Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday conferred the “Kalinga Samman 2014” on physicist and Padma awardee Trilochan Pradhan for popularising science among the common man.

“Pradhan is considered an iconic personality and role model for others in the field of advanced scientific research, particularly in the field of physical sciences. The next generation should follow his ideals to spread the wings of scientific temper so that the common man gets the benefits of scientific and technological developments,” Patnaik said.

Since 2010, the Kalinga Foundation Trust has been presenting the Kalinga Samman to people who have contributed to the growth and popularisation of science and technology in Odisha.

So far, six outstanding people, including Pradhan, have been awarded, said Patnaik.

“Continuous innovation in science and technology has greatly moulded our lifestyle. Science is a powerful instrument which can bring enduring solutions to our crucial socio- economic and environmental challenges,” the chief minister said.
