Abstract:

"The second wave of scientific development in India, starting in the late 1960s with an emphasis on indigenous development of science and technology (S & T), was an era of unprecedented design and application of technology in India. This book details how S & T policies and institutions were designed, talks of the people who made them possible, analyzes the potential of S & T institutions in enabling economic and social well-being and business development, and discusses the roles played by Indira Gandhi, the Prime Minister's office, and the political leadership in building a massive and diversified superstructure of technological capability and capacity."

"The author cites examples like the Suri Transmission and Sharbati Sonora to highlight the human aspect of scientific innovation. Based on the author's experience as Special Assistant, Science & Technology, to Indira Gandhi, and his day-to-day interaction with her on the making and unmaking of S & T policies, this book will be of equal interest to government officials, policy-makers, and the general reader."--Jacket.
