The Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh said that the Government would try to retain the country’s talent at home by creating exciting career opportunities for scientists. The Prime Minister said that 21st century is going to be a ‘knowledge century’ then it is not military power, nor economic power, but ‘brain power’ that will determine our place in the comity of nations. He spoke while giving away the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prizes for 2004 and 2005 to 21 scientists here today. He also presented the CSIR Diamond Jubilee Technology Award for 2004 to Midas Communications Technologies Pvt. Ltd. Prime Minister also released the ‘India Science Report’ relating to science and technology status report of the country.

Referring to the Report, the Prime Minister expressed his concern on the shortage of good, highly, motivated science teachers at higher level. He asked the HRD Ministry and the State Governments to take due note of this and take necessary remedial action. The Prime Minister also pointed out the regional imbalance in terms of education institutions in different States. He hoped that the Government at the Centre and the States will take note of findings of India Science Report and evolve a policy to remedy these regional imbalances.

Mentioning the initiatives taken by the Government, the Prime Minister said that the Ministry of Human Resource Development has already set up a task force on rejuvenation of scientific research in universities and the target of doubling the number of PhDs coming out of India within the next five to six years.

Appreciating the awardees, Shri Kapil Sibal, Minister for Science and Technology and Ocean Development said that the Government has taken several initiatives to inculcate scientific temper in the younger generation. Mentioning 21 Bhatnagar Awardees as ‘super stars’, Shri Sibal assured the scientists that ‘you will get the very best we can give you to compete with the best in the world. Indeed the very best must be retained in India and return to India’.

Expressing his gratitude for Prime Minister releasing the India Science Report, the Minister said that it is truly revealing of the state of science and technology in the country—it will help quell the many myths that are spread about Indian science and technology.

Appreciating the role of CSIR for recognizing the best in Indian science and technology for decades now, Shri Sibal said ‘we need to publicise these heros on the national stage. This will inspire, motivate and attract some of our brightest youngsters to science’.
