105th Indian Science Congress: Pride of India Expo
As Vice Chancellor of one of the prestigious universities in India, I extend a warm welcome to all the delegates, participants, sponsors and exhibitors to the 105th Session of the Indian Science Congress at Manipur University.
The theme chosen for this session of the Indian Science Congress Reaching the Unreached through Science and Technology emphasizes the value of taking science to each and every citizen of India. India has made unprecedented advances in myriad branches of Science and has carved its niche as an upcoming Science hotspot with special presence in the fields of space research, traditional and alternative medicines, computer science, and basic sciences. We all must join hands to single-mindedly effort together towards the universal goal of human development.
With thousands of intelligent minds congregating at the Science Congress to share and debate ideas, I solicit your support and participation in the Pride of India Expo, a mega science exhibition concurrent to 105th Indian Science Congress and make Indian Science Congress a grand success.
Prof. Adya Prasad Pandey
Vice Chancellor, Manipur University
