  • What special in 6th India International Science festival 2020?

The year 2020 witnessed the world passing through a critical phase because of the outbreak of an infectious novel Coronavirus. Scientists the world over have been struggling to find a cure for this pandemic. With no  precise solution in Hand the only way out is to adopt preventive measures like restricting human activities in a scientific manner to limit the  spread of the dreadful virus. The restrictions, in turn, have 
 Seriously affected travel, transportation, trade, industries and hampered routine life. Needless to say, the situation has forced everyone across the world to find solutions that are essentially local. Our Prime Minister, acknowledging the circumstances, has rightfully given a clarion call for ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ – a self-reliant India. Having recognized the vital role of science, technology and innovation in achieving self-reliance during this period of crisis the Indian S&T fraternity and all R&D institutions have responded swiftly and successfully to the call. This has helped immensely in building the desired confidence amongst people. There is a need to convey and showcase the achievements and actions taken to gain self-reliance through S&T to the society. India International Science Festival of 2020 – IISF 2020 – brings in an opportunity to demonstrate the strength and potential of Indian S&T not only to the people of India but to the entire international community as well.
This year, the India International Science Festival begins on 22 December 2020, the birthday of Srinivas Ramanujan, and culminates on 25 December 2020, the birthday of former Prime Minister of India Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Ramanujan was a world-renowned Indian mathematician and an inspiring figure among the pantheon of Indian scientists. Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee was a muchloved political figure who added to the inspiring slogan of ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, ‘Jai Vigyan’ – reflecting his deep commitment to the belief that S&T would always be at the core of the nation’s progress.
