India performed successful test firing of the Trishul missile on the same day. This was a matter of pride for all the citizens of India. The day also praises the significance of Science in our day to day lives. Students learnt and honoured the contribution of great scientists like A P J Abdul Kalam, C V Raman and Homi Bhabha.
