Need a quick refresher about the Noble laureates from India while on the go? The Rajiv Chowk Metro station is your best bet.

A Nobel Memorial Wall was thrown open to Delhi Metro users at the station on Saturday to honour the laureates and make the youth aware of their contribution to society.

The Wall has portraits of the seven Nobel Laureates from India—Rabindranath Tagore, CV Raman, Hargobind Khorana, Mother Teresa, Subramanyam Chandrasekhar, Amartya Sen and Venkatraman Ramakrishnan with details about their contribution.

The DMRC and the Embassy of Sweden jointly inaugurated the wall today as part of the fifth edition of the Sweden-India Nobel Memorial Week.

E Sreedharan, Managing Director of DMRC, and Ame Kallin, Charge d’Affarires, Embassy of Sweden, jointly unveiled the wall.

“It is a matter of pride for us to host the Nobel Memorial Wall. This Nobel Wall is a unique way to honour the Nobel laureates,” Sreedharan said.

He said a similar wall has also been built at the HUDA City Centre metro station.
