The important role of scientific outlook in the development of science and society, the scientific approach and temper are or should be, a way of life, a process of thinking, a method of acting and associating with our fellowmen said by Jawaharlal Nehru.

Jawaharlal Nehru was a man who not only appreciated science but also possessed a scientific outlook. Nehru’s attachment to science started long before he became the Prime Minister.

Speaking some ten years before the independence, Nehru had expressed the conviction that Science alone can solve the problem of hunger and poverty, of insanitation and illiteracy of superstition and deadening custom and tradition of vast resources running to waste of a rich country inhabited by starving people.

The national laboratories, the institutes of technology, the atomic energy program, the Tata institute of fundamental research, and many other institutions including universities grew up rapidly in Nehru’s India. It is to those that we must look for the trained scientist and technologists who will guide our country into the increasingly science-dominated future.
