…”

So, technically his brain was not “normal.”

He was the patron saint of distracted schoolkids everywhere.

His parents like most of ours wanted their child to be normal and would force him to go to school and follow rules. But, the storm of a child that Einstein was he did

not want to be the slave of the trend.

This attitude and stature made him discover the astonishing and mind boggling theories such as the ‘theory of relativity’ and ‘the gravitational waves.’

However, it’s a less known fact that Einstein was dyslexic and was detected to be schizophrenic later in his life.

When he was 5 years old, his father brought him a compass. He wondered if there is some force pulling the needle inside. The small compass then became the beginning

of the unstoppable brilliance that he was…

A few years back, I came across a quote, “There is no genius without a hint of madness” and Einstein is evident of the fact that the saying in fact holds true.

Many of history’s most celebrated creative geniuses were in fact “mentally ill” or “crazy” , John Nash was paranoid schizophrenic even Sir Isaac Newton was bipolar.
