The number of days devoted to science and technology is low in our calendars, which are busy between 100 days. Internationally, the United Nations has recognized such a few days. To our country’s level, we have two major opportunities to celebrate science and technology – National Science Day in February, and National Technology Day in May.
Sir c. V. National Science Day is celebrated to commemorate the day in which the Ramans informed the world of their discoveries known as the ‘Raman effect’. Today is the day that National Technology Day is being remembered – Dr. A nuclear test named ‘Operation Shakti’ led by APJ Abdul Kalam was held in Pokhran, Rajasthan on the same day. It was after the success of the test that the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee declared that we were part of the nuclear-armed countries.
It is rare that we can boast of a historic event in our lifetime and have the opportunity to celebrate that day as a national day. Given such a rare opportunity, National Technology Day is an opportunity to learn more about some of India’s achievements in this field and wish for more.
ISRO is the first name that reminds us of India’s achievements in the field of technology. ಸಂಶೋಧ Space Research Activities launched under the ‘Indian National Committee for Space Research’ (INCOSPAR), led by the ‘Indian Space Research Organization’ (ISRO), has placed India in the forefront of the field. ISRO now operates one of the largest networks of communications and telecommunications satellites, and is recognized as one of the world’s six largest space agencies.
Another field that is often reminiscent of India and technology is information technology. What we do not know is that our country is named in Information Technology Services (Services). But before that, there was a lot of computer construction work going on in our country in the 7- 7 decades. Homi Jahangir Bhabha, Father of Indian Nuclear Program and Professor of Indian Nuclear Science. Specialists like Prasanna Chandra Mahalanobis are leading this project. As a result, sixty years of TIFRAC, India’s first indigenously built digital computer, has already been completed at Mumbai’s Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR)
The name TIFRAC is the abbreviation of the TIFR Automatic Calculator. The team of scientists who built this computer in a very short period of time should have experience in computer construction, and there was no computer in the past. Yet these computers he built were, for the best of their ability, less than any other computer of the time. Dr. Krishnan is the father of computer science research in India R. Working under the guidance of Narasimhan, the team, in fact, set the stage for India to take the lead in the IT revolution!
The indelible ink (indelible ink), which has been used for many purposes, has been a contributor to the Indian technology industry, starting with elections and identifying those in need of a quarantine in the Kovid-1 case. Renowned scientist Dr. It was produced by Dr. Shanthiswaroop Bhatnagar. Saleem Uzzaman Siddiqui. This ink is manufactured in the Araku factory (today’s Mysore Paints) set up by Maharaja Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wodeyas and exported from Mysore to many countries in the world.
India’s pharmaceutical industry has gained worldwide attention during the global epidemic of Kovid-1. Started under the direction of Acharya Prafullachandra Ray, the company has brought India to the forefront of the world in drug manufacturing and exports. The availability of generic drugs across the country has significantly reduced the cost of health care and India is exporting these drugs to various countries around the world.
The technology is widely used in the context of many other activities to prevent the spread of Kovid-1 infection. It is the achievement of Indian technicians who have utilized the advantages of technology for many purposes – devising methods for rapid screening of the disease, making simple devices for infection protection, and communicating the spread of disease through the Mobile App. The ‘Health Setu’ mobile app, which has seen more than five lakh downloads in the Google Play Store in just three days of launch, is a special example of the success of such efforts.
