I congratulate Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) and Department of Science and Technology (DST) for organising the event showcasing India's participation in Mega Science projects - Vigyan Samagam. I also congratulate National Council of Science Museums (NCSM), for hosting this exhibition in their venue.
Vigyan Samagam will help in bringing science closer to the society. India's participation in these projects, which are exploring the Universe, from different perspective will help us understand it better. It also allows us to provide exposure to our industries to the cutting edge technologies these projects offer.
I fervently hope that Vigyan Samagam would be an ideal science communication platform not only for scientific organisations, academia and industry but also for policy-makers, media along with members of civil society.
I extend my wholesome support for this wonderful initiative and wish the event all success to the Apex Committee responsible for organising the event, with the support of DAE, DST and NCSM.
