Twitter is filled with memes as Railway Minister says: “Maths didn’t help Einstein discover gravity” :
After Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman held youngsters responsible for the downfall of the auto sector. As per her, people are not buying cars because they are actively taking Uber and Ola everywhere.
Following the footsteps, Minister of Railways and Commerce Piyush Goyal said something that made us go crazy. In a Board of Trade meeting, he went off on a rant about GDP calculations made by experts.
He made this statement while defending the government against the allegations of the economic slowdown. He was trying to answer the question of how projected GDP growth rates don’t seem to align with the $5 trillion-dollar economy mission. According to him,
He said: “Don’t get into the calculations that you see on television…don’t get into those maths. Maths have never helped Einstein discover gravity. If he had only gone through structured formulae and what was past knowledge, I don’t think there would have been any innovation in the world”.
Twitter has some hilarious reactions to this:
Einstein discovered gravity (that too without Maths) and Newton saw him do it and stole his idea. pic.twitter.com/4op1W6Ah8A

If Einstein discovered gravity, what did Newton do? 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

Stop mocking @PiyushGoyal ! It’s a well known fact that maths didn’t help Einstein to discover gravity. He discovered it when he saw Ola charges coming down after a surge.

Son: Papa, Maths ka exam hai, thoda padha do.
Piyush Goyal: Don’t get into maths. Maths never helped Einstein discover Gravity.

Actually Maths did not help Einstein discover gravity, because,well, he didn’t discover gravity. So what #piyushgoyal said is technically correct. 😂

Brilliant! Maths didn’t help Einstein discover gravity….because he didn’t. Newton did. And obeying gravity, the economy is free falling pic.twitter.com/u1HAFICXS4
