Mind is a moth eaten spider’s web!

Have you ever wondered about this? I have! This morning I thought I would go back into my childhood, try and remember where I was on Vijayadashimi day, 50 years back?

The scientist haven’t been able to unravel the mysteries if how data is stored in the brain, but it is amazing indeed.
