Vikram Sarabhai Centenary Celebrations
Delve a little deeper into the life of the father of Indian Space Programme on the occasion of Vikram Sarabhai Centenary Celebrations.
Welcome AeroSpace Nerds to the Vikram Sarabhai Centenary Celebrations.
Dr Sarabhai was a scientist, industrialist, manager, institution builder, visionary – all rolled into one. While a lot of us AeroSpace nerds recognise his prowess in building the ISRO, you would be astonished to know the vast diversity of institutions he established. Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Community Science Centre, Darpan Academy for Performing Arts, Operations Research Group, Ahmedabad Textile Industry's Research Association are a few of the institutions which are outside the realm of Science and Technology Research. Although this wide array of institutions would have verified the first statement, let us delve a little deeper into the life of the father of the Indian Space Programme.

Vikram A Sarabhai Centenary Program
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is also having Vikram Sarabhai Centenary Celebrations. Vikram A Sarabhai Centenary Program is the name given to the celebrations. Events are lined up for the whole year ending on 12th August 2020. But the biggest resource is the compilation books, brochures, and newly designed stickers and posters. These resources have served as a valuable resource for the above series of articles.
