I feel proud to be the part of Vigyan Bharati (VIBHA), a world's largest organization working for science movement in society. This great vision was originated from Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) Bangalore by Prof. K I Basu in 90's, when he was faculty in the department of metallurgy at IISc. He was inspired to implement his extraordinary vision by reading correspondence between Swami Vivekananda and JRD Tata, the founder of IISc. I am fortunate to hear all the stories of VIBHA's origin and struggles from Prof. Basu at IISc on his 90th birthday.

Inculcate scientific temperament in our society is our social and moral responsibility. It is our fundamental duty and included in the constitution as new part IV-A through 42nd constitutional amendment in 1976. Great quote regarding scientific temper is

"The scientific approach, the adventurous and yet critical temper of science, the search for truth and new knowledge, the refusal to accept anything without testing and trial, the capacity to change previous conclusions in the face of new evidence, the reliance on observed fact and not on pre-conceived theory, the hard discipline of the mind—all this is necessary, not merely for the application of science but for life itself and the solution of its many problems." —Jawaharlal Nehru (1946) The Discovery of India, p. 512"

India faces critical challenges as a nation in its march towards a welfare state. Considering the nature of the challenges which are so unique, only rapid strides in the sector of science and technology, in resonance with India’s heritage can meet those challenges. In this context Vijnanabharati, a science movement with swadeshi spirit has a greater role to play.

Swadeshi Science Movement was started in Indian Institite of Science- (Bengaluru) by a few eminent scientists under the guidance of Prof. K I Vasu. This movement gradually gained momentum and emerged as an organization with national presence. In 1991(Oct 20-21) at the Nagpur meet, it was decided, to launch the Swadeshi Science Movement at all India Level and named it as Vijnanabharati. The foundation principle of VIBHA is made
  • As a vibrant movement for the development of Swadeshi Sciences
  • As a dynamic Science Movement with a Swadeshi Spirit, interlinking traditional and modern sciences on the one hand, and natural and spiritual sciences on the other hand
  • As a Swadeshi Movement with modern sciences adapted to national needs.
Vijnanabharati has units in 22 states across the country and contacts in 4 states. It is working in 11 different areas through autonomous institutions, independent organizations & also as project entities. For more details please go through EXPLORE VIBHA link

India has been a pioneer in Science & Technology since ancient times. This belief needs to be re-established as a scientific concept among the future science scholars of Rural Uttarakhand.

  1. Uttarakhand, being Dev Bhoomi has played a vital role in India’s scientific development since ages. Divine Life giving herbs like Sanjeevani & Brahma Kamal need to be re-versioned for Global production & usage.
  2. Being a far geographic region, the Students of Uttarakhand must get an opportunity of interaction and orientation with the Global scientific community.
  3. Save Himalayas, Nature, Ecology and Environmental Heritage of Uttrakhand with the advanced scientific temper of budding Indian Scientists/ Scholars, by creating sensitization for sustainable development under SDG.
