India's Debt to Faraday

Nature volume 128, pages 362364 (29 August 1931) | Download Citation



THE idea of a life dedicated and consecrated to the service of humanity and involving the renunciation of personal advantages makes a powerful appeal to the mind of India. It is doubtful if, amongst men of science, a finer example of such a life could be discovered than that of Michael Faraday. His ideas and discoveries have benefited all mankind, and, in common with the rest of the world, India owes him a debt which can never be repaid. I consider it a great privilege to be allowed, on behalf of India, to offer my humble tribute of homage to the immortal soul of Faraday.
