I extend my hearty good wishes to all members and associates. I have always admired the passion and commitment of our members towards building as a vibrant professional body and wondered what drives them to do this noble work for society, many a times at the cost of their personal comforts and priorities. The pleasure of working for societal transformation through use of science and technology is no doubt a source of motivation. Our visionary founders realized early the potential of in transforming the life of citizens and in making the globe a better place to live in, and set up a long term mission and sound objectives for society which continue to motivate our members. There is no dearth of committed individual in our country, who is passionate about working for societal and professional improvements. It is a welcome development that government is inviting successful entrepreneurs to take lead and leverage their experience of using for societal cause in helping the government in bringing in far-reaching improvements in the life of citizens and solving national problems through use of society.
