It’s a pay back time for scientists in world’s largest democracy India
Scientists in the most populous state of the world’s largest democracy India have now decided to pay back to the society.
In Uttar Pradesh, a state located in the northern part of India, scientists have come out for a noble cause-to teach science and inculcate scientific temper amongst poor students of rural areas.
Scientists of the National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) and the Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI) located in Uttar Pradesh’s capital Lucknow have taken the initiative for the noble cause.
“The move can be attributed to our social responsibility. Scientists are not aliens. After all, as a responsible citizen of a country they should take such project for the uplift of the poor and downtrodden,” said a scientist involved with the project.
As a part of their novel initiative, the scientists will set up several nodal centres in various rural schools, wherefrom the upcoming project will be launched.
Any poor village student will be able to visit such nodal centres where learning science would be an altogether different experience. Through stories, exhibits and of course movies, students will learn scientific principles.
“The unique learning will also help students to co-relate scientific principle with the events of everyday life,” said another scientist, who is all geared up for his new role.
The scientists feel their initiative will leave a trail that others will follow.
