IN India, where the number of institutions for research is very small, it is now keenly realized that much greater attention must be paid to research, pure as well as applied, if India is to keep pace with the progressive nations of the world. A result of this new outlook and a welcome addition to such institutions is the newly established Institute for Fundamental Research, sponsored by the trustees of the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust and the Government of Bombay, with the subsequent support of the Government of India. The object is to create a centre for fundamental research, with particular reference to atomic physics and mathematics, and also to train the young scientific workers of India in these subjects.
