Narsampet (Warangal Rural): Science and technology play a vital role in day to day life, Warangal Rural Zilla Parishad Chairperson Gandra Jyothi said. Speaking at the 47th Jawaharlal Nehru District Level Science, Mathematics and Environmental Exhibition 2019, held at Abdul Kalam Pranganam, Siddartha High school, at Chennaraopet on Tuesday, she said students must draw inspiration from towering personalities like great scientist and former President of India, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, who had designed missiles of great precision to protect the country from enemies.
She emphasised the need for being self-sufficient and strong in the field of science and technology to ensure the growth of the country on par with the global standards.

Terming students as future scientists, he urged the teachers to hone the skills of children right from the tender age.
