“In my personal experience as a minister for science, I have done much, but have literally and miserably failed to communicate the efforts of the people,” Vardhan told reporters. The book “is a unique and historic moment for science in India. People in the science and technology department of the government must read the book as it deftly explains to the models how to communicate science to the people,” he said.
The book published by Springer India, provides a snapshot of existing science communication policy and practice in India across different science and technology sectors, and offers solutions to building effective communication. “Science has a huge potential and power, and through science issues that are yet unresolved even after 70 years can be resolved,” Vardhan said.
