The era of gravitational wave astronomy has begun with the spectacular observation of gravitational waves by two LIGO detectors in the year 2015. By now, the interferometric gravitational wave detector network with LIGO and Virgo detectors have observed a dozen black hole binary merger events. With these observations, the gravitational wave scientists are not only unraveling mysteries of the black holes but also about our Universe. In addition, a new set of questions are being posed which will be answered with new observations. In this talk, I will give you a glimpse in to this new era of gravitational wave astrophysics with black holes.
