Tadar Anang given rousing welcome

NAHARLAGUN, Jul 6: Young scientist Tadar Anang was accorded a warm welcome by well-wishers, family and friends at the Naharlaugn railway station this morning on his arrival after participating in the 3rd BRICS Young Scientist Conclave in Durban, South Africa.
Brazil, South Africa and China bagged the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize respectively in the conclave, while Anang won the ‘most promising young innovator’ award. The award carries a certificate and a cash prize of 1000 US dollars.
Sharing his experiences at the conclave, Anang said he was among 10 participants from Brazil, Russia, China and South Africa.
“It was a privilege to represent my state and country at the conclave. Representing our state and country on an international platform was something worth more than any prize,” he said.
“It was a really tough competition for me,” Anang added. “In fact, I was the youngest participant at the event. Winning and losing is just a part of the event; more important is what we learn from the experience.”
He extended gratitude to Science & Technology Parliamentary Secretary Tapuk Taku, Chairman Bamang Mangha, Director CD Mungyak, Bangalore-based National Innovation Foundation and National Institute of Advance Study, Minister Bamang Felix, Itanagar science curator Dr Vivek Kumar, media persons, family members and others who extended support in his time of need.
