0100 PREAMBLE

Indian Social Science Academy (ISSA) organizes Indian Social Science Congress (ISSC) every year with a view to discovering, developing and disseminating science of Nature-Human-Society through critical appraisal and integration of current research and theory in all subjects of science taught and researched in Indian Universities, Colleges, IITs, IIITs, NITs, Regional Engineering Colleges, Medical Colleges, AIIMS, PGIs, NISERS, ISERS, CSIR, ICAR, ICPR, ICMR, ICSSR and ICHR . Institutes/Laboratories for making India and its peoples creative, self-reliant, prosperous, healthy and happy while living in peace and harmony with Nature.

0200 HISTORY

Indian Social Science Academy (originally, Indian Academy of Social Sciences ) was established on August 15, 1974 with its headquarters at Allahabad with a view to creating new science of Nature-Human-Society in India capable of creating new democratic Republic of India free from hunger, disease, ignorance, discrimination , oppression of man by man. Two years later it began organizing National Science Congress. It named it Indian Social Science Congress. First Indian Social Science Congress was held from February 15 to 17, 1976 at Allahabad. Since then it has been held at different universities, details of which are given on p 53. The 40th session of the Indian Social Science Congress was held from December 19-23, 2016 at University of Mysore, Mysuru and the 41st session of it was held from Dec 18 to 22, 2017 at Periyar University, Salem. The 42nd Indian Social Science Congress was held from December 27 to 31, 2018 at Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology, Bhubaneswar. Each ISSC has a focal theme, details of which are given on p 53.

All subjects/disciplines of science of Nature-Humans-Society are represented in Indian Social Science Congress. There are 28 Research Committees and 21 Interdisciplinary Thematic Panels in it.

Word Science in Indian Social Science Congress is prefixed with social as it is the result of collective mental and physical labour. It is without any boundary and, is indivisible. Indian Social Science Congress, therefore, is ,indeed, science congress in true sense.

University Grants Commission recognizes Indian Social Science Congress on par with Indian Science Congress with distinction of having great potentiality for development of new indigenous science and technology needed for self-reliant national development. Every session of Indian Social Science Congress has a focal theme.

Focal Theme (2019-2020)

0100 PREAMBLE

Indian Social Science Academy and Bengaluru Central University have resolved to focus deliberations of the 43rd Indian Social Science Congress on ‘Current Science of Nature-Human-Society in India’ with a view to determining nature and extent of connection/correlation between the nationals goals of self-reliant growth, removal of poverty, hunger, disease, ignorance, illiteracy, discrimination, oppression , rapes, murders, violence, inequality and making India a truly secular Democratic Republic having strong pillars of equality ,freedom, fraternity and social justice, where all Indians irrespective of their class, caste, creed , gender and region are seen enjoying equally high order of material, social and cultural life.

0200 CONTEXT

Indian Parliament passed a Scientific Policy Resolution (SPR) in 1958 with a sole object of making India self-reliant on its own Science and Technology. Realizing the connection between Science, Technology and problems of poverty, hunger, disease, etc and the liberating power of science, the parliament assigned primary role to science and scientists for making Democratic Republic of India a truly democratic, prosperous,modern nation having no trace of colonial poverty, hunger, ignorance, disease, discrimination,exploitation, rich and poor divide, etc. New Universities, Institutes and Laboratories were established. Managers of Science and Technology declared India having third largest manpower in Science and Technology in the world in 1970s. It was, then, said that India was far ahead of China in Science and Technology. How is science and Technology today? Managers of Science and Technology no longer speak about it.

In 1983, the Government of India instead of Parliament issued Technology Policy Statement in lieu of Technology policy. In early 2000 the Government of India started creating new science education institutes naming Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, National Institute of Science Education and Research in different parts of India. Department of Science and Technology launched new programmes of incentivisation of science education and research between 2006-10. These were designed to attract young scientists. DST also offered fellowships to those who had migrated to USA and had done well in science there.

Democratic Republic of India converted Imperial Council of Industrial Research into Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and Imperial Council of Agricultural Research into Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR). It also setup Indian Council of Medical Research and several research institutes within it. Later in late 1960s and early 1970s Indian Council of Social Science Research, Indian Council of Philosophical Research and Indian Council of Historical Research were established.

All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) was established as the premier referral and research institute. Later on Post Graduate Medical Institutes (PGI) were established in Chandigarh, Pondicherry and Lucknow. Since then several AIIMS and PGI’s have been established all over India.

