Science of Today: Technology of Tomorrow

Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world Louis Pasteur. Scientific thought and interest have been at the backbone of mankind’s advancements and progress – be it the discovery of fire, the wheel or the power of nuclear fission. Scientific temperament and an inquisitive mind are essential for the people to move forward, as only a scientific mind can enquire into situations and seek solutions. If Newton had not questioned the falling down of apple instead of going up, he would not have discovered the power of gravity. Science however is not only about abstract thoughts but also about its application in various fields impacting the common man. In science, every discovery is a permanent gain. As Eisntein said, “science of today is the technology of tomorrow”. Development is always linked with technology. Particularly in today’s knowledge based economies, science and technology are the basic pre requisites for development. Developments in science and technology are fundamentally altering the way people live, connect and communicate with each other. Scientific inventions like electricity, faster means of transport and weather forecasting systems have made life easier and better for the common man who has light at his disposal to study, travel faster for business and is pre-warned about disasters. Innovations in various sectors are helping young entrepreneurs to upgrade their skills and initiate start ups. India, a food importer at one time, is now not only self sufficient but is also able to export food items thanks to the Green Revolution. Scientific discoveries have helped farmers raise better crops at a faster pace, thus solving the problem of food shortage
