The event was also graced by Fr. E Abraham, S. J. Director of XLRI and Dr. Ashis K. Pani, Dean (Academics), XLRI and Dr. Madhukar Shukla, Chairperson, Fr. Arrupe Center for Ecology & Sustainability, XLRI.

 

In his address, Dr. Jean Dreze said, “Over four decades I have observed that India needs many more people’s scientists and people’s technicians like Dr. Kurien who take interest in everyday technology and people’s basic needs and not just sophisticated technology like biometrics and artificial intelligence. The consequence of this disinterest and lack of innovation in everyday technology is a remarkable stagnation of everyday technologies and correspondingly the existence of whole range of occupations that may be described as stagnant occupations because they are more or less the same functionality that used to be for many decades. The entire rural sector, for example in Jharkhand, is lost in that kind of stagnant occupation despite having so much local resources for example mushrooms, honey, tendu, mahua, etc. To improve people’s livelihood and well-being, without causing the sort of environmental destruction that we are witnessing today we need many more Dr. Kuriens”.
