Abstract:Observations of high red shift supernovae indicate that the Universe is accelerating. Existence of Big-bang singularity is one of the basic failures of general theory of relativity. In this letter we show that within the framework of Lyra geometry, the space-time of the Universe is not only free of Big-bang singularity but also exhibits acceleration during its evolution.
