Indian-American Venkatraman Ramakrishnan has made us proud by winning the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his pioneering work on ribosome, a cellular machine that makes proteins.

57-year-old Ramakrishnan is the ninth Indian or of Indian origin to win the prestigious award.

Born in 1952 in the temple town of Chidambaram in Tamil Nadu, Ramakrishnan shares the Nobel prize with Thomas E Steitz (US) and Ada E Yonath (Israel).
