‘Science for All’

India was fortunate to have no less than three total solar eclipses which were visible from this country in the last two decades. These were used by hundreds of organisations all over the country to promote mass participation in safe eclipse viewing and in discussions on science and superstitions. The low cost solar filters produced by Navnirmiti for safe viewing ensured the participation of crores in this activity. Peoples science movement have been building a mass campaigns on studying the sun, utilising the phenomenon of sunspots, TOV Solar Eclipse all of which can be viewed elegantly but simply with equipment available in the poorest village school.

The utilisation of low cost/ no cost methods of promoting high quality learning is both possible and necessary to counter the misconception that science is the monopoly of the advanced West, which can only be accessed through expensive computer hardware and software out of reach of most Indians, or through the National Geographic or Discovery channels on cable TV
