National Science Day is celebrated in India to mark the discovery of the Raman effect by Sir C. V. Raman.
Sir Chandrashekara Venkata Raman was an Indian physicist known for his work in the field of light scattering. Using a spectrograph that he developed he and his student K.S Krishnan discovered that when light traverses a transparent material the deflected light changes its wavelength and frequency. This phenomenon was termed as Raman effect or Raman scattering. Raman received a Nobel prize in 1930 for this discovery and was the first Asian to receive a Nobel prize in any branch of science.
