HMR to develop science corridor between Tarnaka, Nagole

Hyderabad Metro Rail has offered to develop a ‘science corridor’ between Tarnaka and Nagole, where 150 pillars would be made available to CSIR-IICT to depict portraits of Indian scientists, to inspire young brains, said Managing Director N.V.S. Reddy. Addressing a gathering after receiving the prestigious “Dr. Y. Nayudamma Memorial Award for 2019” along with former IT advisor to government T. Hanuman Chowdary at a function organised by Yalavarthy Foundation at IICT on Tuesday, he also agreed to dedicate one of the Metro stations in this corridor to the Chandrayaan mission.

Stating that it was a great honour to receive the award, Mr. Reddy recalled that Dr. Nayudamma was the Vice-Chancellor of Jawaharlal Nehru University when he was a research scholar and was associated with several science and technology research institutes in the country.

Unlike many ‘ivory tower’ scientists, Prof. Nayudamma was a pragmatic scientist looking into solving basic socio-economic problems of ordinary people through technology in a cost effective way. The HMR project too was an innovative project in true Nayudamma tradition, he claimed. Scientist M.S. Swaminathan, oncologist Dattatreyudu and Delhi Metro chief Sreedharan were among the earlier recipients. Nayudamma’s family members and others were present.
