Speaking at the inaugural session of the 100th Indian Science Congress, Mukherjee called upon the scientific community to work towards the promotion of a scientific culture for shaping India’s future in which prosperity and peace, excellence and equity, oriental values and occidental methods of science converge and co-exist.

He said India is expected to emerge as a major economic power by 2035. India should also emerge as a major knowledge power with high human and societal values.
