Guv urges scientists to ‘come out of comfort zone’

Governor M K Naryanan on Monday expressed dissatisfaction over the attitude of the Indian scientists and urged them to be more active.

At the valedictory function of the Indian Science Congress (ISC) he said the Indian society is in a state of lethargy and urged the Indian scientists to revaluate their position and get out from the comfort zone.

He said many suggestions have came up at the science congress and said the organisers should publish a booklet, which can then be spread to the masses.

The need of the hour is to set up more national councils, multidisciplinary universities so that scientific research could be harnessed, he said.

Meanwhile, secretary of the Science and Technology Department T Rameswamy has expressed anger over the mismanagement at the science congress and said that spot registration would be renewed from next year onwards.

He also asked the organisers to send a detailed project report for their second campus of ISC to be set up in Bengal, adding that a proposal for a separate corpus fund for the same has been sent for approval from the Union Finance Department. At present the Indian Science Congress has its campus at Biresh Guha Street in Kolkata.
