IISF-2021 Curtain Raiser inaugurated

The new generation must be acquainted with the glorious, successful and inspiring history of Indian science. I believe that Vigyan Mahotsav will be a medium for this. IISF is a festival, not a science conference or symposium. This was stated by the Minister of Science & Technology and MSME Shri Omprakash Sakhlecha at the Curtain Raiser Programme of India International Science Festival (IISF) 2021 at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi on Tuesday. He said that the next Science Festival should be considered in the middle of the country, because so far the festival has not been held in Madhya Pradesh.

Shri Jayant Sahasrabuddhe, National Organising Secretary of Vigyan Bharati and a member of the Festival Organizing Committee, said that science is the identity of India, which the British rulers tried to raze before independence. He said that the Science Festival is for every citizen of India, in which students to general public can participate. This time the festival will be on both virtual and live mode. Shri Sahastrabuddhe said that science has been a part of the life of the people of India. Glimpses of science are visible in Indian festivals and in public life. He said that the contribution of Indian scientists will also be highlighted in the festival on the occasion of 75 years of independence.

Director General of M.P. Council of Science and Technology Dr. Anil Kothari said that this is the biggest science festival in Asia. We want that the students and general public of Madhya Pradesh should get information about science through this festival. He said that there are five pillars of science festival. In ‘Freedom Struggle’, Indian scientists associated with the freedom struggle will be introduced. In ‘Ideas at Seventy Five’, new ideas have been invited from the youth. The achievements of 75 years will be projected in ‘Achievements at Seventy Five’. Action at Seventy Five will have 75 action plans for New India. Resolve at Seventy Five will have 75 resolutions for Atmanirbhar Bharat.

Dr. Avnish Kumar Shrivastava, Director, CSIR-AMPRI said that science cannot be limited to laboratories. He said that science has played an important role in economic development and creation of employment opportunities. Chairman of Madhya Pradesh Private University Regulatory Commission, Dr. Bharat Sharan Singh said that such an event should have been started in 1947. Vigyan Mahotsav will be a platform for exchange of ideas along with providing joy and healthy entertainment. He said that rocket science is a gift of India.
