What ails Indian science?
Having based our policy on the structure left behind by the British, S&T comes under the Prime Minister under whom a chief scientific adviser and science advisory council function. The Prime Minister controls the ministry through the National Council on S&T. Then there is the Ministry of Earth Sciences, and Departments for S&T, Bio Technology etc. This apart, there are ministries and departments like Scientific and Industrial Research, Agriculture, Chemicals and Fertilizers, Non-conventional energy sources, Health etc which fund projects in various universities and laboratories. The one big question is about nanotechnology which is going to play an important role in every field where materials or molecules are involved. As the Indian Science Congress began at Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday, it is time the community discussed with the who's who of S&T what ails Indian science.
