Lauding Indian-American scientists and IT professionals working in the US, Science and Technology Minister Harsh Vardhan has sought their contribution to India’s growth.

“We want your positive suggestions, your constructive criticism, your knowledge and experience and your “Vivek” (wisdom) to contribute to India’s growth,” he said in his address to a group of Indian-American professionals at a reception hosted by the Global Indian Technology Professionals Organisation in the Silicon Valley on Thursday.

Harsh Vardhan, who was in the Silicon Valley to attend the ministerial meeting on energy, emphasised that the Indian government is dedicated to bringing the benefits of science to the people of India.

Sharing his vision of Digital India and the current long- term as well as short-term initiatives and achievements, the minister mentioned initiatives such as India’s Mars Orbiter mission, re-usable Space Shuttle, support for the Thirty Meter Telescope, National Monsoon forecasting, Desalination, Earthquake Prediction, Genome Sequencing, vaccine research for Dengue and many others.

“I would like to congratulate you on being so well organised globally. Every time I visit the USA, my respect for all of you who live here grows because of your ability to come together for India’s cause,” Vardhan said in the presence of Vivek Agarwal, a senior bureaucrat from Madhya Pradesh.