Indian Institute of Technology was setup at Kharagpur, Kanpur, Madras (now Chennai) and Bombay (now Mumbai) and later on several IITs have been set up all over India.

Three Science Academies, namely, Indian National Science Academy (INSA), National Academy of Science India (NASI) and Indian Science Academy(ISA) were established during British rule, Fourth Science Academy, Indian Academy of Social Sciences (now Indian Social Science Academy ,(ISSA) was established on August 15, 1974 in order to bring all subjects of Nature-Human-Society under one umbrella and give a new direction to Science and Technology in consonance with the democratic needs, aspirations and creative urges of people of India. Also, Agricultural Science Academy, Engineering Science Academy and Medical Science Academy were established in 1980’s.

Democratic Republic of India setup several educational commissions (Mudaliar Commission, , Kothari Commission, etc.) with a view to replacing British colonial education system by a new democratic education system in tune with new democratic aspirations of peoples of India. “Education for all”, “Free Universal Education” and “Health for All” became the new slogans.

Indian Science Congress Association was established in 1914 by the Indian scientists in British India who also established Association for Cultivation of Science. Indian Academy of Social Science, (now Indian Social Science Academy) began organizing Indian Social Science Congress in 1976. It was a new milestone in the ream of science as it brought all subjects of science of Nature-Human society together and termed science as social and indivisible.It was a unique endeavour to break the current divisions in science and promote the true social nature of scientific knowledge called science of Nature-Human society. Also, there are national, regional and local subject associations of all subjects including languages. Hindi Sahitya Akademi and Lalit Kala Academy too were established.

Jamshedji Tata setup Indian Institiute of Science at Banglore (now Bengaluru). Later on he also setup Tata Institute of Fundamental Research and Tata Institute of Social Science at Bombay (now Mumbai). Government of India established Atomic Research Centre (now Bhabha Atomic Research Centre) after independence. Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) too was established.

NCERT was established for improving education in Schools. Later each state established State Council of Education, Research and Training (SCERT).

A new Commission called University Grants Commission (UGC) was established by the Parliament.UGC was set up to coordinate and maintain standards in higher education. Later on the government of India also set up All India Council of Technical Education, National Council of Teachers Education, Council of Architecture, Pharmacy Council, Bar Council and so on. These attempted to coordinate,promote and regulate education in their respective areas.

Government of India established Indian Institute of Advanced Study at Shimla. UGC started establishing Advanced or special Study Centres in good University departments in late 1970s. It also established special institutes for interdisciplinary research in selected universities and inter-university centers in Astrophysicsand Astronomy, Nuclear Science Centre, Consortium of education Communication, Information and library network, and National Assessment and Accreditation Council. All these attempted to promote research in their respective areas.

A process of creating elite science education and Research Institutes began in late 1980’s under the overall leadership of Prof. C.N.R Rao, who has been later on confrerred ‘Bharat Ratna’ award for it. The new institutes were named ‘ National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER) or Institute of Science Education Research (ISER). Science Olmpiyad was added to it. Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education emerged under TFIR in 1980’s.

Later teacherless education,namely, Open education, Distance Education, Open University, Adult Education, Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, etc., were added. A programme called “Operation Black Board” was launched on war footing. Parliament made education the fundamental rights through an Act, though till date it has not been implemented. The World Bank entered Indian Education in early 1980s, although secretely.

With the launching of Structural AdjustmentProgrammes(SAP) called Liberalisation, Privatisation, Globalisation (LPG) in 1991, scene in education changed. Birla-Ambani (the top Indian Industrialists) Report appeared as the new guideline to education in India. Doors of education were wide opened for private players and the corporate world. “Policy of Contract Teaching” on the pattern of “Policy of Contract Labour” in industries and government and Contract Farming in Agriculture was introduced. Thus, began the process of teacherless education and research in Indian Universities, schools, Colleges and Institutions. Coaching Institutions and Online institutions mushroomed all over India, rendering Schools, Colleges and Universities thus redundant.

A process of a making education a saleable commodity, was set into motion by opening the floodgates of privatization. Now corporate capital regulates education.According to Higher Education Survey Report 2017, India has 864 Universities and 40,026 Colleges. Out of 864 universities,330 are Private Universities. Standalone institutions of national importance including number of IITs and AIIMS has multiplied and reached to 100.

