Every year May 11th is celebrated as National Technology Day.
National Technology Day is celebrated to commemorate the technological advancements by our country. This day is very special one in Indian history as many great achievements were registered on the day.
Why do we celebrate the day?
- The very first indigenous aircraft named ‘Hansa -3’ was flown today from Bangalore on this day
- Indian scientists had performed successful test firing of the Trishul missile.
- Three successful nuclear tests were carried out at Pokhran, in Rajasthan.
The theme for this year’s Technology Day is ‘ Technology enablers of Startup India ’ .
On this day, many events and competitions are held in institutes and other places. National Technological Awards are bestowed on several companies for their contribution to science and technology.
Our honorable PM who is an ardent tech user himself, took to Twitter to send out his greetings to the citizens of India.
We thank all the scientists and technologists for their stellar contributions in the field and for making our world a better place to live in.
We hope that soon hinterlands of India too get empowered and reap the benefits of technology.
