Nurturing Thursday : Don’t doubt yourself

What would be better than shaing this piece of information today:

It’s Nobel Laureate C V Raman’s 131st birth anniversary today. He had unshakeable faith in his work and abilities. Though he was elected to the Royal Society, a great honour in those days, when he was just 36, he didn’t consider it a big deal at all! He knew he would win a Nobel Prize after discovering the Raman Effect in Feb 1928. After missing out in 1928 & 1929, he was so confident of winning in 1930 that he he purchased ocean liner tickets to attend the ceremony 5 months in advance, before they even told him he had won.
