Indian National Technology Day is celebrated on May 11, 2021. The term technology is derived from the Greek words for arts and crafts as well as teaching and science. The original meaning of the word cannot be precisely determined. In Hellenistic Greek it is sometimes used to describe the “systematic treatment of grammar and rhetoric”. More recently, meanings such as “doctrine of craftsmanship” and “science of technology” predominate, but the various conceptual understandings sometimes differ considerably.
In the meantime there has been a certain response to take up the meaning of the word from the 18th century and to define technology as “the science of technology”. According to a suggestion by Johann Beckmann, the term encompasses general technology, i.e. transdisciplinary technology research and engineering, as well as special technologies, the individual technical and scientific disciplines.
India is a state in South Asia that covers most of the Indian subcontinent. India is a federal republic that is formed by 28 federal states and also includes seven federal territories. The Himalaya forms the natural northern border of India, in the south the Indian Ocean encloses the national territory. India borders with Pakistan, the Chinese Autonomous Region of Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar and Bangladesh. Other neighboring states in the Indian Ocean are Sri Lanka and the Maldives. Indian Technology Day is celebrated across India.
