2009 Nobel Prize in chemistry

STOCKHOLM - Americans Venkatraman Ramakrishnan and Thomas Steitz and Israeli Ada Yonath won the 2009 Nobel Prize in chemistry on Wednesday for mapping ribosomes, the protein-producing factories within cells, at the atomic level.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said their work has been fundamental to the scientific understanding of life and has helped researchers develop antibiotic cures for various diseases.


As the name suggests...Venkatraman Ramakrishnan is an Indian but it needed America to make him shine....and also to claim his success...

Indians have the brains, the will and determination but yet the factor for success is missing..

It is at once a proud moment that a person of Indian origin has won it and a sobering one that Indians cannot do in India what they do elsewhere.

Somewhere we have missed the plot.

Only if we could provide our scientists the facilities and the infrastructure which other countries provide.
Cheers to Indian scientists.

1. To reduce the brain drain we need to provide them a better platform.

2. Indian constitution must allow dual citizenship.

Point one is a must.

Point two is necessary for many reasons but will not help Indians get Nobel Prize in India.
