AHMEDABAD: Accomplishments of Indian scientists during the last century were not “celebrated” adequately, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said while virtually inaugurating a Centre-State Science Conclave at Gujarat Science City.
Naming Indian scientists like CV Raman, Jagdish Chandra Bose, Satyendra Nath Bose, Meghnad Saha and S Chandrasekhar who came up with innovations in the last century, Modi said, “We did not celebrate the work of our scientists as much as it should have been done. Due to this, a large part of our society remained indifferent to science.”
“When we celebrate the achievements of our scientists, science becomes a natural part of our society. It becomes part of the culture. The celebration of all small and big achievements of Indian scientists will create a leaning towards science and will help us in this Amrit Kal,” he added. The Prime Minister urged citizens to celebrate the achievements of the scientists of the country with great enthusiasm.
