About the Book :

Gandhi and Nehru and innumerable freedom fighters not only struggled for freedom but also worked for the eradication of exploitation and poverty and for making the country self sufficient and strong. This could be achieved only with the spread of education and rapid industrialization through large scale use of science and technology. The social goal of better living standards for the masses can be achieved only with the assurance of external peace and the absence of internal conflicts along with the development of scientific temper among the people.

About Author :

J.N. Nanda besides being an Eminent Scientist with two earned doctorates in Physics and Applied Physics respectively has also been active in the social and cultural sphere. He was the first scientist in India to begin research work in oceanography and underwater sound. He prefers the advance of co-existence rather than aiming at unity in diversity. Understanding the complexity of human mind, he advocates a new Mahayana of co-existence and earnest efforts to square beliefs with advances in science and technology. He has numerous papers and books to his name. He has travelled extensively and led some government delegations abroad.
