    Govindjee (one name only), who himself is an institution, has been recognized and honored by many in the past for he is a true ambassador of "Photosynthesis Research" to the World. He has been called "Mr. Photosynthesis", and compared to the Great Wall of China. To us in TA (TM) eboA, he has been a great research collaborator in our understanding of chlorophyll a fluorescence in algae and in cyanobacteria, and more than that a friend of the Czech "Photosynthesis" group, from the time of Ivan etlik (1928-2009) and of Zdenk estak (1932-2008). Govindjee's 80th (really 81st) birthday was celebrated by the Institute of Microbiology, Laboratory of Photosynthesis, by toasting him with an appropriate drink of a suspension of green algae grown at the institute itself. After my presentation, on October 23, 2013, of Govindjee's contributions to photosynthesis, and his intimate association with the photosynthetikers (in Jack Myers's words) of the Czech Republic, Govindjee gave us his story of how he began research in photosynthesis in the late 1950s. This was followed by a talk on October 25 by him on "Photosynthesis: Stories of the Past." Everyone enjoyed his animated talk-it was full of life and enjoyment. Here, I present a brief pictorial essay on Govindjee at his 80th (really 81st) birthday in TA (TM) eboA during October 23-25, 2013.
