SHIMLA: A Canadian journal is publishing a research paper by a scientist in Himachal Pradesh that claims to find shortcomings in Einstein's theory of relativity.

"I have suggested in a 40-page paper a new alternative for changes in Einstein's theory," Ajay Sharma, the scientist, told IANS.

He produced a letter sent by "Physics Essays, an international journal dedicated to fundamental questions in physics", which is publishing his paper.

"I have seriously analysed Einstein's 1905 research paper and have found conceptual mistake while deriving E=mc2," Sharma.

"This theory is valid for nuclear reactions only, but hasn't been confirmed in the burning of fuels. I have suggested a new equation," he said.

"I am currently writing a book 'E=mc2 After 100 Years'," Sharma, said.

"Even though I have so far been invited to 30 international conferences to present papers, I feel neither Indian scientists nor foreign scientists give due consideration to scientific work published in Indian journals," he lamented.
