CSIR-National Institute of Science Communication and Policy Research (NIScPR) has a glorious legacy of 70 years in science communication and building scientific temper among diverse stakeholders. The Institute has been actively involved in the conservation and promotion of traditional knowledge through its various activities such as the publication of ‘Indian Journal of Traditional Knowledge’ and its various previous acclaimed projects such as ‘Wealth of India’, a monumental documentation of India’s flora, fauna and minerals, and ‘Traditional Knowledge Digital Library’.
In continuation to these efforts for conservation and promotion of traditional knowledge of India,CSIR-NIScPR has launched a national initiative SVASTIK(Scientifically Validated Societal Traditional Knowledge) for communicating India’s traditional knowledge to the society. The initiative was launched upon the clarion call of our Hon’ble Prime Minister and President, CSIR Society, Shri Narendra Modi. As a part of this initiative, simplified creative content on traditional knowledge/practices of India with a scientific basis is being disseminated in various Indian languages on all popular social media platforms.
Millets are a diverse group of cereal crops characterised by their small seeds. They exhibit strong adaptability to arid climatic conditions and possess low water and input requirements. With a long history of cultivation in India, millets have emerged as one of the country’s major agricultural products. These ancient crops have been deeply ingrained in our dietary practices for centuries, offering a wide range of health benefits.
The United Nations has recognised the significance of millets by declaring 2023 as the International Year of Millets. Millets being a nutritionally rich and health-enhancing food source have played an integral role in shaping our diverse culinary heritage pan India.
With the aim to create awareness and promote production and consumption of millets, NIScPR-SVASTIK and MyGov are inviting traditional recipes made from millets and their ingredients through the activity “Share Your Traditional Millet Recipe and Ingredients”.
You can contribute to the documentation of regional millet recipes and ingredients by taking part in this activity. This activity allows participants to share knowledge and a picture of traditional millet recipes and ingredients.
