An introduction for why we are celebrating National Science Day and their importance: On 28 February in the year 1928, the renowned Indian physicist Sir ChandrasekharaVenkata Raman discovered the phenomenon of scattering of light, popular as Raman Effect, at the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science in Kolkata.
Recognizing the significance of the discovery in the field of Physics and the contribution of C.V. Raman, the National Council for Science and Technology Communication (NCSTC) proposed to celebrate 28 February as National Science Day. The Government of India approved the request and therefore since 1986, the country has been celebrating this day as National Science Day.
