A brief history of the Indian Association for the cultivation of science. Conclusion. "In this collection of essays, an assessment has been made of the life and work of Dr. Mahendralal Sircar, the founder of the Indian association for the cultivation of science, the first of its kind to promote national science in India. National science has been used here to mean science for national reconstruction as distinct from colonial science introduced in India by British rule for colonial purpose. "This is not a biography of Dr. Sircar. It evaluates his contributions to national science, popular science and his attitude to religion. In between his life,the history of the IACS and its legacy have been thrown in to make it a full study of Dr. Sircar's life and work in the English language for the first time."
