Abstract: The paper contains glimpses of rather a brief review of Albert Einstein right from his childhood till his death. The subject matter of the paper is revised version of what the author delivered as a lecture on the 106th birth anniversary of the scientist to the faculty of an eminent institution in Mumbai, India. It is difficult to give only just glimpses of a great scientist like Albert Einstein. But, what I have presented in the paper with large number of diagrams, quotes and statements numbering more than 100 made by Einstein, the reader will find it to be exhaustive making it really a treatise rather than a simple treatment.
