Albert Einstein is one of the greatest scientists of the world. As a man he was higher than that leaving aside his books and laboratories results. His observations about ordinary life are also astonishing.
Being a Jew, he felt threatened when Hitler came to power. Hitler was of the opinion that Jews are lesser mortals and they will spoil the marshal German race. They should therefore be eliminated. Einstein decided to relinquish his German citizenship, migrated to America and lived there ever after.
A delegation of Israeli leaders approached Albert Einstein with an aim to make him the head of Israel. According to them it would be an honour for Israel. But the delegates were disappointed. Albert Einstein did not accede to their request in spite of their sincerity of purpose.
Life of researcher and discoverer is far better than heading a state thought Einstein.
