Versatile Benjamin Franklin

leave a comment »

I first learnt on Glass harmonica at the Museum Unterlinden in Colmar, French, a year ago. Benjamin Franklin is mentioned as one of the designers. He is an inmpressive guy, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, a noted polymath, Franklin was a leading author and printer, satirist, political theorist, politician, scientist, inventor, civic activist, statesman, soldier, and diplomat. How can one have so many professions in a life? Today, the advices that I have been receiving is: choose a career and be very good in it.

Perhaps, it is time for the leaders of tomorrow to consider a career portfolio.

For an academician, it is interesting to note that Benjamin Franklin played a major role in establishing the University of Pennsylvania and was elected the first president of the American Philosophical Society.

Benjamin Franklin was born on Milk Street, in Boston, Massachusetts, on January 17, 1706. Will I be able to see his home after more than 3 centuries? Anyway, it is not that important to see his house, it is more useful to learn from him on how to make positive differences in the world we are living in.
