         WE LOVE SCIENCE HERE BECAUSE IT IS A MANY SPLENDOURED THING

     THIS  IS A WAR ZONE WHERE SCIENCE FIGHTS WITH NONSENSE AND WINS                                               

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.”             

                    "Being a scientist is a state of mind, not a profession!"

"Knowledge is a Superpower but the irony is you cannot get enough of it with ever increasing data base unless you try to keep up with it constantly and in the right way!" The best education comes from learning from people who know what they are exactly talking about.

Science is this glorious adventure into the unknown, the opportunity to discover things that nobody knew before. And that’s just an experience that’s not to be missed. But it’s also a motivated effort to try to help humankind. And maybe that’s just by increasing human knowledge—because that’s a way to make us a nobler species.

If you are scientifically literate the world looks very different to you.

We do science and science communication not because they are easy but because they are difficult!

Why there are less women in science and technology areas: Science and technology doesn't discriminate between men and women. According to Ms. Tessy Thomas, India's missile woman, Science has no gender. Science does not know from where knowledge is coming - it is only the willingness to learn and know things that matters. If you are willing to take on challenges and learn from experience, that is what is required for women to shine in science and technology.
When women do excel in male-dominated jobs, they're not generally celebrated for it. In fact, women may be penalized for being too ambitious, too confident, too assertive.

People attribute 'hard work' to men and 'household' work to women. The requirements for doing well in certain scientific fields don't fit with the attributes women are considered to have.

This stereotype is not correct and is responsible for the backwardness of women.

What is sixth extinction?: An exhaustive survey of the 5,487 identified species of mammals—which includes us—reveals that one in four are dying out. From amphibians to corals, the planet’s animals are disappearing, mowed under by increasing cropland, felled forests and polluted oceans. This disappearance of plants and animals from our planet has been dubbed the sixth extinction because it may be the sixth time that the Earth has experienced a mass loss of species.
