'Micro-surgery on Lord Ganesha, live telecast to Dhritrashtra examples of technology in ancient India'
BHOPAL: Governor Anandiben Patel said that India was far ahead when it came to use of science and technology even in ancient times.
She said that use of micro surgery on Lord Ganesh, use of Pushpak Viman and the direct broadcast of the battles of Mahabharata to Dhritarashtra by Sanjay are the best examples.
Giving examples of the instances from Hindu mythology, the Governor said that they show the technological advancements in those times.
She was speaking at an event organised in the Rajiv Gandhi Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya, RGPV--a Technological University in Bhopal. Addressing the gathering on the occasion of the Chancellor's Scholarship Distribution, she made these points.
Later, the Governor distributed scholarship cheques to 40 outstanding students on the occasion. Patel said that technology is with us at every step in our lives. Scholarship is a medium for the students to brush up their talent, skill and knowledge and to promote their interest.
It is the responsibility of the students who have received the scholarship to make good use of it and give their best. They should make their university, state and the country proud.
The Governor said that India has made a lot of progress in the field of technology. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has created a new record by launching 104 satellites simultaneously. It will send the second lunar exploration mission to the moon on April 3, 2018 which includes orbitor, lander and a small rover.
Principal Secretary Technical Education, Sanjay Bandopadhyay said that the state government is making efforts to improve technical education. The state government is implementing the central government schemes. Rajiv Gandhi Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya Vice Chancellor Sunil Kumar said that the students have raised the university’s prestige in the country and abroad.
