Many Indian scientists from the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Kolkata, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, Harishchandra Research Institute, Allahabad and Institute of Physics, Bhubaneswar, were involved in the world's most ambitious experiment.

"India is like a historic father of the project," said Paolo Giubellino, CERN spokesperson.

The Higgs boson is partly named after Indian scientist Satyendra Nath Bose, who worked with Albert Einstein in the 1920s and made discoveries that led to the latter getting the Nobel Prize in particle physics.
