His day of achievement was constituted as National Science Day by the Indian Government in 1986, to be celebrated every year and there is a theme for the nationwide celebration too. The celebrations are held at every academic university related to science, schools and scientific institutions too. to raise awareness, every year a theme is picked up related to the work and advancements in the field of science and technology.