It ought to be noted that several patriotic Indians had set up new Universities and Schools in British India. Nanabhai Bhatt Established LokShiksha (Peoples Education) in Amla village in Bhavnagar District of Gujarat. Later he established Lok Gram BharatiVidyapith at Sanosora. Rabindranath Tagore had created wonderful university called Visva -Bharati at Santiniketan in West Bengal. PanditMadan Mohan Malaviya established Kashi Hindu University at Banaras. Sir Syed Ahmad Khan established Aligarh Muslim University at Aligarh. JamiaMilliaIslamia in Delhi came later. Mahatma Gandhi had established GujaratVidyapith in 1918 at Ahmadabad. All these symbolized quest for new democratic education system in opposition to the colonial British Education System.

Question arises: What is status of Science and Technology (S&T) in India today? Is India now self-reliant in S &T? Is Indian S&T superior to European, American and Chinese Science? What is the quality of science Of Nature Human-society in India today? Is science education and research good in India? Is Indian S &T superior or equal to China, USA and Europe? If not, what is wrong with it? What about generation and utilization of scientific manpower? Is the environment for teaching and research in Universities/College/Research Institutes more congenial as compared to 1965-1970. All these and many more questions demand a dispassionate critical and objective appraisal of current science and technology in Democratic Republic of India.-

Did India choose a right path just to follow what is happening in western part of world? What about millions of people who are still working hard to meet two meals, shelter, cloth, education, health and dignity of self. Has our scientific endeavor attempted to solve the problems poverty? Has our science and technology transformed the means of production and distribution in rural areas,? Has our social science addressed the problems through democratic governance? Has our body politics ensured dignified life to women and downtrodden? Is law and order protecting life of weaker sections?

Indian Social Science Academy and Bengaluru Central University , therefore, propose to initiate a process of critical appraisal of current science of Nature-Human-Society in India during its 43rd Indian Social Science Congress.

0300 NECESSITY

Question arises: What is the necessity for such a massive exercise?

Indian Social Science Academy has published many books based on deliberations at Indian Social Science Congress. Some of these are: Impact of Science and Technology, Social Perspective of Development of Science, Generation and Utilization of Indigenous Science and Technology, Microprocessors and Information Technology, Emerging Interfaces of Social Science and Public Policy In India, etc. What appears is alarming,

  1. Quality of research in all subjects of science and technology is declining day by day, It is also devoid of power solving the problems of people at large. It is more focused on verifying/initiating what is being done in developed part of world.
  2. School and University Education systems are in deep crisis. Almost all government schools and Universities are now without required teachers and minded staff.
  3. Critical mass of creative scientists necessary for the country of India is now very low.
  4. Thousands of Ph.D holders are either unemployed or working as a contract teachers. Some are willing to work as fourth grade employee, which too is not available.
  5. UGC supported Advanced Study Centres had either been closed or are on the verge of closure.UGC too is faced with closure. The great universities like Banaras Hindu University and Visva-Bharati are dying.
  6. Almost all Indian Industries continue depending on foreign science and technology even after 70 years of India’s independence. Programmes of digitization of India and ‘Make in India’ are based on imported technology. Bullet train, passenger and fighter planes are imported. Despite huge establishment of DRDO, Indian Defence System continues depending on imported weapons heavily. Even small service products like trolleys at all airports are imported. Though Indian people make all kinds of mats, yet mats for yoga are imported. Even Statues have to be made by foreign sculptures. Crores of youth holding B.Tech, M.Tech degrees are on the road. Parliament seems to be sleeping at its 1958 resolution. If Science and Technology in India has grown as expected, how to explain that only 101billionaires control over 15% of GDP and bottom 50% have only 5% of GDP of Indiaand Indian Poverty?
  7. A new virus of appointment of Vice-Chancellors and Teachers on payment has emerged.

Small and Medium Industries in India Today

The Indian Social Science Academy (ISSA when abbreviated) is the first National Science Academy of independent Democratic Republic of India and fourth in chronicle order. The other three National Science Academies―Indian National Science Academy (INSA), Indian Academy of Sciences (IAS) and National Science Academy of India (NSAI) were born in British India. ISSA was born, 44 years ago, on August 15, 1974 at University of Allahabad in an assembly of young scientists. August 15, 1974 symbolized a begin-ning of an altogether new science reflecting democratic needs, aspirations, creative urges / potentialities, history, culture and traditions of peoples of India. Its name was carefully chosen for reflecting the true meaning and function of science. The setting up of the Indian Social Science Academy also heralded a be-ginning of a new movement for unity of science of Nature-Humans-Society by forging unity among all branches of science. Many described it as a barometer of science and society in India. In more than one sense ISSA is a unique body in the whole world.

