Description

This is the true story of a giant in the history of Indian science who dedicated his life to the development of a scientific research in India.

On a cruise from England to India, an Indian scientist wondered how on a dull and grey day, the waters of the Mediterranean Sea could be so blue. It was this simple question that gave birth to the famous Raman Effect for which C V Raman won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930.

Working with little money, using primitive instruments in a makeshift, laboratory, Raman's discovery is considered to be one of the four major discoveries in experimental physics of the early twentieth century that provided strong evidence in favor of the Quantum Theory.

This is the true story of a giant in the history of Indian science who dedicated his life to the development of a scientific research in India.
