How would have life been without the invention of the mobile phone? Would communication be as rapid and rampant as it is today? What if light bulb was never invented? Would you have known the universe like you do today had scientists not researched on it? From the humble light bulb to the magnanimous space explorations, scientists have given us numerous gifts of life which we often take for granted. Had it not been for the great minds, life wouldn’t have been this easy and technology this advanced! It is to these inordinate and prodigious talents that we owe much of our existence. This segment commemorates the offerings by great Indian physicists whose contribution is simply immeasurable. CV Raman was a pioneer of light effect. He was the first to discover that light changes its wavelength after traversing from a transparent material. It is for his work on scattering of light that he was bestowed with a Nobel Prize. Homi J Bhabha was yet another noted physicist who played an important role in Quantum Theory. Venkatraman Radhakrishnan was a globally renowned astrophysicist and was famous for designing ultra-light aircraft and sailboats. Other prominent Indian physicists include Jagdish Chandra Bose, Meghnad Saha, SN Bose, S Chandrashekhar, APJ Abdul Kalam and so on.