Science means objective knowledge of non-living and living things / objects and knowledge means answer to questions ‘what’, ‘how’ and ‘why’, about a thing / object. The word ‘Nature’ connotes all forms of objects / things / matter including humans and societies. Nature-Humans-Society form one single continuum. So division of science into physics, chemistry, biology, environment, ecology, agriculture, medical, social, historical etc., is artificial and all such divisions provide partial objective knowledge of Nature-Humans-Society. Unity of Science of Nature-Humans-Society, therefore, is necessary for having correct and full understanding of Nature. Science. Science, thus, viewed is unitary as well as uniting.

The Science as an objective knowledge of non-living and living objects / things / matter is produced through collective mental and physical labour of men and women. What is the result of collective labour is termed as social and what is social is public and not private. Science, therefore, is social. It springs in society comprising men and women. Because it is social it has social functions. It has the prime role in enabling men and women to enjoy higher quality of material, social and cultural life in harmony with Nature. However, all such social functions of science filter through different groups in the society because of which one doesn’t find one-to-one relationship between science and conditions of all men and women of all societies. Humans’ inability to create a science-based society is well reflected in modern societies all over the world.

The Indian Social Science Academy seeks to discover, develop and disseminate science of Nature-Humans-Society in Indian conditions in particular, and world conditions in general, with a mission to build a new Democratic Republic of India where there is no hunger, no poverty, no unemployment, no illiteracy, no disease, no bigotry, no superstitions, no communalism, no casteism and no discrimination of any form and where all men, women and children enjoy equally good quality of material, social, cultural and spiritual life in harmony with Nature without any kind of fear of violence, rape and murder.

Founders of the Indian Social Science Academy thought that science can benefit the peoples of a given society only when it is taught and researched in their own language. Communication of scientific research and science education in people’s own language, therefore, is key to the unfolding of creative potentialities of peoples and benefiting them. Unfortunately, even after 70 years of independence science in India is communicated through English. The end result is peoples of India who fund all scientific research are deprived of its benefits. The creativity in science is continuously declining. The Indian Social Science Academy., therefore, seeks to change it by creating necessary conditions for communication of scientific research and science education in Indian languages involving publication of research journals, monographs, books, etc., in Indian languages.

All branches of science as mentioned below constitute the Indian Social Science Academy:

  1. 1. Agricultural Science
  2. Anthropology
  3. Biological or Life Science
  4. Biotechnology
  5. Communication And Journalism
  6. Commerce
  7. Computer Science And Information Technology
  8. Defence And Strategic Studies
  9. Ecological And Environmental Science
  10. Economics
  11. Education
  12. Engineering Science
  13. Geography
  14. Earth Science, Atmospheric Science, Ocean Science And Planetary Science
  15. History And Archaeology
  16. Home Science
  17. International Relations Studies
  18. Juridical Science
  19. Linguistics
  20. Management Science
  21. Mathematics And Statistics
  22. Medical And Health Science
  23. Philosophy
  24. Physical Science
  25. Chemical Science
  26. Political Science
  27. Population Science
  28. Psychology
  29. Social Work
  30. Sociology

Besides, policy planners, development agents and social activists having concern for science-based pursuits also find welcome place in the Indian Social Science Academy. Thus the Indian Social Science Academy is all embracing and all encompassing within the framework of science.

The Indian Social Science Academy pursues the following activities for realizing its goal:

  1. 1. Indian Social Science Congress
  2. Network of State Centres / State level Academies
  3. State level Social Science Congress in languages of respective States
  4. Research and Training Centres
    1. (I) Rural Development Centres
    2. Survey Research Centres
    3. ISSA Silver Jubilee Peoples Science Centre for Theoretical and Policy Research
  5. Research Journals and Newsletters
    1. (I) Bharatiya Samajik Chintan (English)
    2. Samayik Samajik Chintan (Hindi)
    3. ISSA Newsletter
  6. Young Scientist Division
  7. All India Young Scientists Convention
  8. Publication of Books / Monographs in Indian Languages
  9. Communication of Science to the People
  10. Science Library
  11. Local / regional / national / international seminars / symposia / colloquia / public lectures / Group discussions
  12. Networking with universities, colleges, research institutes, agriculture and industries What stands in the way of realization of full potentiality of ISSA is the paucity of financial resources and appropriate infrastructure.
  13. National Science Translation Centre for production of Scientific literature in all Indian languages.

What stands in the way of realization of full potentiality of ISSA is the paucity of financial resources and appropriate infrastructure.
