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.
