Science and Technology, forms the thrust engine of development for any society. An overwhelmingly large number of over 6 lac villages still await infrastructure facilities and basic amenities. There is a growing disparity between the haves and the have-nots. It is becoming increasingly imperative that inclusive growth becomes a reality and not just a slogan.
We have a gigantic task at hand. Effective intervention through appropriate technologies can play an important role in providing urban amenities in rural areas. These interventions will be able to control the ever-growing problems of urbanization, rural poverty, environmental degradation and unequal growth.
Language plays a very significant role in the ‘lab to land’ concept. In our country, with 23 recognized official national languages including Hindi and English, language plays a key role in science and technology dissemination among the masses.
