Gadgil’s call for Indian science to rise and contribute towards building a symbiotic society is a step forward to initiate the debate on ‘why we are, where we are?’. This questions the basic scientific temperament of Indian educational institutions, which are said to be the reflection of society at large. But, if, educational institutions are buying this argument, then they do not stand the ground to serve as a moral force of change to create a better society of tomorrow, which is the motto of almost all educational institutions. Definitely, a paradox to explore and explain.
