The Shaping of Indian Science: 1914-1947

Front Cover
Universities Press, 2003 - Indian Science Congress - 592 pages
This is a compendium of the speeches of the Presidents of the Indian Science Congress Association (ISCA) from 1914-2003. Through the years, these Presidents have inspired the Congress by their speeches-some of them visionary, some impassioned in their plea for Science, but all of them with a message that Science must be used for the good of the human race.
