India celebrates National Science Day or Rashtriya Vigyan Diwas (राष्ट्रीय विज्ञान दिवस) ever year on 28th February to commemorate the discovery of Raman effect by Indian physicist Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman on 28 February 1928.
Sir C.V Raman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930.
Born on 7th November 1888, Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Rāman was an Indian physicist whose work was influential in the growth of science in India.
He was the recipient of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1930 for the discovery that when light traverses a transparent material, some of the light that is deflected changes in wavelength. This phenomenon is now called Raman scattering and is the result of the Raman Effect.
