Indian minister gives a spiritual message

30 June 1999

India's science minister Murli Manohar Joshi made five recommendations in his plenary address to the World Conference yesterday. These were: greater mobility of scientists, a world technology report to complement Unesco's world science report, access to scientific literacy and culture, and the preservation and utilization of traditional knowledge systems.

"It appears to me that the time has come for a dynamic improvement in the state of affairs. Science must not only think about a few, but for all in the creation of god. This conference should show us the way for a non-exploitative, non-violent and a peaceful world based on respect, reciprocity, equality of all human beings, respect for nature, and lasting peace for all."
