Singing of anthem is not enough. We must build India.
There are many ways to do so.. One way is to spread
science at popular level... Science has applications in
food, clothes, houses, medicines and so on. Science
helps us to be analytical about social customs. Many
science-based networks like phones & railways, have
unified India. Even then, science needs popularization. 
Many do that work.. Marathi Vidnyan Parishad (MVP)
is one of them. It uses mainly Marathi language. Visit
their web  (www.mavipamumbai.org) in Marathi, some
part in English.... Science lovers are requested to join
MVP in its activities and extend funding suport.. MVP
