Playing with fire

The Times of India writes of the late Raja Ramanna that

he had the capacity to design a nuclear bomb with one hand and play Bach, Beethoven and Lizst with the other.

Given that most of us need at least two hands in order to pursue either hobby, the survival of this planet in the early 70s may be attributable to nothing more than the inability of “the bomb uncle” to get hold of a copy of Liszt’s Transcendental Etudes.
