Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman, was the first Indian,
The ‘Raman Effect’ is considered very significant in analyzing the molecular structure of chemical compounds.
Also, In 1954 he was awarded with Republic of India’s highest civilian award “Bharat Ratna” award.
we celebrate National Science Day Mark the discovery of the Raman effect by Indian physicist Sir C V Raman on 28 February 1928.
Another objective of celebrating national science day to spread the awareness and importance of science with its application among the people.
