Creativity in any form can never be caged because imagination has wings that dare to fly in the limitless sky.
National Science Day is celebrated on February 28th every year in order to commemorate the discovery of the “Raman Effect” by Indian Physicist, Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman in 1928. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1930 for his discovery which explains the scattering of light when it enters a liquid. In connection with this day, our respected Prime Minister linked the power of science to the “Atmanirbhar Bharat” campaign and urged to make science more popular across India. He emphasized advancing science with the mantra “Lab to Land”, as the power of science and technology holds a major role in the ‘Self-reliant India campaign’. The objective of celebrating this day, besides marking the contributions made by Dr. C.V. Raman towards Science and Technology, is to inspire youth to follow his path and spread the message about the significance of scientific applications in the daily lives of the people.
