He was speaking after inaugurating the 22nd Swadeshi Science Convention organised by CPCRI and Swadeshi Science Movement Kerala at CPCRI's C V Raman Hall in Kasargod.

“Indian science has immense value in foreign countries. The Government should  understand its importance and try to make the best use of it,” he said.

He also pointed out that experimental technology has not been successful in India.
The foreign scientific culture was not adopted in India.

It was India which introduced science to the world. It is sad that the contribution towards one's own country is less. Indians do not have the mentality to adapt to new changes. To develop scientific mentality in India, foreign science research is important, he said.

Presiding over the programme, CPCRI Director Dr George V Thomas said that the convention aims to spread awareness on the importance of Indian science.

It is possible to bring balance in nature by growing coconut trees. Coconut is the most nutritious food and has nutrition similar to mother's milk, he said.

Central University Vice Chancellor Dr Jancy James said that research and science should reach the common man.

It is sad that today  research is plagiarized, James said.Indian Meteorological Department Expert Dr P V Joseph received 'Swadeshi Science Award' from CPCRI Scientist Dr V P N Namboori.
