Nuclear Energy has been successfully applied for power production and now India will not have to look abroad for its experts but will find them ready at hand.

Young scientists have a great role to play when it comes to the importance of Nuclear Energy. Himachal Pradesh now takes the lead in contributing to the country’s nuclear progress.

Adhiraj Singh Thakur from Akal Academy, Baru Sahib, Himachal Pradesh is just a step away from becoming his state’s first nuclear scientist.

Among the 15610 candidates who took the entrance test of Bhabha Atomic research center(BARC), 50 qualified with the required results. Adhiraj Singh Thakur ranked 9 among these candidates. The selected candidates will now have to clear the written examinations and interview in Jan 2019 at Mumbai.

Adhiraj pursued his schooling from Akal Academy, Baru Sahib. An introvert student, Adhiraj performed brilliantly in his school exams and was always the favourite of his teachers. He scored spectacularly in his XII boards.

Homi Jehangir Bhabha known as the “father of Indian nuclear program”, was an Indian nuclear physicist who made important contributions to quantum theory and cosmic radiation.

He was the first Chairman of The Atomic Energy Commission of India. He was the founding director of Bhabha Atomic Research Center. Dr. Bhabha established the BARC Training School to cater to the manpower needs of the expanding atomic energy research and development program.

In his interview with Dainik Bhaskar, Adhiraj said that after being selected at BARC, he won’t leave any stone unturned in serving his country. He has always had a keen interest in developing new innovations in their field of science and research.

India has been in the forefront when it comes to advancement in nuclear technologies owing to the achievements of our scientists and pioneers who sowed the seeds of scientific temper in the country.
