The one-stop source for information and news about Nano Technology - Nano Digest, an English monthly magazine hits the news stands. India's first magazine on Nanotechnology, Nano Digest is produced from Hyderabad. ‘Nano Messiah', world's great scientist and Father of Indian Nanotechnology Prof. C.N.R. Rao just unveiled the inaugural edition.

The Government of India started the National Nano Mission just about a year and half ago. We have been asking the Government of India to invest a substantial amount of money for research and development in Nanoscience and technology for sometime. The government agreed to give Rs.1000 crore for the Nano Mission to implement the various projects, informed Prof. CNR Rao, Chairman of Nano Mission in India in a cover story published in first issue of Nano Digest. Speaking about plans of Nano Mission in India, Rao said in the interview that the Nano Mission will be setting up two institutes of Nanoscience and Technology at Bangalore and Chandigarh.

The cover story features Prof. CNR Rao, FRS who is Chair of the Scientific Advisory Council to India's Prime Minister and National Research Professor, Linus Pauling Research Professor and Jawaharalal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR). Who could be a better personality than Prof Rao to feature on the cover of our maiden issue said K. Jayadev, Editor of Nano Digest in his editorial. Prof Rao has received worldwide recognition for his contribution to solid state and materials Chemistry and is an author of over 1500 research papers and 41 books. He has received honorary doctorates from 46 Universities. He has been honored with several national and international scientific awards except the Nobel Prize mentions the cover story. In this cover story, Prof Rao speaks about the state of Nanotechnology in India, the directions it needs to take and also what it has got in store for every Indian.
