Vikram Ambalal Sarabhai 1919-1971

Dr. Vikram Ambalal Sarabhai the eminent space scientist and father of Indian Space Programme. His significant contribution towards astronomy, aeronautics and planetary sciences and atomic science programme has put India on the path of achieving self-reliance in technology and applying it to solve the problems of common man.

“There are some who question the relevance of Space activities in a nation. To us there is no ambiguity of purpose. We do not have the fantasy of competing with economically advanced nations in the explorations of Moon or the planets or manned spaceflight. But if we are convinced that if we are to play a meaningful role nationally and in the comity of nations, we must be second to none in the application of advanced technologies to the real problems of man and society

Bharat Ratna Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
1931- 2015
11th President of India

Dear young friends, When I see you all, I was asking myself two questions. One is; what are the unique traits, aspiring young scientists should possess. The second one is; how many of you from this large gathering will take science as a life time mission. History has proven that those who dare to imagine the impossible are the ones who break all human limitations. In every field of human endeavour, whether science, medicine, sports, the arts, or technology, the names of the people who imagined the impossible and achieved are engraved in our history. By breaking the limits of their imagination, they changed the world. Friends, if we aspire to achieve great things in life, we need scientific magnanimity to focus the young achievers. It is my experience that great mind and great heart go together. This scientific magnanimity will motivate the scientific community and nurture the spirit of achievement among the young towards science
