National Science Day
Ramana Prasad, entrepreneur, educationist and chairman of AI school of India addressed National Science Day 2022.

National Science Day is celebrated each year in the memory of Dr CV Raman in India on 28 February. The discovery of ‘The Raman Effect’ by Dr CV Raman in 1928. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in Physics to discover the Raman Effect.

The purpose of celebrating this day is to spread the message about the importance of science and technology in everyday life.

Every year, National Science Day is celebrated with a different theme. The theme of 2022 is ‘Integrated approach in science and technology for a sustainable future.

The theme was launched by Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh, who specifically mentioned that the purpose behind selecting this theme was to raise public appreciation and awareness about the scientific issues. He also noted that important scientific days like the National Science Day should be one-day events and should be celebrated regularly.

The theme for National Science Day 2022 focuses on the need to work in an integrated manner and coordinate for integrated, theme-based projects. It also involves giving away several prizes and awards for excellent work done in the field of science and technology.

Ramana Prasad, who is a globally renowned entrepreneur, educationist, and the chairman of AI School of India mentioned, “National Science Day, which is held every year in India is important to foster the scientific spirit not only in the adults, but also young children in schools, colleges, and universities in India. Towards achieving this objective, AI School of India conducts science-related workshops, contests, and quizzes for the students throughout the year to motivate the students in the field of science.”

Ramana Prasad also quoted that “Science means power to the people and for the people”. Science enables people to ‘Share, Learn, and Improve’.

The theme empowers various institutions to collaborate, grow, and work for a common cause, The Welfare of Humans and Nature.” Ramana Prasad mentions that data science and artificial intelligence will dominate the future. His message to Indian students is a strong foundation in data science, and artificial intelligence will prepare them to become innovators and global leaders.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
