One of many of my childhood dreams was to visit Science Activity Center (called Muktangan Vidnyan Shodhika) at Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), (inside Savitribai Phule Pune University). This is a place that came into existence due to efforts of a great human named : “Arvind Gupta“. I also wanted to meet him but unfortunately he was out of city. This is a beautiful place and everyone who has any kind of relation with science must visit this place before he/she dies. At this place you will find science blossoming everywhere.
One of the person working here explains me : ” At this place we find science behind jugaad”. [“Juggad” is a slang for Hindi speaking people meaning: collect waste material and construct some thing useful out of it]. He also demonstrated me several things that they have developed out of trash like “infinite ink pen” ; “indigenous award winning levitation model”; “box out of cold drink bottle” (not yet on internet), so on there are more than 300 such ” toys from trash”..
Here you see science in its true divine form. Everybody is welcome here. Whoever reading this post, must visit : www.arvindguptatoys.com (I am a regular visitor for last 8 years).
