IGNOU advocates sustainability science development

By Staff

Visakhapatnam, Jan 6 (UNI) Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) Executive Director, S K Chopra today called for a multi-pronged approach, utilising new fields of sustainability science development to meet the challenges in the country.

Talikng to mediapersons on the sidelines of the 95th Indian Science Congress here, he said education for sustainability science would be the key to build capacity in the country to face the problems of unsustainability which has become endemic in the process of development.

Dr Chopra said sustainable development would be the need of the hour for progress of the developing countries. Scientists, educationists, NGOs and beneficiaries should facilitate the process, he added.

Speaking on the occasion, Chancellor of Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidya Peeth, V R Panchamukhi said Vedic Science is inter-related and can be interpreted in relation to each other to help understand human life better.

Dr Panchamukhi said even before the West could advance, the centuries-old Indian Vedas dwelt at length about all sciences.

However, the Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas and Sciences were different, he added.

He said an ocean of theorems and scientific principles of science was embedded in the Vedas.

Dr Arunachalam spoke about calculus, integers, geometry and others.

The Head of the Department of Astrology, C V B Subrahamanyam said stars, planets and their movement decide the well being of the people. The planetary motion and physiology of the human body were inter-related and influence each other, Dr Subrahamanyam added.
