HOMI BHABHA

Atomic Energy the Only Foundation

The consumption of energy in the world is on the increase. Naturally available resources of energy like coal and oil are on the decrease. Added to this, there is shortage of hydel energy in certain places. Realizing this, Bhabha declared that atomic energy is the only foundation for the progress of industries in India. He suggested that producing electricity
could effect economy by nuclear methods.

Electronic instrumentation is required in all spheres of atomic energy work. Bhabha
prepared blueprints for various projects relating to electronic instruments. Nuclear
instruments worth a few millions are fabricated at Trombay every year. At present Trombay turns out over 2,000 electronic instruments annually. They include radiation survey meters, amplifiers and spectrometers.

The Electronic Corporation of India also manufactures many electronic instruments. All this has been possible because of the far-sightedness of Bhabha.
