National Science Day (NSD) is celebrated all over India with great zeal and fervor on 28th February every year to remember the great Indian physicist Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman for his discovery of ‘The Raman Effect’ in the year 1928. On this day he made the path breaking discovery regarding scattering of light, the phenomenon which is called the “Raman Effect”. For this great work, he was awarded Nobel Prize in Physics in the year 1930. Sir Raman is remembered as a person of huge source of motivation and inspiration by all Indians especially the science students and scientists. The basic objective of National Science Day is to spread the message and importance of science and its applications amongst the people, especially school and college students. This is critical in accelerating the pace of development in the country. Even in the 21st century despite several significant scientific achievements and technological milestones, a section of our society is still guided by blind faith, superstition and beliefs, which is reflected in the quality of decision making on day to day issues of life. Celebration of National Science Day also attempts at generating scientific temper among citizens. Science has contributed a great deal in the human welfare. Like previous years, this year also HIMCOSTE celebrated National Science Day. Declamation contest for University and College students, Science Quiz and Poster Making competitions for school students will organize for school students at District and State level. The State level competitions organize on 27th Feb, 2019 at Govt. Senior Secondary School (Girls) Portmore, Shimla.
