  • 7. The theme of the Year 2014 is ….. “ Fostering Scientific Temper ”
  • 8. • The attitude of questioning and reasoning. • It’s approach of Believing, only facts supported by relevant evidences. Where these evidences are derived from observation, Logical interpretation and Conclusion made from experiment or experience which is repeatable under similar condition. • Believing things to the extent of evidence availability. • Scientific Temper is a true path finder & guide for our life. • It’s not only complex scientific methodology but it’s built on solid base of humility, freedom, courage, fearlessness & humanity. • It’s thought process which believes Universe runs on it’s own by natural laws.
  • 9. • Scientific Temper will lead to develop, attitude of questioning and reasoning in every citizen, such attitude will boost countries techno-social development . • Scientific Temper made human understand : •--- There is reason behind every happening. •--- This reason can be understood by Human. •--- The efficiency of approach & availability of right resources will decide time, • completeness & correctness of explanation. •--- This is the surest way to obtain the correct explanation for unknown • happenings.
  • 10. • Central Government Act - Article 51A in The Constitution Of India 1949. FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES ……. (h) to develop the scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of inquiry and reform; • Value education which is core of Indian education system also have Scientific temper as one of its main constituent.
  • 11. Science, Religion, Society & Ethics
  • 12. Science v/s Religion • Sanitation / Cleanliness / Fighting Disease / Health / Longevity. • Food Production & distribution / Communication. • Industrialization / new materials / Technology / Appliances. • Understanding of our presence / Real sense of our presence & values like equality, universal brotherhood, Conservation of Nature. • World peace and safeguarding human civilization – individual and community
  • 13. • Education / Science based Education. • Every individual needs to understand & try to develop this attitude as a constitutional duty. • Think, about Scientific Temper, Speak & implement. The same. • On mass scale following is normally done; --- Science Exhibitions. --- Essay & Elocution on Science, inventions, Scientist etc. --- Poster competition.
  • 14. • Additionally this needs to be done; --- Arranging Reformative talks / Science Lectures (Audio/Visual). --- Forming Science Clubs / HAM groups. --- Establishing more number of Science centers. --- Arranging visits to nearby Science centers & Industries. --- Ensuring availability of Science books viz. science made easy, experimental science. --- Science shows & Demonstrations (Science toys by Dr Arvind Gupta). --- Providing activity kits. -- Astronomy workshop & Sky observation programs along with Que/Ans Session. --- Organizing programs which will bring people closer to NATURE, viz. visits to Nature park, --- Birds/Animal sanctuaries, Snake parks etc. --- Snakes Shows / Birds-Butterflies watching visits. This will not only help to inculcate scientific temperament but will also contribute to eradication of all myths & superstations in general publics mind & will lead to conservation of Nature /mother Earth. •
  • 15. Message on National Science Day - 2014 • Respect & Fulfill Constitutional duty by inculcating Scientific Temper. • Remember Scientific Temper is temper of freeman & surest way to obtain knowledge. • Banish religious rituals from your life as they lead to waste of natural resources, precious time & money too. • Eradicate all Superstition, for benefit of self, society, nation & mankind.
