Indian Government is currently paying 1500 crores (~150 million USD) per year for journal subscriptions and around 200 (~20 million USD) crores APC charges for #OpenAccess says @kvijayraghavan @PrinSciAdvGoI speaking at @DSTCPRIISc Unlocking the doors to knowledge repositories
@kvijayraghavan @PrinSciAdvGoI @DSTCPRIISc Knowledge has been the driver of social and economic change. Around 54% of our industry workforce is not skilled. This is not good for a knowledge-based economy. Rural reach is also key to bridge the Rural-Urban divide (India and Bharat).
Research is necessary for a knowledge-based society. 95% of our students go to a state university, where very little research is done! Research is not focussed on our issues and import heavy! There is a need to scale up local resources for conducting research.

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.

I am sure most of us struggle to get the correct answers spontaneously. The point here is that none of us remembers the headlines of yesterday
Even though these people must be the best in their fields the fact remains..
