ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Prof. Shukla is a labor activist, writer and founder of "Jan Vigyan Samiti" and a leading figure in India's People's Science Movement (PSM). A former professor of Physics at IIT Kanpur, Prof. Shukla has made significant contributions to the philosophy of People's Science and has been active in labor movements and alternative development in India.
 

PEOPLE'S SCIENCE MOVEMENT

The People's Science Movement has emerged as a vibrant nationwide movement in India encouraging mass participation in matters of development, including intervention in science-related policy formation. PSM has not only made popularization of science a mass movement but mobilized the public on social issues in which Science and Technology have a bearing.

PSM has brought together students, school and college teachers, scientists, professional experts, writers, workers, farmers, political activists and thinkers on a single platform.

For more information on the history and work of PSM, read The Messengers of Science
by R. Ramachandran, an article in Frontline, Vol:21 Issue 3, Feb. 13, 2004
