PGT: Lets have the concluding remarks of Dr Uberoi.

JPS: I think Dr Mashelkar is moving towards saying that in these 50 years of Independence, we really have not accepted the responsibilities of Independence, in science, in technology, and in the application to development, because to be independent does not mean to be cut off from the rest of the world, but it does mean to stand up for oneself, and these responsibilities involve all sections of our country, we have yet to achieve that independence.

PGT: Thank You, Dr Uberoi and Dr Mashelkar, for being with us on India Talks.
