When I was writing the series of posts under the label 'Understanding Natural Phenomena' on this blog, I received a number of suggestions from readers that such content will be good material if also presented in the audiovisual format.
So here I am, making a beginning with this video, under a new series: Wadhawan Videos on Science. Part 1 is titled ‘Science Answers the Big Questions’:

This video was produced in collaboration with my friend Anjan Madhwesh, and I want to thank him profusely for the ideas and the work he put in. He is the person interviewing me in this video.
Anjan is taking an initiative which is going to be different from what I shall be posting on my blog here from time to time. He plans to produce a variety of presentations (in various formats) with the avowed goal of taking not only science, but also technology to people, and to promote scientific temper in society at large. I shall be collaborating with him in that project, wherever I can. Many other persons will also be involved in that. For updates on this initiative, please subscribe to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCTJvufWrgHs6G41HoakhRw/featured.
By contrast, my purpose on this blog is to produce videos on specific topics in science. For example, the next one in my series will be WVS2: The Second Law of Thermodynamics.
I look forward to your feedback, suggestions, and criticism.
