If I Want to become a Scientist what should I do ?

I am currently in class 10. I want to become a scientist in Physics Sector. What should I do after 10th. Some people say that do IIT and AIEEE some say do plain B.Sc and then M.Sc and ultimately P.Hd. But I am a lot confused between these options. Most of my interests are in Astronomy, General Physics and Computers. I am currently in India. Please Help.. Suggest the options available in India! Please make your answer as clear it could be. Thank You !!

      Sep 5 2011: Yeah IITans they are real bunch of people whom I would'nt want to meet in my life time. Workaholics, walking talking references, calculators. A person who is to be an IITan could be easily be found even while they were babies, it will be obvious by just looking at them.. Always thinking something, I wonder what they think so much. I tried and went blank for a whole day.. :)
