  • I still remember two life-sized marble statues of two great scientists in the corridor of Manchester Town Hall, which I saw many years ago. One of them is of John Dalton, the founder of modern Chemistry and the Atomic Theory, while the second statue is of James Prescott Joule, the founder of modern Physics and the discoverer of the Law of Conservation of Energy. I consider myself very fortunate to be the student of the University of Manchester, the home of great scientists, Dalton and Joule. And most importantly, I am proud to be the recipient of Dalton Chemical Research Scholarship that enabled me to obtain my Ph.D. I am thankful to The University of Manchester as much as to John Dalton's Trust Foundation, for the greatest educational experience of my life.
