Chandigarh, May 11 (IANS) Punjab Governor and Chandigarh Administrator V.P. Singh Badnore on Friday said India’s technological advancement in ancient times could be seen from the building of “Ram Setu” (bridge) to Lord Rama and Lord Hunuman bringing the “Sanjeevni Booti”.

Addressing a gathering of scientists, techies, faculty and young scientists of the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (NIPER), on the occasion of National Technology Day, Badnore urged them to make collective efforts to enhance innovation and knowledge sharing.
“Application of technology was evident in the ancient times when Lord Rama built a Setu across the sea and Hanumanji brought Sanjeevni Booti for Lakshman and also many advanced weapons were used at that time,” Badnore told the scientists.
“Our epics Ramayana and Mahabharata prove that in India technology has been used since ancient times. Today, India is being considered as an advanced country because of its rapid growth in technology in all spheres of life,” he added.

At the same time, we will not stake any claim to be moralists as that can the most difficult test to pass and we admit it.
