It is impossible for one to be internationalist without being a nationalist. Internationalism is possible only when nationalism becomes a fact, i.e. when peoples belonging to different countries have organized themselves and are able to act as one man. It is not nationalism that is evil, it is the narrowness, selfishness, exclusiveness which is the bane of modern nations which is evil. Each wants to profit at the expense of, and rise on the ruin of, the other.

Indian nationalism has struck a different path. It wants to organize itself or to find full self-expression for the benefit and service of humanity at large … God having cast my lot in the midst of the people of India, I should be untrue to my Maker if I failed to serve them. If I do not know how to serve them I shall never know how to serve humanity. And I cannot possibly go wrong so long as I do not harm other nations in the act of serving my country.

SS Vasan – Indian Scientist Behind Coronavirus Vaccine



By GreatGameIndia - February 9, 2020

A team led by an Indian-origin scientist in Australia SS Vasan has grown the first batch of the virus in a laboratory to create a vaccine against the deadly novel coronavirus (nCov), which has claimed more than 600 lives in China and infected 30,000 others.

SS Vasan – Indian Scientist Behind Coronavirus Vaccine

This first batch of the virus was developed in a high-security lab at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia’s leading scientific agency, by SS Vasan and his team.

Vasan’s team got a from the major breakthrough at Melbourne’s Doherty Institute, where scientists grew a sample of coronavirus in the lab. Researchers at Doherty Institute were able to isolate the virus from a human sample.

CSIRO’s work is of high importance as it takes a high scale to conduct preclinical trials.

“Undertaken at our secure Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) high-containment facility, our research will help to determine the characteristics of the current virus – a key step in developing a new vaccine,” CSIRO said in a statement.

“The research aims to paint a clearer picture of the new coronavirus, including how long it takes to develop and replicate, how it impacts on the respiratory system and how it can be transmitted,” it added.

A Rhodes scholar at the University of Oxford, Vasan is an alumnus of Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani and Bengaluru’s Indian Institute of Science (IISc).

Vasan has also worked on dengue, zika and chikungunya prior to nCov.

Reports said that CSIRO scientists are aiming to hit a 16-week deadline to test a vaccine for the coronavirus on humans, with any vaccine first tested on ferrets.
