Gravitational waves (GW) were predicted by Einstein a hundred years ago. Observations of systems like the binary pulsar are evidence for their existence. However, the GW have eluded direct detection till now. LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory )-India will play a key role in locating and interpreting the GW sources and their impact on astrophysics, cosmology and fundamental Physics in the future.
