    It was good, but it can be better if your team will provide the name below their photos, the subtitle and at the end of the video lecture an individual list of the prize winners for the different streams. And it will be awesome if you can provide us(aspirants) some tricks(if it's possible) to remember it.
    Thank you

    If i am not wrong, nobel prize is given in six fields if we include economics but you said five. U put literature or peace in one category but they are two different fields in which nobels are given.
