ABSTRACT:

There are three open questions in physics which seem unrelated: Why is there only matter around us? How neutrinos acquire their tiny masses? Why all the particles in Nature have integer electric charge? It turns out that these open questions may be related. In this talk I will explain the questions, the connection between them and describe the on-going theoretical and experimental efforts in understanding them.
