    February 28, we celebrate as National Science Day.

    Our Nation celebrate 28th February as the National Since Day, every year, since 1928. It is the day on which our Nobel Laureate Dr. C.V. Raman brought out his theory, generally referred as 'Raman effect. The decision to celebrate the day every year was to keep the scientific temper among the people.
    But this celebration is generally limited to a talk or seminar in educational institutions or science organizations. Beyond that no effort is seen in popularizing science or creating scientific temper among people.
    This celebration must aim at popularising science and scientific outlook among all the people. It must aim at developing a sense of optimism among all. It must instill in them a sense of self confidence and help rebuilding a changed world with a better tomorrow.
    The celebration of the day must try to expose and oppose the abuse of scientific knowledge detrimental to the interests of the majority. With equal importance it must expose and oppose the abuse of environment.
    Those who are engaged in scientific activities must work to transform lab technologies to mass technologies. Through these initiatives we must prove that science is not a tool for destruction but a force for social and economic uplifting or a social revolution.

    I thank the author for sharing this information.

    Science day is an opportunity for schools, colleges and institutions to organise science related functions like quiz, lectures, exhibitions etc to make people aware about the science and it's application.

    In my opinion they should call the parents also during such functions as it gives a good platform for interaction between the parents and school staff.

    Knowledge is power.

    It is a good thing that we are observing the National Science day on a particular day and it gives all the people opportunity to have activities related to understanding or acknowledging the scientific progress and development in our country.

    Generally scientific activities are confined to the research institutions and general public is not getting any exposure of those things.

    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

    Congratulations to all on the occasion of National Science Day. Scientists like Sir C V Raman brought laurels to the country by their extraordinary work and made us proud. We should remember them for their excellent work.
    The Science these days is getting a back seat. No one is really studying science and using it as a tool to bring the society up. The students who are pursuing their studies in Science stream should be encouraged so that more people will get attracted. As on today, the trend is that only student who couldn't secure a seat in Engineering or MBBS are trying to join in Science graduation. The government should encourage students who are studying science.
    The fruits of scientific research should reach the public through the application of these findings in uplifting the lives the people

    always confident

    The author has rightly pointed out that science has to be effectively used in a way for social upliftment. Merely observing a day by just thinking of the contribution of a few great scientists or inventions will not serve many purposes. People need to ask questions, they need to find out the reasons behind a particular phenomenon. This inquisitiveness will enable the person to go deeper inside a topic and carry out research to clarify things.

    Science has many branches and students can take up any of them according to their interests. Still, there are superstitions prevailing in different sections of society and people should be made aware of those things. Here, students have a great role to play and with the active support of their teachers and elders, they can carry the message forward to eradicate unscientific practices.
