Today-28TH Feb, is our National Science day. In 1928, C.V. Raman announced this day the world famous discovery -‘Raman Effect’, a discovery which would earn him a Nobel Prize in the year 1930. This landmark discovery is finding applications today in the area of continuous wave all-silicon laser.

The nation pays homage and expresses its gratitude this day to all the scientists who are dedicatedly involved in science and scientific discoveries as vehicles for the overall development of the country. Our former President APJ Abdul Kalam believes that celebrations of Science as such will attract many young children to take up science as a career. According to him National science day is the day which reminds us that the important ingredient for societal transformation would come mainly from science.

The focal theme of this years’ national science day in India is however ‘Understanding Planet Earth’ according Dr. Manoj Patairiya, director, National Council of Science and Technology Communication[NCSTC], New Delhi ,Government of India which is inspired by a declaration by the United Nations [UN] General Assembly during its 60th session, 2005 to celebrate 2008 as International Year of Earth. The International Year runs from January 2007 to December 2009, the central year of the triennium (2008) having been proclaimed by the UN General Assembly as the UN Year.

Science outreach programmes form the main activities of the International Year of Planet Earth [IYPE] throughout the world including India. The programmes consist of societally relevant and multidisciplinary themes like health, climate, groundwater, ocean, soils, deep Earth, mega cities, hazards, resources, and life. It is the biggest ever international effort to promote the Earth and biological sciences. All living, non living and human beings on the surface of earth will benefit with activities of this year. This initiative aims at raising world awareness about the importance of knowing the place where we inhabit in order to preserve it and to improve its environmental conditions. Another goal of this initiative is to encourage the recognition of the social contribution of geo-sciences to national education systems and also to reaffirm the importance of these specializations for human life and its development.

The inaugural function of the Indian Science Congress at Visakhapatnam on 3rd Jan 2008 witnessed the release of the Logo of Outreach Campaign for Planet Earth by Hon’ble Prime Minister Dr. Man Mohan Singh .Students’ rallies were also taken out in scheduled districts on 3rd Jan 2008 to signify the launch of the Outreach Campaign for Planet Earth.

NCSTC, Government of India has drafted the following oath in consultation with its experts which are to be taken by citizens of India today.

We Indians pledge to Conserve and make wise use of our Natural Resources.

We will not do anything to disturb the balanced interdependence of the Nature and its Beings,

Living with mutual Co-operation and Love for all;

We will Care for “Earth the Living Planet” and Work Together for the development of Mankind.

Our Earth and our Sources; we respect them all together.

Protection of nature and its beings; will make us proud forever.

And followings are some catchy slogans which aptly voice the concerns of planet earth and are befitting to the occasion. [Courtesy: NCSTC, Department of Science and Technology, GOI.]
