BANDALORE, IndiaFormer Republic of India President APJ Abdul Kalam visited Sami Labs, the production arm of Sabinsa, on June 29, and discussed the relevance of ancient Indian science to modern techniques.
In his remarks, Kalam expressed his appreciation of the efforts of young scientists in validating Ayurvedic knowledge with modern clinical documentation for health, personal care and cosmeceutical benefits.
“It is a great privilege to address the distinguished members of the Sami Group who've gathered here this morning," he said. “One key aspect of science is to help people live a good life and not just be limited to inventions. While we have progressed on the lines of science and developed products on every front, it is time now that we also realize the contribution of nature to these inventions and work in natural harmony."
Kalam spoke alongside Muhammed Majeed, founder and managing director of Sabinsa and Sami Labs to more than 300 Sami Labs staff members, including 150 scientists involved in specialized work relating to phytochemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry and plant biotechnology.
