Great Scientists have a questioning mind

Explain next half of the story (fable2)


Now we will start our lesson. At the starting Dr. Kalam tells, that great scientist have restless minds full of questions, they always keep asking why does this happen? Can I make it better? Or what more can this do? This kind of questions always arise in their minds.Let us study the life of a great scientist, who lived in the same era as Einstein but about 5000 kilometers east of Germany. In India C.V.Raman was born at Tiruchirapalli in the Southern part of India in 1888. He was a bright student right from the start and was deeply interested in optical science and acoustics. That’s why he discovered that the mridangam and the tabala produced more melodious sounds than any other percussion instrument. He liked to seek knowledge about everything around him; he had a great fascination of colorful things like flowers, butter flies, or gems.By gaining knowledge, he became scholar of sound and sound related physics. Once a ship sailed from port London to Calcutta. On board was young C.V.Raman who had delivered a lecture on the acoustics of violin in London. He came to the desk of ship, he gazed at the sky. Then many questions popped up in his mind like, Why are both the sea and the sky blue in color? What is the science behind this occurrence? His mind suggested him that the reason could be the scattering of light by water molecules. When he reached Calcutta he immediately went on to conduct experiments to prove his theory. Students, we all knew colour of sky and sea, but it needed a questioning mind with a scientific outlook to find reason behind it. So what did we learn from lesson?
