VIKRAMA SARABHAI

Greatness Recognized

Usually the President of the All India Textile Research Association would not be a mill owner. Sarabhai belonged to a mill owner's family. But yet, in 1955 the members of the Association requested Sarabhai to be their President.

In 1956, the Productivity Congress met in Japan. The Indian Government selected him as the leader of the Indian delegation. He was only 37; and he was the first Indian to attend this Congress.

The only institution which reviews the progress of science in this country is the Indian Science Congress. Sarabhai presided over the Physics Section of the Conference in 1962. Very few have achieved such a distinction at the age of 40.

The Government of India awarded the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Medal in Physics to Sarabhai in 1962. In 1966 he received the Padma Bhushan Award. In the same year he was appointed as the Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission. When he was the Chairman he prepared a master plan for the development of Atomic Energy and Space Research for the decade 1970-80. In 1968, the United Nations organized a Conference on Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space. Sarabhai was the Chairman. After his death, the Government conferred on him, in 1972, the title of Padma Vibhushan.
