This book outlines the development currently underway in the technology of new media and looks further to examine the unforeseen effects of this phenomenon on our culture, our philosophies, and our spiritual outlook.

The new media are transforming our definitions of culture and knowledge and transcending barriers in ways that will have lasting implications for generations to come.
This is a compendium of the speeches of the Presidents of the Indian Science Congress Association (ISCA) from 1914-2003. Through the years, these Presidents have inspired the Congress by their speeches-some of them visionary, some impassioned in their plea for Science, but all of them with a message that Science must be used for the good of the human race.
