उन्होंने बताया कि बताया कि विज्ञान और प्रौद्योगिकी असली शक्ति है। इसमें सभी मनुष्यों की समस्याओं और चुनौतियों को हल करने की क्षमता है। लेकिन इस क्षमता की खोज नहीं की जा रही है। मनुष्य विज्ञान का दुरुपयोग करने में व्यस्त है। दुख की बात यह है कि मनुष्य का ध्यान लाभकारी प्रकृति द्वारा दिए गए इन अद्भुत संसाधनों में से घातक परमाणु हथियार बनाने पर है।
प्रदूषण, पर्यावरणीय गिरावट इत्यादि से संबंधित सभी समस्याओं को विज्ञान का उपयोग करके हल किया जा सकता है। दुनिया के सभी शहरों को विज्ञान का उपयोग करके स्मार्ट शहरों में परिवर्तित किया जा सकता है। विषाक्त गैसों को उत्सर्जित करने वाले सभी वाहनों को विज्ञान का उपयोग करके शून्य उत्सर्जन वाहनों में परिवर्तित किया जा सकता है। विज्ञान और प्रौद्योगिकी किसी भी देश को तेजी से विकसित करने में मदद कर सकती है। विज्ञान कृषि, बागवानी, प्रदूषण नियंत्रण, बिजली उत्पादन, शिक्षा, रक्षा क्षेत्र, अंतरिक्ष अन्वेषण इत्यादि में सुधार करने में मदद कर सकता है। हमें समस्याओं का सामना करने के लिए विज्ञान का उपयोग करना चाहिए।

Dr. R.Kumar senior eye specialist and President of the society, who was the principal speaker said that the focus has to shift from the care of the sick to care of healthy population, so that they don’t fall sick. While India cannot afford the luxury of medical or surgical treatment, the only option for us is to go for PRESERVATION of health by following healthy habits and proper life style. We do not have to be medicine minded or test minded but we must be health minded. This is the paradigm shift that is required.
His emphasis was that the people need to think before going to a hospital and they can dwell on the factors that are responsible for making them unwell. These can be things like Smartphone addiction, dehydration, obesity, sleep deprivation, anemia, lack of exercise, over work and over ambition that often lead to stress, sadness and fatigue besides lack of sunlight and inadequate ventilation. He specially castigated wide spread intake of  white poison foods. He also advocated teaching ethics at every stage of education. He appealed to universities to introduce a 4 years course after pre-medical, ’Guide to health and wellness’. A guide will look after the health of 500 persons and will not allow them to fall sick. He will not be called a doctor and will note prescribe any medicine. This will create millions of jobs, increase productivity, improve economy and reduce national expense on disease treatment.
