Arvind Sinha, secretary Jamshedpur Chapter of NASI said, we feel that a sustainable inclusive growth may be initiated and promoted by taking science and technology at the door step of common people.
It may be achieved by not only showing them attractive inventions and facilities of science and technology available in the state, but create a spark in their minds that it is Science and Technology, which is their best friend to solve their day to day problems ranging from clean drinking water, sanitation, health, employment and entrepreneurship.
With this mission we have initiated Jharkhand State Chapter and we have found our road map in our major project �Vigyan Diwali in Jharkhand� (will elaborate on 25th), we have also realized that faster growth requires parallel process…that�s why on one hand where we are focussing on the generation in the age group of 12-16 years under Vigyan Diwali, we are looking forward to empower contemporary science researchers and potential researchers of the state by providing them the best possible skill development opportunities and keep them motivating through providing them a platform to interact the achievers in their field. Drawing parallel with Gandhian Philosophy.
