Venki Ramakrishnan celebrated Nobel day with "little drinks party in lab"

      Venki Ramakrishnan, the Indian-American molecular biologist, who shared this year's Chemistry Nobel with two other scientists, celebrated his big day with only a "little drinks party in the lab". At first, the 57-year-old Ramakrishnan couldn't believe he had won the Nobel. The New Scientist quoted him as saying: "Initially, I thought it was a prank. Then, as it dawned on me it wasn't, it was a bit of a shock. Nothing prepares you for it." The Nobel laureate has no 'big plans' for the future and seems content with his bike. He says: "I don't own a car, only a bike, and I have a house that's plenty big enough, and that's enough for me. So no real plans yet." And how did he celebrate his Nobel? "Just a little drinks party in the lab," he replied.
