C.R. Rao Gallery strives to inspire the younger generation into a path of higher education and basic research for the creation of knowledge to place India on the world map of developed countries in the area of basic research.
The C.R. Rao Gallery is devoted to C.R. Rao’s contributions to statistical education, research, and practice over a period of 70 years, 40 years in India at the Indian Statistical Institute and 30 years in USA working in various universities. The corridor to the gallery exhibits photographs of eminent scientists who have made monumental contributions and opened the doors to new knowledge to remind us that “we can make our lives sublime and departing, leave behind us footprints on the sands of time.”
