Good morning Honourable Judges, Respected Teachers and my dear friends, Science and Technology today, are a synonym for life, every aspect of it is governed by science. The mechanization has reduced human beings to robots. Our activities, our action, even our thoughts are scientific now.

Journey by land, sea and air has been made easier, more comfortable, quicker and safer. About a thousand miles an hour is a common thing. We can travel under the sea, in the air, on the land and now across millions of miles through space.

Internet, Computer, Telephone, Television, Telescope, Telegraph, Tele printer, Communication satellites, Aeroplanes, Submarines, magnificent dignified Ocean Liners, Printing presses, cloth mills and other modern factories are some of the marvels of modern age which have revolutionized travel, communication, and life styles.
