Indian Minister ne Einstein aur Newton ko confuse kar diya
We’ve all known prominent personalities from all over the world, generally from the field of politics, often end up putting forth factually bizarre statements for the pulc to ponder on.
Recently, while speaking at a press conference, Indian Minister Piyush Goyal said Einstein discovered gravity
It appears to have happened unconsciously (or may be otherwise) made an inane statement that “Einstein” discovered gravity without Mathematics.
What he may have forgotten to add was that it’s only fair to assume, Isaac Newton was just a bloke who stole the former’s thunder.
How would India become a $5 trillion economy?

Some suggested that Newton could just change his name to “Einstein” so that the Minister sahab‘s statement can be true

The poor Minister couldn’t differentiate between the two scientists

After the trolling the Indian Minister released another statement in his defense to clarify his mistake.
In his statement, he said, “I was making a comment about encouraging Indian industry/ Indian business to aspire for a one trillion dollar export target within the next 5 years and to encourage enthuse the exporter community.”
Then he added, “The comment that I made had a certain context. Unfortunately, some friends have sought to remove the context, pickup one line and create a mischievous narrative.”
Regarding the statement about Einstein, he said, “it is not being interpreted correctly”.

But people don’t seem to be very happy with his clarification
Because, well… the dude DOESN’T get where he went wrong!
Still he didn’t discover that it’s Newton who found gravity? 🤣🤣🤣 feeling sorry for you people!

Some said the clarification was worse than the original statement
— Rupa Subramanya (@rupasubramanya) September 12, 2019
Others were just confused
So it's true Einstein discovered Gravity as per this clarification ?

Some even compared it to a comedy show where none of the jokes really work
This is like a stand-up comedy. When you crack a joke no one laughs then you crack another worst one and expect people to laugh. I am laughing anyway.
