The World through the Prism of Science and Religion: Perspectives, Possibilities, and Promises

A scientist who applies visual systems of honeybees to unmanned aerial vehicles, and a theologian who studies faith, baptism and conversion – both see the world differently. Does one discipline explain life’s mysteries better than the other? Ordo they have common ground? Do they face similar challenges? And what do they promise for the future? These, among many others, are the puzzles our speakers will unravel.

Mr. Ramesh Vangal on “Beyond Boundaries: Karma, Innovation and India’s Economic Story”

The topic explored India’s quest to be an economic super power and the reasons for its mixed success. Principal Professor John Zachariah delivered the Introductory Address. At the event, the Gen K S Thimayya Medal was presented to Old Boy, Mr. H.M. Spratt, IPS (former DGP, Haryana).
