Moreover, there were many other astonishing discoveries and findings that he did not bring to light deliberately fearing the risk involved, if fallen into wrong hands. His ground-breaking inventions include Alternating Current, Peace Ray, humanoid robots, television, remote control, x-rays, wireless power transmission, Time Travel, to name a few. Dr Tesla also aspired to provide free electricity to the whole world. This creative genius found the breakthrough in harnessing the power of electricity, consequently laying the foundation of the Second Industrial Revolution. He was known as the inventor of the Electric Age.
Born in 1856, a Serbian American, Dr Tesla displayed his brilliance and exceptional abilities since childhood. Having grown up in a religious family, he had an unswerving faith in the Almighty. And it was his faith in God that kept him going and never let troubles weigh him down. His life story is an extraordinary series of triumphs and tribulations, marred by envy, competition and losses. Despite witnessing unprecedented success, amassing wealth was never his goal, instead Tesla refused to get bogged down by powerful heavyweights who wished to accomplish their diabolical intentions using his research. His then, contemporaries tried to destroy him by all means but failed to dampen his spirit. With his unparalleled grit and never-say-die attitude, he rose like phoenix never to look back again.
However, over the course of time, this inspirational story of such a visionary who was centuries ahead of his time was manipulated to fade into oblivion. In 2014, Sadguru Aniruddha (Dr Aniruddha Joshi, MD Medicine, fondly known as Aniruddha Bapu in his discourse spoke highly about this humble yet magnanimous personality. Thereafter, a series of articles covering all facets of Dr Nikola Tesla was published in a Marathi newspaper ‘Dainik Pratyaksha’. In the foreword of this book, Dr Aniruddha Joshi writes, “Several call him ‘God of Science’. If you ask me, Dr Nikola Tesla is indeed the greatest scientist the world has ever seen. Moreover, the chances of someone able to match his achievements in future are almost next to nil.”
