Indians are known as the best minds on the earth. For the last century or so the Indians have earned the respect of the world in every department of the world, be it science or sports, technology or innovation.
India has also produced some the best scientists in the world who have done a great deal of work and have achieved the top-level in their careers. The Indian scientists have made sure that the country should become in every field which measures the development of a nation globally.
Here are the names of some of the best scientists that India has produced over the time along with the significance of their work and achievements.
Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman (C.V. Raman)
C.V. Raman the noble prize winner scientist of 1930 because of its outstanding work in physics. Raman is one of the most famous Indian scientists of the world and his work on light scattering, which won him the noble prize, is still known as the most significant discovery of all time.
Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
He is better known as the missile man of India. His work has made sure that India doesn’t fall behind in the defense sector, which is a need of today’s ambitious world.
Dr. Kalam also served as the 11th ‘President of India’ from the year 2002 to 2007.

Homi Jehangir Bhabha
Only a few countries in the world have the nuclear power and India is surely one of them. Dr. Bhabha is known as the chief engineer to chalk out the plan of India’s success in the field of nuclear energy program.
Dr. Bhabha has done a great deal of work and put an enormous amount of work to get the India feature in the list of the countries which hold the nuclear power of their own.
Jagadish Chandra Bose
The well known scientist from India is known for his work on plans and metals. He is the first in the world to claim and to prove that even the plants and metal have feelings like humans.
He was very well praised for this work which leads to the great inventions in the plant science. He also invented the device which can record the pulse of plants.
Har Gobind Khorana
He is now an American citizen but was born in India in the year 1922. He is also a noble prize winner of the year 1968 for his outstanding work in the genetic code.
He was also the first person to segregate the DNA parts and chains of nucleotides. Hr Gobind Khorana currently lives in the U.S.A. and is providing his services in the chemistry department of MIT University.
He is known as one of the greatest mathematician ever produced in the history. He was a very bright student in the mathematics and solved the many problems of partial sums and trigonometry.
He is most acknowledged for his work on the summands of the partial integers. He has many papers published on the various topics of mathematics like algebra, trigonometry, integer functions and others which lead other scientists to do calculate more results and simplify the complex mathematics problems.
Dr. Sarabhai is known to us as the father of the Indian Space program. It was his efforts that India launched its first satellite and become one of the rare countries of the world to achieve that feat.
Dr. Sarabhai was the chairman of the Indian Space Committee and his outstanding work in the cosmic ray and space led us to a bright future in which we all are currently living in.
He is known as the Birdman of India because of his phenomenal work in the field of ornithology. Salim Ali spent almost his entire life in studying the birds and letting the world know about it.

Satyendra Nath Bose
Dr. Bose is the most famous for his work on the quantum physics along side with Albert Einstein and the duo proposed the theory named as the Bose-Einstein theory of the atomic particles.
Dr. Bose had also been honored by naming a subatomic particle after him known as the ‘Boson’. This Boson particle is currently getting used in the big bang experiment which is on its way to know the origin of the universe.
He was such an outstanding master of his subject that even before completing his doctorate he became the professor in Dhaka University and on the recommendation of legendary scientist Albert Einstein.
He had also become the member of the Royal Society, London and this is the biggest honor could be given to any scientist for his work in England.
The Indian scientists are absolutely remarkable when it comes to their subject of interest and the above names have justified the fact the no field of science has left untouched by them.
The Indians masterminds worked in every area like space, quantum physics, nuclear, medicine, plants, birds, light, defense and much more. There are countless more scientists who could feature in the above list, but the above are those who founded the base of India in the discovery and scientism.
It’s their sheer effort only that the India is almost independent in every field of the science and known as one of the intelligent country to the rest of the world.
