The Indian National Science Academy (INSA), New Delhi is a premier Academy of India with a rich legacy (www.insaindia.res.in) in promoting science. It functions as an autonomous institution of the Dept. Science & Technology, Govt. of India. The Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), New Delhi is a statutory body to support basic research (www.serb.gov.in).
The two institutions have come together to organize a photo/painting and a one-minute-film competitions. The idea is that in addition to their specialization, people should be able to see, understand and appreciate science around them. A critical look will help in fostering and promoting the scientific spirit, interest in research and will encourage creative abilities.
The theme for the competition is ‘Science through My Eyes’. Any suitable subtheme under this main theme may be chosen. Some examples of subthemes are science in the lab/kitchen/sports/hospital/home/at work. The creation may include any work in above forms related to the covid-19 virus, healthy life, geo-heritage, health, fascinating space AND any subtheme covered under the main theme ‘Science though My Eyes’.
