C.V. RAMAN was the first Asian scientist to win the Nobel Prize in physics in 1930 for his discovery ‘The Raman Effect`. Born in 1888 in Tiruvanaikkaval in South India in a family of modest background, he developed a strong passion for science quite early in his life. After completing his studies he joined the Government Service under British rule as an Assistant Accountant General in Calcutta. However, seizing upon an opportunity, he gave up his lucrative Government job to pursue research in Science. For nearly six decades, Raman relentlessly worked on a variety of subjects-from acoustics of musical instruments to the pioneering study of light scattering, color, vision, and crystals. He was responsible for the establishment of many institutions to foster the spirit of science and for encouraging several outstanding students in the study of science. The Raman Effect continues to find applications in several fields of science -from biology to nanotechnology. Raman died in 1970 at the age of 82.

This biographical documentary is a tribute to the extraordinary life and career of C.V.Raman.
