My Science Blog

I also have another blog named "Question Everything" www.QuestionEverything.in. It's an initiative to promote the culture of questioning and nurturing scientific temper in our society.

My experience in education policy advocacy made me realize that the final mile of education, promoting critical thinking,  can't happen unless we promote such culture in the society as a whole. The traits of subservience to authority and an in general discouragement to question, especially if it goes against deeply held beliefs, percolate into education too, creating hurdles in the process of nurturing critical thinking. It's not something that can be solved by merely getting governance right. It needs a social reform, which encourages people to shed dogma by aiming the gun of reason towards their deeply held beliefs. Hence this initiative.

You can find more details about the initiative in its "About" page.
