Inspiring Indians - Dr Narinder Singh Kapany

The world around us has seen technological advancements at an exponential rate. The information has become accessible at any given time. This all has become possible only because of the fibre-optic technology.   

Now we need to thank Dr Narinder Singh Kapany, an Indian-born American physicist for inventing this remarkable technology. Dr Kapany first demonstrated his invention in 1954, wherein he showcased that light can travel in bent glass fibers. It is because of his groundbreaking work that the people around the globe can reap the benefits of high-speed communication and medical procedures such as endoscopy and laser surgeries. 

Today, even at the age of 85, Dr Kapany continues to inspire us with his undying quest for inventing an even better technology.
