Use satellite connectivity to promote villages: ISRO Chief - Sathish - 03-07-2009

KOZHIKODE: India has made giant strides in space technology, but the need of the hour is to promote villages using satellite connectivity, said Mr G Madhavan Nair, Chairman, ISRO. “We have achieved a lot in space.... but our concern is about our villages , where over 70 per cent of our population lives,'' he said.

The young generation should develop a mindset for developing villages, study their problems, using available satellite connectivity and remote sensing application. “Our technical expertise should now throw focus on training youth to develop villages fast er so that our country could develop rapidly,'' he said.

Mr Nair said he takes pride on ISRO's behalf for launch of Chandrayaan-I and pointed out that the organisation was also engaged in other activities like tele-medicine and tele-education to benefit society. – PTI
