Vijnana Bharati or VIBHA is a national movement dedicated to the integrated development of Bharat through the intervention of science, engineering and technology. Launched in 1991 by a group of thinkers and scientists, VIBHA has, today, 29 active units and 6 overseas units. Eminent scientists, academicians, policy makers and social workers are the torch bearers of this movement.
VIBHA takes the spirit of ‘Swadeshi’ along with the ethos of our culture. It emphasizes that science and spirituality should go hand in hand. VIBHA works towards rural development, technology transfer, and social empowerment so as to bring the fruits of advancement of science and technology for the benefit of the society.
It has received two national awards for popularizing science and technology: one in 2006 from Dr Manmohan Singh, Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, and the other in 2007 from Mr Kapil Sibal, Hon’ble Minister for Science and Technology, Government of India.
