  2. 2. Introduction : Pioneering economist John R. Commons used the term "human resource" in his 1893 bookThe Distribution of Wealth. Human resources are the people who make up the workforce of an organization , business sector , or economy. Human capital is sometimes used synonymously with human resources. Likewise , other terms sometimes used include “manpower” , “talent” , “labour” , “personnel” , or simply “ people”. Here I include some of the most eminent persons who shows their talents in different fields, namely Dr.Vikram Sarabhai, Dr.SarvepalliRadhakrishnan,AvulPakirJainulabdeenAbdulKalam(A. P. J. Abdul Kalam),Sir Alexander Fleming .
  3. 3. Resource person: Dr.Vikram Sarabhai
  4. 4. Born: August 12, 1919 Died: December 31,1971 Vikram Sarabhai was one of the greatest scientists of India. He is considered as the Father of the Indian space program. Apart from being a scientist, he was a rare combination of an innovator, industrialist and visionary. Vikram Ambalal Sarabhai was born on August 12, 1919 at Ahmedabad. He was one of eight children of Ambalal and Sarla Devi. After his matriculation, Vikram Sarabhai proceeded to Cambridge for his college education and took the tripos in Natural Sciences from St. John's college in 1940. When World War II began, he returned home and joined as a research scholar under Sir C. V. Raman at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. His interest in solar physics and cosmic ray led him to set up many observation stations around the country. Vikram Sarabhai was instrumental in establishing the Physical Research Laboratory (PRL) in Ahmedabad in November 1947. Vikram Sarabhai did research on the time variations of cosmic rays and concluded that meteorological effects could not entirely affect the observed daily variations of cosmic rays. He visualized a new field of research opening up in solar and interplanetary Physics. The year 1957-1958 was designated as International Geo-physical year (IGY). The Indian program for the IGY had been one of the most significant ventures of Sarabhai. It exposed him to the new vistas of spacescience with the launching in 1957 of Sputnik-I. Subsequently, the Indian National Committee for SpaceResearch was created, of which Vikram Sarabhai became Chairman. He initiated India’s space programme, which today is renowned all over the world. Awards and Achievements  Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Medal – 1962.  Padma Bhushan - 1966.  Appointed as Chairman- Atomic Energy Commission - -May 1966.  Set up the first Rocket Launching station (TERLS) in the country at Thumba near Thiruvananthapuram.  The first rocket launched on - November 21, 1963.  The year 1957-1958 designated as - International Geo-physical year (IGY).

He was Emeritus ProfessorofBacteriology, University of London in 1948. ‘When I woke up just after dawn on September 28, 1928, I certainly didn't plan to revolutionise all medicine by discovering the world's first antibiotic, or bacteria killer. But I supposethat was exactly what I did.’ — Alexander Fleming By 1927, Fleming had been investigating the properties of staphylococci. He identified the mould as being from the Penicillium genus, and, after some months of calling it "mould juice", named the substanceit released penicillin .The laboratory in which Fleming discovered and tested penicillin is preserved as the Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum in St. Mary's Hospital, Paddington. He investigated its positive anti-bacterial effect on many organisms, and noticed that it affected bacteria suchas staphylococciand many other Gram-positive pathogens that cause scarlet fever, pneumonia, meningitis and diphtheria, but not typhoid fever or paratyphoid fever, which are caused by Gram-negative bacteria, for which he was seeking a cure at the time. Fleming published his discovery in 1929, in the British Journal of Experimental Pathology. Antibiotics Fleming's accidental discovery and isolation of penicillin in September 1928 marks the start of modern antibiotics. Before that, several scientists had published or pointed out that mould or penicillium sp. were able to inhibit bacterial growth, and even to cure bacterial infections in animals. His discovery of penicillin had changed the world of modern medicine by introducing the age of useful antibiotics; penicillin has saved, and is still saving, millions of people around the world. Awards and Honours :  Nobel Prize in Medicine -1945.  When 2000 was approaching, at least three large Swedish magazines ranked penicillin as the most important discovery of the millennium.
