Indian Science Congress Centenary 3.1.2013

The Commemorative Postage Stamp released to mark this milestone depicts the spirit of the Centenary Session of the Indian Science Congress. A child, tender, mouldable & future of India, is observing a flower through a Magnifying Glass and DNA Structure in the background.

The Indian Science Congress Association (ISCA) owes its origin to the foresight and initiative of two British Chemists, namely, Professor J. L. Simonsen and Professor P. S. MacMohan. The Association was formed with the objective to advance and promote the cause of science in India, to hold an annual congress at a suitable place in India, to publish such proceedings, journals, transactions and other publications as may be considered desirable.

The centenary session of the Indian Science Congress is scheduled to be held from 3-7 January, 2013 at Kolkata. The theme for the session was Science for shaping the future of India“.
