A refreshing Sunday morning it was where we got an opportunity to congratulate the path breaking work of our Proud indian scientists for the discovery of the existence of gravitational forces at the IUCCA institute in pune university along with pune MP Anil Shirole This is very Proud moment for all Punekar’s for having an institution like IUCAA. Our Hon Prime Minister Modiji has always been supportive regarding the scientific innovations by Indians at global level.

LIGO stands for The Laser Interferometer Gravitational- Wave Observatory MP Anil Shirole promised to ensure his sincere efforts for all necessary things expected from the government for the execution of LIGO India project IUCAA Director Prof Somak Raychaudhary, Prof. Sanjeev Dhurandhar, Ex IUCAA Director Prof Ajit Kembhavi & Prof Tarun Sourdeep were present along with many young scientists.

I also had a interesting conversation with the young scientists and some amazing exchange of thoughts . A scientist is somewhere between art and commerce , he needs both creativity and also the support of modern commerce is what they told me. Such initiatives like LIGO are important as they will inspire young Indians to engage in international scientific research within the Country.
