Generally Nobel laureates are known and celebrated because of the discoveries for which prizes are awarded. Many of them possess unknown facets which are to be celebrated with equal recognition but go unreported because the award winning discovery overshadows other facets of the individual. Nobel prizes were awarded first time for achievements during the year 1901. During the first part of 20th century most of the individuals awarded were medical graduates and several among them were practicing doctors. While looking at the winners, few of them achieved remarkable landmarks in other fields but these “facets” were not known widely. Sir Frederick Grant Banting, Co discoverer of Insulin, researched in Aviation and Diving Medicines along with the gifted team of scientists and results when applied saved thousands of lives of flight crew. He was also the youngest to be awarded the prize and achieved it in a span of 3 years since commencement of research.
