Imphal, May 11: Under the theme of ‘More crop, more drop’, the annual Science Meet, 2007 which would go on for five days began from today at Khuman Lampak Main Stadium here. The Science Meet is being organised by Manipur Science and Technology Council in collaboration with other organisations like Science Teachers’ Forum, Manipur (STFM); Manipur Association for the Promotion of Science (MAPS), Manipur Science Communicators’ Association (MASACA) and Generation De New Image (GENIM) and is being sponsored by National Council for Science and Technology Communication, Government of India. The main objective of the meet is to promote scientific temperament among the people. Inaugurating the meet as chief guest, Science and Technology Minister Md Allauddin Khan observed that science is indispensable to human development and civilisation and it has been there even before it is known by the term science. Without science and technology, human civilisation can survived and all the things being used by the people every day are products of science and technology.

So to compete in the race of development with other developed countries, we need to develop Science and Technology, he said. Chairman of Manipur Renewable Energy Development Agency PL Thanga, IAS and Scientist of Department of Science and Technology, GoI, New Delhi Dr Asit Chakrabati were respectively president and guest of honour of the inaugural function. In his presidential address, PL Thanga noted that of all the revolutions that brought changes to the world, science and technological revolution has the greatest impact.

Without the technological revolution, there can be no developed country in the world.

However, the importance of science and technological development seems to be not aware in the North eastern States including Manipur, he observed. He pointed out that Manipur has lot of resources, but these are yet to be exploited technologically and cited the example of suitability of the soil for plantation of Orange in the hill areas but not able to reap the fruit due to lack of technological knowledge on its proper cultivation. Along with the Science modal exhibition of the students coming from various schools of Manipur, interesting programmes like the Poster & Photo exhibition, IT shows, Model Competition, Science Explaining miracles, puppet show, face to face with distinguished scientists, scientific film shows, science drama, Tara Mandal (Planetarium), etc would be organised over the next five days of the Science Meet. Science talk: As a part of the ongoing Science Meet 2007 at Khuman Lampak Main Stadium, a direct interaction programme with distinguished scientists will be organised by the Manipur Association for the Promotion of Science (MAPS) at 11:30 am tomorrow, informed a MAPS release. During the programme, HOD, Chemistry MU Prof N Rajmuhon will talk on ‘Turning Points’ and BARC scientist Dr N Raghumani on ‘Nanotechnology and Its Implications’, it added.
