I am posting on behalf of Tathagat Bhattacharya. I've already sent him an invite. Hopefully, we're going to have him among us as a primary contributer soon. But, till then, here's a very good question he asked:
Since I don't have the privilege to post in this blog, I am posting a question through the comments box:
Why are most of the objects around us rectangular in shape? If you look around within your house, the cot, the walls, the cupboard, the calender, the TV, the fridge etc etc all are rectangular in shape. The list is un-ending. Does anyone have a clue?
To this our very own genius Karthik gave a very creative answer:
I guess most things are rectangular by design. If they were round, for instance, they would roll away and we would have to keep bringing them back to their original positions:)
