‘Caravane de la Science at Municipal Council of Vacoas/Pheonix’

 It gave me great pleasure today to see so many people of all age groups gathered under one roof taking an interest for science, and to join in the Launching ceremony of the “Caravane de la Science”, organized by the Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre held at the Municipal Council of Vacoas/Pheonix. I thank the Municipality of Vacoas –Phoenix for this initiative and wish them all the success it deserves in promoting science to the region.
