Research Associate, Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, Kolkata, India

Science has always attracted me since my school days. It is ubiquitous in our daily life. The foundation of human civilisation is based on science. Science has given human beings the power to reason, to protect themselves from natural calamities and lethal diseases and lead a decent, comfortable life. I love science as it inculcates in us the curiosity to know our surroundings better, to seek for the cause behind a lightning, a tsunami, a rainbow, the changing seasons and the list is endless!
