I have a friend in the Physics department and he is addicted to his theories and problems and he does not find interest in any other thing surrounding him. If you have a chance to talk to him on any topics, say on film or literature, he will take you to the magnificent world of Physics. I have another friend in the department of Botany and he is mad with the plants of all kinds. He is addicted to Botany, you can understand. One day, I was fortunate for this, these two good friends of me visited my home and they had a long discourse on the respective subjects. I thought there would be some undesirable moments. Believe me, I did learn that each of them were no less conversant of either of the two subjects and that they were as happy as people could be. I want to ask you which one these two subjects, Physics and Botany, you will feel interested.

I'm interested in both physics and botany, but physics is, in my opinion, more fascinating and complex. If you zoom more and more on a plant, it's all down to physics, to how the particles interact on a subatomic level...

Thank you for the participation and you are right. Sometimes students think in a different way. It appears to them that Physics and Botany have little relation and some students are addicted to Physics and Mathematics and love to dwell in a magical world where to solve a problem is as pleasing as to kiss a babe. Still Botany has its own wonder where the seeds are so desperate that they exert continuous pressure on the mother earth to display their smiling faces. My heart is filled with joy when I remember how naughty the chlorophyll in the green leaves are and how apt they are to trap the photons in order to serve a few of them in my daily dish.

This is a very old post. But it interests me because I hated Physics as a kid due to the complexity. I could understand things which I could see and feel. So, I found botany interesting. Also I feel that Botany is not a short subject. It takes ages to master the art of identifying plants. If you throw in the uses of different kinds of plants- crops, medicinal, poisonous, etc, it will take more time. As per Physics is concerned, like Maths, it can be limitless. Not due to the fact that all the physical phenomenon exist, but we can have endless postulations and theories. All the facts need not be true, but the subject will go on. I saw this in a documentary called "the Net".
