    "WE HAVE NOT ONLY TO WALK BUT REALLY TO RACE IN COMPARISON WITH MANY NATIONS THAT ARE SO MUCH MORE ADVANCED THAN WE ARE. WE HAVE FULL CONFIDENCE IN OUR OWN PEOPLE, IN OUR OWN SCIENTISTS AND WHILE REALISING THE IMPORTANCE OF THE INTERDEPENDENCE OF KNOWLEDGE, OF THE SHARING OF KNOWLEDGE BETWEEN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES, WE KNOW THAT IN EACH COUNTRY THERE ARE BANDS OF DEDICATED, DEVOTED SCIENTISTS WHO CAN PUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE TO WORK AND HELP THEIR COUNTRY TO ADVANCE AND TO PLAY A PROPER ROLE IN THE COMMITTEE OF NATIONS. I'M SURE THAT THIS CONFERENCE WILL BE ONE MORE STEP FORWARD IN THIS DIRECTION AND YOU HAVE ALREADY HAD SOME MEETINGS, BUT MAY I WISH YOU, OR GIVE MY GOOD WISHES FOR THE REST OF THE CONFERENCE AND TO OUR FOREIGN DELEGATES SAY WELCOME AND I HOPE THEY WILL FIND THEIR STAY HERE INTERESTING AS WELL AS ENJOYABLE AND I HOPE THEY GO BACK TO THEIR COUNTRIES AS GOOD FRIENDS OF INDIA, THANK YOU".

    Background: THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER, MRS INDIRA GANDHI, ADDRESSED A 40-NATIONS SYMPOSIUM ON COLLABORATION AMONG AFRO-ASIAN COUNTRIES IN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY IN NEW DELHI YESTERDAY (SATURDAY).

    MRS GANDHI TOLD THE 270 SCIENTISTS THAT ASIA AND AFRICA MUST CATCH UP WITH ADVANCED COUNTRIES IN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY IF THEY WANTED TO KEEP FREE FROM "FOREIGN DOMINATION". SHE TOLD THEM THAT MUCH OF THE UNREST IN ASIA AND AFRICA WAS DUE TO THE DISPARITY BETWEEN DEVELOPING AND ADVANCED COUNTRIES AND THAT IF THE NATIONS OF ASIA AND AFRICA FELL TO "FOREIGN DOMINATION AND IMPERIALISM", IT WAS NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF INTERNAL TROUBLES BUT BECAUSE THEY FELL BEHIND IN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY.

    THE SEMINAR, WHICH IS BEING HELD IN THE NATIONAL PHYSICAL LABORATORY, IS BEING ATTENDED BY SCIENTISTS FROM OVER 40 COUNTRIES.
