The Nobel Prize (whether in Physics, Chemistry, or Medicine) is one of the highest honours a scientist can receive. And yet, only eight Indians have ever claimed that prize, despite there being many nominations over the years. And only four of those were for science.

Only CV Raman and Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar have won the Nobel Physics, in 1930 and 1983 respectively. So here are some of the other Indian scientists that have been sadly passed over.
