‘Everyone makes mistakes,’ Union Minister Piyush Goyal on his slip of tongue crediting Einstein for discovery of gravity

While addressing a trade body yesterday, Goyal had mistakenly attributed discovery of gravity to Einstein instead of Sir Isaac Newton.

Union Minister for Railways, Piyush Goyal today acknowledged his ‘Einstein’ goof up and said that it was a slip of tongue. “Mistakes are made by everybody and I’m not one of them who is scared of making a mistake,” he said while attending an event in Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. Goyal was attending an event to flag off new trips of Rajdhani Express from Mumbai to Delhi.

While addressing a trade body yesterday, Goyal had mistakenly attributed discovery of gravity to Einstein instead of Sir Isaac Newton. After the gaffe snowballed into a huge controversy, Goyal had issued a statement that the comment had a certain context and some people were taking it out of context, picking up one line and creating a mischievous narrative.

Speaking on achieving USD 5 trillion economy, Goyal had said that one should not get into the maths as it didn’t help Albert Einstein to discover gravity. “Do not get into the calculations that you see on television…Oh if you are looking at USD 5 trillion economy, the country will have to grow at 12 per cent, today it is growing at 6-7 per cent…. This maths did not help Einstein discover gravity..…” he had said.
