5 Take aways from PM Modi’s speech


107th Indian Science Congress in Bengaluru - A City of Science, Space and Strength

Technology is a key tool of Smart Campus Cloud Network - SCCN ( see: ), where we are not only focused on creating ideas but to shape these ideas into smart solutions for sustainable tomorrow. PM Modi at 107th Indian Science Congress in Bengaluru - City of Science, Space and Strength spoke of key areas to make use of the skills and knowledge towards a climate-friendly and eco-friendly nation. It thereby, guards the vision of SCCN, which is to create a network of colleges/universities and contribute to Smart India Mission and UN Sustainable Development Goals by deploying technologies for practical solutions such as, Cloud Networking, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data.

Modi was addressing largest science gathering in the world, his first speech in 2020 after success of India's growth story and mixed success of Chandrayan-2. Here are the take aways:

Growth Story of India

"The growth story of India depends on its achievements in the Science & Technology sector. There is a need to revolutionise the landscape of Indian Science, Technology and Innovation. My motto for the young scientists bourgeoning in this country has been -"Innovate, Patent, Produce and Prosper". These four steps will lead our country towards faster development. If we innovate, we will patent and that in turn will make our production smoother and when we take these products to the people of our country, they will prosper. Innovation for the people and by the people is the direction of our 'New India'."

Energy Transition to address climate crisis

"India must develop a long term roadmap for sustainable and environment friendly transportation and energy storage options. The latter becomes increasingly significant for grid management as we expand our renewable energy supply. These require developing new battery types which are based on earth abundant, environmentally benign materials which are not monopolistic, are affordable on 100s of giga watt scales, and suitable for tropical climates."

Farmer Centric progress

"Can we find farmer-centric solutions to the problem of stalk burning for instance? Can we also redesign our brick kilns for reduced emissions and greater energy efficiency? We need to find better and faster solutions to the problem of clean drinking water supplies around the country. How do we prevent effluents and discharge from industries from ruining our soil and our groundwater tables for years to come?"

Climate forecast

"The economic and social benefits of accurate weather and climate forecasting are immense. There have been considerable improvements in weather forecast and warning services especially in case of Tropical cyclones. This is evident from large reduction in casualties. Our successes in space exploration should now be mirrored in the new frontier of the deep sea. We need to explore, map and responsibly harness the vast oceanic resources of water, energy, food and minerals. This requires developing deep strengths in manned submersibles, deep sea mining systems and autonomous underwater vehicles."

What PM learnt from scientists

"I have learned from the scientists that the potential energy, the silent form of energy can move mountains by its conversion to the kinetic energy of motion. Can we build a Science in Motion? Imagine the enormous impact of a full translation of our scientific potential into an unprecedented socio-economic development through relevant technologies, innovations, start-ups and industry. Can we have this high pressure steam drive a high speed engine of Science & Technology to navigate and connect the new India of opportunities?
