Clip tweeted by @NobelPrize.
Nobel laureate Indian physicist Sir CV Raman is known for his great contributions in the study of the physical process of light scattering and discovery of the Raman effect.
He was born on November 7, 1888. In order to honour his memory, the official Twitter handle of the Nobel Prize shared a soundless clip of Sir Raman from 1930. The clip is from the time he had gone to Stockholm, Sweden to receive the Nobel prize award.
In the clip, a woman is sitting with Sir Raman while a man is standing behind them. Sir Raman can be seen speaking to the man in the clip. The duration of this clip is just 25 seconds and it has been taken from Sveriges Television — the national public television broadcaster of Sweden.
