Jana Vigyan Mela

1. Jana Vigyan Mela, the very name is indicative of the prime objective to encompass common people in a scientific platform. It is a unique science based community festival to generate scientific awareness amongst the masses at large. This mela will inculcate the education in knowing the world and develop a person's humanity. Education should start from the day-to-day life of people and be linked with our everyday lives. Through the use of newest technologies, scientific development can be demonstrated to the students in a most simplistic manner. It also paves the way for direct interactions of the community with scientists and technocrats including agriculturists, veterinary scientists, engineers, scientists from various science backgrounds etc.
