Nobel laureate Venkatraman Ramakrishnan has refused to attend the Science congress ever again.
According to him, when he attended science congress he realized very little science was discussed and it was a circus. That’s why he will never attend a science congress again his life. Previously he had also objected to politics and religious ideology being mixed with science. He also alluded to a claim made by a participant at the 2015 Congress in Mumbai about planes having been invented by a sage in the Vedic era and said it is almost impossible.
He is a structural biologist, who won the 2009 Nobel Prize in Chemistry and is currently the president of the Royal Society.
