My greetings to India & the scientist community & My engineer buddies on National Technology Day, marking the anniversary of the Pokhran Tests of 1998. Tests of 1998 were a victory of technology & the nation’s willpower. Our scientists worked very hard to develop Nuclear Programme.
Fifteen years ago India laid a claim to the nuclear powers’ club membership by conducting nuclear tests at Pokhran, on May 11, 1998. The day, which proved the technical prowess of Indian scientists, is marked as the National Technology Day to inspire young minds to achieve high goals and excel at innovations.
Science City marked the day with a slew of activities, including lectures by eminent scientists and provided a platform to robotics enthusiasts. More than 150 engineering students from across the state participated.
