    I read the article Implication of Higgs Bososn Discovery. Dude, it’s really written in very simple language without any overflowing scientific theory that helps a layman like me to extract enough info and concept out of that. I really appreciate your work and concept clarity. Keep yourself active and agile so that knowledge acquire a smooth channel in you to flow towards naive eager scientist. .
