He has given his presidential remark. He said that there is a Challenge in 21st Century. There is a big question whether human being will survive? There is a need to find the solution. This confluence may find the way and give light to the world.
Good effort has been taken by Vijnana Bharti and it is very important that such dialogues are taking place in eminent institutes like IIT BHU. Vijnana Bharti is working for swadeshi sciences and in the process a vision has been developed that sciences does not mean mathematics, biology, physics, chemistry but as per our Indian view point dance, music, drama etc are also part of this domain of science and technology. With his holistic views Vigyan Bharti is working in collaboration with various premier Institutes in our country.
This dialogue of Vedic and Modern Sciences is one such step in this journey. So I congratulate everyone who have contributed for the success of this program.
