Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman (1888 -1970)Sir CV Raman was one of the brilliant scientists of India who won the Nobel Prize in 1930 for his discovery of the ‘Raman Effect.’ (The discovery that monochromatic light ray in the incident beam can be split up into a number of components with wave length smaller or greaterthan that of the incident ray).In 1934, he founded the Indian Academy ofSciences and in 1948, the Raman Research Institute.In addition to being a great scientist, CV Ramanwas a superb speaker. The following speech delivered at the convocation ceremony of theAgra University is a good example of his eloquence.Born at Thiruvanaikkaval in Tamil Nadu, Ramanstudied at Presidency College, Madras. Later, heserved as Professor of Physics at CalcuttaUniversity. C.V. Raman won the Nobel Prize for an important research in the field of optics(light). Raman had found that diffused light contained rays of other wavelengths-what isnow popularly known as Raman Effect. His theory explains why the frequency of lightpassing through a transparent medium changes.
