Portrait of Rajeev Kumar JainAbstract: This talk will provide a brief introduction to modern cosmology which is based on the Big Bang theory. Over the last few decades, various observations have provided enormous support for the Big Bang theory. I shall start by discussing the cosmological principle which is based on the homogeneity and isotropy of the universe. I shall then discuss the different epochs during the evolution of the universe and provide some details of physics during these epochs. At the end, I will quickly comment on the different types of research done in the broad area of cosmology.
