Science is the foundation for all researches: Prof. Ashok Mishra

Mysuru, February 28, 2022 ( “There are solutions to a few of our problems in science. Hence, the government should give prominence for research activities from degree and postgraduation levels itself,” observed Prof. Ashok Mishra of the Indian Science Institute.
He participated in a seminar organized at the Crawford hall in Mysuru, from the University of Mysore, on the occasion of the National Science Day. In his address, he said, “India is a developing country. Science is the foundation for all research. Science creates the need for new technology and triggers new thoughts. Though New Zealand is a small country, it produces thousands of scientists every year. Hence, the government should give more prominence to the development of science in our country. The number of Ph.D. candidates should increase. Efforts should be made to allow bidding for research-based activities through agencies,” he advised.
In his address, Prof. G. Hemanth Kumar, Vice-Chancellor, University of Mysore, informed that National Science Day is celebrated across the country every year on February 28. “On this day, Indian Physicist Sir C.V. Raman announced the discovery of the ‘Raman Effect’ for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1930. In 1986, the Government of India designated 28 February as National Science Day,” he added.
Prof. R. Shivappa, Registrar (Exams), University of Mysore. Prof. A.P. Jnanprakash and others were present.
