Today is National Science Day in India honoring the discovery of the Raman effect by Indian physicist Sir Chandrashekhara Venkata Raman, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930. This year’s focus is “Science and Technology for a sustainable future,” a topic with worldwide importance (which we also touched upon in one of our articles).
Nevertheless, we would like to devote today’s infographics entirely to notable scientists of Indian origin who contributed to the advancement of Information Technology with their research and inventions. Even with narrowing down the subject to IT professionals only, the list is inherently incomplete. Our random selection contains such names as Ajay Bhatt, who never intended to make profit with his invention, USB, or some great philanthropists, such as Vinod Dham.
Of course, the list can, and will be continued.
