Science is nothing but the progress of mankind through the innovative technology making human life easy. The implication of scientific thought is one the best things ever happened to man!

But how was the ancient India’s approach towards science?

Indian Civilization is one of the oldest civilizations in the world. Since the beginning, we had a strong tradition of science and technology as India was a land of sages and seers, the land of scholars and scientists. Many theories and techniques discovered by the ancient Indians have created and strengthened the fundamentals of modern science and technology. While some of these groundbreaking contributions have been acknowledged, some are still unknown to most.

10th November is accepted as a World Science Day for Peace and Development to spread the awareness and highlight the important role of science in society. It also engages the wider public in debates on emerging scientific issues. It underlines the importance and relevance of science in our daily lives. Various organizations create events for the welfare of the scientific peace among nations and people. Through this, they want to close the gap between science and people.

Various Institutes are established in India for promoting research and technology. The given stamp was issued in honour of Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore) in 2008 having the face value of INR 20. It depicts various well-known personalities.

So go out and spread the awareness about the basic science facts and break the bars of superstition.
