SCIENTOONICS COMPLETED 11 YEARS OF EXISTENCE IN THIS WORLD

On this day i.e. December 5 in 2006, I announced SCIENTOONICS as a novel science for science communication in Dr Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. I celebrated this historical day today by cutting a cake in the UGC Human Resource Development Center, Lucknow University, Lucknow with around 60 Asstt. Professors and Associate Professors from across the country. I had coined the word scientoon in the year 1988 on 26th May while delivering a lecture in National University of Singapore, Singapore. My friend Gaurav and Mohit (DanaPani) gave this idea and they bought the cake also. Gaurav's brief speech got very good attention.
