The split between man and maker has long been widening, and many acknowledge that the wedge is science. Given the subtitle of ‘The Spiritual Odyssey of a Man of Science’, and very rightly so called, Code Name God strikes a perfect balance between spirituality and science to explain the deep concepts that seem to be giving shape and meaning to our lives.
Is God dead? Are religion and faith merely opiates of the masses? Is science responsible for driving a wedge between man and his maker? Till about four hundred years ago, belief in divine power dominated world thought. With developments in science and increasing philosophical skepticism, man appeared to lose faith in God. But science itself has proved to be a false god, leaving in its wake a disillusioned and despondent mankind. In his book, Mani Lal Bhoumik begins his profound attempt at answering the above questions by using ingredients from the field of quantum physics amalgamated perfectly with his personal journey from rags to riches.
The author explains his journey from a small town in Bengal to Bel Air during the turbulent periods, when famine had struck Bengal and amidst the chaos of the freedom struggle. His life journey deeply influenced by his father’s ideals and later by great freedom fighters like Mahatma Gandhi are dealt with, in details with a touch of spirituality and techniques like the LASIK technology. Enriching and inspirational, Code Name God provides a simple and easy-to-understand scientific approach to faith and God-realization. It has been referred to as the author’s personal odyssey by a few critics.
The book was published in the year 2006 by Penguin India, and is available in paperback.
