It’s time to remember those Indians who made the country proud by winning the Nobel prize.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), in collaboration with the Embassy of Sweden, is creating ‘The Nobel Memorial Wall’ at the Huda City Centre Metro station here and Rajiv chowk Metro station in New Delhi. The wall will be inaugurated on Saturday and will remain for public display till October 22.
The makeshift wall, being created during the Sweden-India Nobel Memorial Week 2011, will display the photographs of the seven Indians who have won the prestigious award.
Besides the portraits of all seven Nobel laureates — Rabindranath Tagore, Dr CV Raman, Dr Har Gobind Khurana, Mother Teresa, Subramanyan Chandrashekhar, Amartya Sen and Venkatraman Ramakrishnan — the wall will showcase their details like citation, history, achievements, efforts and contribution to society.
Anuj Dyal, chief PRO of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, said, “People can have a look at the wall at two Metro stations. We aim to make people aware about the Nobel laureates from India.”
Dr Ashok Diwakar, principal of Government College for Women, said, “Most of us don’t know that seven of our countrymen bagged the most prestigious award of the world. It’s a great way to know about them.”
