National science Day is over unnoticed ?February 28 is celebrated as the National Science Day every year. Most of the educational institutions and science and research institutions including universities in the country organized suitable programmes on that day to convey the message of the day.
These days it has become necessary to give importance for propagating 'scientific temper' among the people in the country. Our leaders like Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru and Dr.S. Radhakrishnan have stressed the need for developing this thinking among all.
These days people learn science and technology and earn their livelihood using these science and technology. But they just neglect science and its principles when dealing with their daily life. Very often they opt for unscientific solutions for problems they face.
Celebration of this National Science Day is to spread this message of scientific temper among all.
This day is chosen because it was on this day the theory of 'Raman effect' was first announced, which later earned the Nobel Prize to Dr. C. V. Raman.
