Nobel winner V Ramakrishnan refuses to attend Indian Science Congress, calls it a 'circus' Chandigarh: India-born Nobel laureate Venkatraman Ramakrishnan has refused to attend the Indian Science Congress ever in future and called it a 'circus', it was reported on Wednesday. As per a ToI report, the Nobel laureate Venkatraman, who had attended a day long session of a previous Congress, finds it unworthy of attending the event as very little science is discussed in that. ''It was a circus. I find that it's an organization where very little science is discussed. I will never attend a science congress again in my life," he was quoted as saying. Venkatraman Ramakrishnan had, last year, objected to politics and religious ideology being mixed with science. The ongoing annual Science Congress is currently being held in Mysuru. Tamil Nadu-born Venkatraman is a structural biologist at Cambridge University. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 2009. @Scarface @Bornubus @SREEKAR @Srinivas_K @rock127 @guru-dutt @sabari @cobra commando @Vishwarupa Well, he must be saying right. I've watched this Congress many times. We discuss better in our school's quiz than this.
