Neutrinos are one of the fundamental particles. They are all around us, yet they remain elusive since they hardly interact with matter. In this talk I will discuss some of the unique properties of neutrinos which compel us to think beyond our standard ideas of fundamental particles and their interactions and open a new window towards a deeper understanding of nature.
