This booklet on some famous scientists of modern India was firstbrought out on the occasion of the Open House for school students at the TataInstitute of Fundamental Research, on 2 November 2003.In this new revised edition, we have added a few more biographiesand included a list of books for further reading.All the material herein is from published sources. Needless to add, thelist is not complete. We have only chosen those scientists who have beeninstrumental in building up the vast and rich scientific culture of modern India.All those chosen here have contributed immensely to science. Almost all havebeen great institution builders. With a few exceptions, all chose to remain anddo their work in India.The compelling factor for the choice of these few, from among themany in the country, is the time and circumstances under which they worked.Their achievements are nothing short of heroic. With no infrastructure andwith little support from the Government of the day, they have built up worldclass scientific institutions and a scientific heritage we can be proud of. Theinstitutions they built still stand proud and are rated highly by the scientificcommunity here and abroad.The purpose of bringing out such a booklet is to inform and, of course,inspire you - the student. While well-researched, comprehensive biographiesof all these scientific personalities are available, they are not always accessibleto the student. We hope that you enjoy reading the booklet, as much as weenjoyed preparing it for you.We sincerely hope that one day your name will figure in such a booklet.Please tell us your impressions of this booklet.Science Popularisation and Public Outreach CommitteeTata Institute of Fundamental ResearchNovember 2004
