About Quiz

India has a rich legacy of practices and traditional knowledge touching different spheres of life across various Science & Technology (S&T) domains. Indian traditional knowledge is available in various forms such as classical texts, manuscripts and/or oral communication for thousands of years. Some of the traditional practices are livelihood means of the concerned knowledge holders. Indian traditional practices exist in synergy between human needs and nature. Traditional heritage is an integral part of any country’s development and progression.

भारत में कार्यप्रणाली एवं पारम्परिक ज्ञान की एक समृद्ध विरासत रही है जो विभिन्न विज्ञान एवं प्रौद्योगिकी (वि. और प्रौ.) ज्ञान-क्षेत्र द्वारा जीवन के विविध क्षेत्रों को प्रभावित करती है। भारतीय पारम्परिक ज्ञान विभिन्न प्रारूपों यथा शास्त्रीय पाठ्य-सामाग्री, पाण्डुलिपि और मौखिक संवाद में हजारों वर्षों से उपलब्ध है। कुछ पारम्परिक पद्धतियाँ, संबंधित विषय के विशेषज्ञों के जीवकोपार्जन की स्रोत हैं। भारतीय पारम्परिक ज्ञान प्रणाली में मानव आवश्यकताओं और प्रकृति के बीच एक समन्वयन स्थापित है।            


Under the visionary leadership of our Hon’ble Prime Minister and President, CSIR Society, Shri Narendra Modi, the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is spearheading the efforts to collaborate with the relevant partners from across the country. SVASTIK (Scientifically Validated Societal Traditional Knowledge) is a national initiative for communicating India’s traditional knowledge to society. CSIR-National Institute of Science Communication and Policy Research (CSIR-NIScPR) is the nodal organization to implement this national initiative to instil confidence in citizens regarding the scientific values of our traditional knowledge/practices. As a part of this initiative, simplified creative content on traditional knowledge/practices of India with a scientific basis is being disseminated in various Indian languages on all popular social media platforms. 

पारम्परिक ज्ञान किसी भी राष्ट्र के विकास एवं प्रगति का महत्वपूर्ण हिस्सा होता है। माननीय प्रधानमंत्री एवं अध्यक्ष सीएसआईआर-सोसायटी, श्री नरेंद्र मोदी के कुशल नेतृत्व में वैज्ञानिक तथा औद्योगिक अनुसंधान परिषद (सीएसआईआर) ने पूरे देश से संबंधित साझेदारों के साथ सहयोग स्थापित करने का एक महत्वपूर्ण प्रयास किया है।  स्वस्तिक ( SVASTIK- साइंटिफिकली वैलिडेटेड सोसाइटल ट्रडीशनल नॉलेज) एक राष्ट्रीय अभियान है जिसका उद्देश्य भारत के पारम्परिक ज्ञान को समाज तक पहुंचाना है। सीएसआईआर-राष्ट्रीय विज्ञान संचार एवं नीति अनुसंधान संस्थान (सीएसआईआर-निस्पर) एक नोडल संगठन है जो इस राष्ट्रीय पहल का क्रियान्यवन कर रहा है, यह वैज्ञानिक मूल्यों तथा हमारी ज्ञानपद्धति/ज्ञानप्रणाली के संबंध में नागरिकों के विश्वास को प्रगाढ़ बना रहा है। इस मुहिम के एक भाग के रूप में, भारत की ज्ञानपद्धति/कार्यप्रणाली को वैज्ञानिक आधार के साथ सरल एवं सृजनपरक पाठ्य-सामाग्री के रूप में विभिन्न भारतीय भाषाओं में लोकप्रिय सोशल मीडिया प्लेटफॉर्म [@NIScPR_SVASTIK] के द्वारा उपलब्ध कराया जा रहा है।
