"The essence of science is independent thinking, hard work and not equipment."

This week's quote is by the great Indian physicist who undertook ground breaking research in the field of light scattering -  Dr. CV Raman.

This quote came after winning the Nobel Prize in 1930 when he told the world that he hardly spent 200 Rupees (less than AUD $4) on his equipment.

It is a common belief that one requires valuable tools and equipments to get results but CV Raman proved  innovation backed by hard work is the essence of success. This is not limited to science and can be applied to developments in all fields.

Quote - "The essence of science is independent thinking, hard work and not equipment." - Dr. CV Raman

Who was Dr. CV Raman?

Dr. CV Raman or Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman was an Indian physicist who discovered that when light traverses a transparent material, some of the deflected light change wavelength and amplitude.

This phenomenon was a new type of scattering of light and was subsequently known as the Raman effect i.e Raman scattering. The day is celebrated by the Government of India as the National Science Day every year.

He won the 1930 Nobel Prize in Physics and became the first Asian to receive a Nobel Prize in any branch of Science.  

In 1954, the Government of India honoured him with the first Bharat Ratna, its highest civilian award.
