First-ever Hindi atlas on Mars Mission released

New Delhi, Oct 26 (UNI) Union Minister of state for Atomic Energy and Space Jitendra Singh released the first-ever Hindi atlas on India's Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) here today.
Releasing the book at the first meeting of reconstituted “Joint Hindi Salahkar Samiti” of the Departments of Space and Atomic Energy, the minister stated that ''during the past 18 months as a result of active impetus and encouragement from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India’s space programme has registered some of the unprecedented and landmark achievements which have placed India as a frontline nation in the world.
Even though India’s achievements in space missions were being appreciated the world over, he felt that Hindi language could serve as a medium for spreading further awareness within the country about recent space missions, particularly the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM).
''MOM is totally indigenous, living up to the PM’s 'make in India' initiative and at the same time has provided useful information which is being shared by even the most advanced nations of the world,'' he pointed out.
He appreciated the efforts of both the departments for coming up with Hindi periodicals and booklets to popularise projects and programmes undertaken by them and suggested involving Hindi scholars, who are non-official members of 'Hindi Salahkar Samiti', with the day-to-day activities of both the departments.
In the years ahead, Dr Jitendra Singh felt that ''as India’s space technology and atomic energy programmes attract more and more scientific researchers from other parts of the world, the use of Hindi language among Indian scientists will also become a motivation for foreign scientists to pick up working Hindi for easier communication with their Indian counterparts.'' Promotion of Hindi as a medium of instruction in scientific departments like space technology and atomic energy, will also provide the best of the young scientific
minds in India, an opportunity to contribute their talent.
A S Kiran Kumar, Secretary, Department of Space and Chairman, Space Commission and ISRO Chairman Dr Sekhar Basu, Secretary, Department of Atomic Energy and Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission and senior scientists from both the departments and learned Hindi scholars were present on the occasion, an official release here said.
