Ravi VedulaIn human thermodynamics, Ravi Vedula (1988-) is an Indian mechanical engineer noted for []

Overview
In 2012, Vedula, made a short film “A Strange Thing Called Love”, coproduced with Indian chemical engineer Vamshi Regalla, turned Journal of Human Thermodynamics article “A Strange Thing Called Love: in the View of Chemical Thermodynamics”, wherein they outline their take on the chemical thermodynamics of love, employing Thims-Pati style reaction mechanisms: [1]

A + B → A≡B (human chemical bond formation) (Libb Thims, 2003)
A + B → AB (Surya Pati, 2009)

to explain human bonding as a reaction.

In synopsis origin of their video-turned-article, they comment:

“A video was made by the authors on the same concept with the title as “A strange thing called love”. The plot of this video is that a man falls in love with nine girls and that day comes when he is supposed to make a decision on choosing ‘the one’. Surprisingly in the early 1800s, Johann Goethe published a book named Elective Affinities based on a similar concept of love and marriage relations among two couples. It is a pure coincidence and the current authors actually didn’t know about it until they started preparing this article.”

This is what is called, categorically, as the love thought experiment.

Education
Vedula completed his BS in 2009 in India, his ME in 2011 at Old Dominion University, Virginia, in mechanical engineering, and as of 2012 is pursuing a PhD in mechanical engineering at Michigan State University. Vedula’s philosophical motto is: “always looking to explore what is there within self.”
