Logo

logo 600The Design of the logo looks like a Lotus, a symbol of regeneration or a flame. If we see it from a particular angle, it also looks like 'OM', the Supreme Word. The three green bars are symbolic representation of three holy peaks of Trikuta Hills and / or the three 'pindies' in Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine. The Sun, the giver of Light, Warmth, Time, Direction, Life Force, Energy, Power, Radiance and Enlightenment have been shown surrounded by radiating rays going out to nine planets of the Solar System. All this is , however, left to the imagination of the viewer.

The English version of the motto is "GOD (BHRAMA) IS SCIENCE". 'Bhrama' has been defined as something or someone who nourishes the universe and makes it grow. Science matches the definition wonderfully because science over the years has also done the same. If the world population is any indication, science has done very well indeed. We have not only become the dominant species, we also have grown to an unprecedented numbers. Moreover, the reach of the modern scientists has spread much beyond the sun and the moon and they are now eyeing the far-reaches of the universe from where even the light takes years and centuries to reach the earth. Science has given man god-like powers to create and destroy and so for he has used these powers more or less responsibly. Let us hope the good sense continues to prevail and the mankind continues to expand the boundaries of Human Knowledge, so that science and the spirituality ultimately meet in a confluence of superhuman achievements.
