National Science Day - 2012

Today on February 29, 2012 Physics Department is celebrating National Science Day - 2012.
The celebration is associated with the discovery of Raman Effect by Sir C.V. Raman in the first half of twentieth century. Today Professor Naresh Dadhich and Professor M.Sami of Center for Theoretical Physics of Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi delivered lectures as part of these celebrations. Many academics gathered to listen to them and the the 2012 issue of the Physics Bulletin published by the Department of Physics was released by the Vice Chancellor Professor Sibghatullah Faruqi. Most exciting thing was that both of the external speakers were crowded for long time by the students after the lectures. More interestingly some students, perhaps they were from the Zakir Husain College of Engineering and Technology, asked questions during  the lecture itself.

For a mature society scientific discourse is a way of life and it was very heart warming to see this in action.
