Indian Science Congress

Indian Science Congress is the annual juggernaut of Indian science. These people are very nice in that they maintain the list of their Sectional Heads from oldest times. Some interesting names from the Physics Section, some of them having AMU connection, are as follows. (For few years Physics Section was merged with Mathematics.)
1915 : C.V.Raman
1918: Wali Mohammad
1942: R.K.Asundi
1945: R.C.Majumdar
1954: P.S.Gill
1955: R.K.Asundi

Of course the world did not come to an end in mid fifties.
