A truth about Father of Electricity

Michael Faraday was born in 1791, in London. At the age of 13 he started work as a bookbinder and in 1812 copied out and bound some lectures he had attended and sent them to the lecturer, the chemist Sir Humphry Davy, together with a letter asking for a job. The next year he was taken on a an assistant.

Faraday's discoveries, achieved through a combination of brilliant intuition and painstaking research, made possible the modern electricity industry. He neither sought nor accepted honours, and in 1867 died 'plain Mr. Faraday', as he wished.
