I work in the Chemicals Industry.

Chemistry is fun but there needs to be a collective effort by the industry, the educational institutions, the research institutes and other chemistry enthusiasts to help regain the glory that 'Chemistry' and 'Chemicals' have lost!

One cannot imagine a day without chemicals and what chemistry has done for the mankind, yet the industry is percieved as unsafe and hazardous. This is resulting in people running away from the industry!

There is a need do create platforms and avenues that can give chemistry its due, encourage more research and create enthusiasts who would fuel innovations in times to come.
