Honorable / Esteemed President/Principal/Headmaster, respected Chief Guest/Chief Speaker /Teachers and my friends. It is very much clear to you why we gather here. Today is 28th February, the science day.
Really, I am very grateful that I have given a chance to tell something in this auspicious day regarding the importance of Science Day. Today is observed as a Science Day all over India.
Today, we remember about the world-famous scientist Ain Stine. Once, he said, “Science is blind without religion and religion is handicapped without science.
This saying has startled the whole universe at that time. The entire universe is tied with the rope of science. Science and applied science are developing gradually. We cannot avoid the effect of science for the establishment of a pollution-free healthy society in the universe.
The most popular and outstanding scientist Chandra Shekhar Venkat Raman established his experimental thesis “Raman Effect” on 28th February, 1928.
The entire Universe was surprised. Dr. Chandra Shekhar Venkata Raman was born as the Aian Peta of Tamilnadu of India. He was the winner of Nobel Prize. He was awarded with the first “Bharat Ratna” award in 1954. He was also awarded the greatest award of Russia. “Latin Peace”.
A last such a great scientist left us forever on November 21, 1970. From that day onwards 28th February is observed as Science day in order to remember the first scientific memorandum of Dr. C. V. Raman in India.
In this very day, we ‘should think that the development of science is deadly necessary for the development of a country. It is because science can provide us with new discoveries and inventions which will be most useful in our day-to-day life.
Really, it is a matter of great happiness that science has tremendously improved in the sphere of Physics, Chemistry, applied science, Molecular Genetics, etc. On the other hand, it is a matter of regret that some of the selfish per
sons are utilising these scientific trends for destructions. They utilize these for mass killing. They are even ready to ruin the beautiful earth by their malafide intention. It is nothing but misusing the power of science for fowl purpose. It is only to utilise science in arough way.
For this reason science is losing its popularity day by day. Therefore, one thing should be kept in the mind that science should be always used for the good of humanity.
But it should never be used to destroy humanity. Such a use should be indicated by everybody. Hence, the observation of this science day will be fruitful, when it must be used to establish truth, peace and love.
If we utilise in good purpose, then it is doubtless that our life must be happy and enjoyable. In this auspicious science, day let us take a oath to utilise science for the welfare of the world. ‘Jai Hind’
