Jalandhar: On the occasion of National Science Day, IK Gujral Punjab Technical University (IKGPTU) organised two programmes. The theme of the main event was ‘Indigenous Technology for Viksit Bharat’. The first programme was organised by the NSS wing of Department of Students Welfare IKGPTU at the Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Auditorium, in which Dr BR Ambedkar National Institute of Technology (NIT) Jalandhar Director Prof Binod Kumar Kanaujia was the chief guest. The second programme was organised by the Civil Engineering Department of the university, in which Registrar Dr SK Misra was the chief guest. Prof Kanaujia said that basic science, technology and engineering are all in co-relation with each other. He paid tribute to Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman, an Indian physicist, known for his work in the field of light scattering and shared the example of his continuous work on the same subject since his graduation. Sharing the contribution of scientists educated from normal institutions in Chandrayaan Project, he inspired the students saying that institutions are not big or small as dedication and continuous efforts play a bigger role.

Plantation drive

A tree plantation drive was initiated by students and faculty of Guru Nanak Dev University, Regional Campus, Ladhewali, under the aegis of its NSS wing. The volunteers from the Department of Laws, Engineering and Journalism & Mass Communication participated in the go-green initiative and planted seasonal plants on the campus. Dr Rupum Jagota, Associate Dean, motivated the students to plant more trees in future because trees provide oxygen and make the air quality better. If more trees are planted, then the environment will become a safer place to live in, he said. Dr Charan Kamal Walia, Programming Officer, NSS wing of the campus, encouraged the students to save the environment. Dr Varinder Singh, Head, Department of Laws, Dr Komal Krishan Mehta, Dr Namarta Joshi, Head, Department of JMC, Dr Sukriti, Dr Himali, Dr Nitika and Dr Varinder Attri were also present on the occasion.

Declamation contest

Important new technological developments in the field of science meant for human welfare were also discussed in the contest. Principal Dr Kiranjeet Randhawa laid stress on the theme, ‘Science as a boon, not as a bane’. She added that organising such kind of contests help students gain knowledge that is certainly not feasible solely from books. She also shared that Dr CV Raman was the first Asian who was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1930 for science.

The MP said that the state government was taking key steps to promote sports with events like Khedan Watan Punjab Diyan.
