The Tibetan Scientific Society's (TSS's) second Science Conclave enabled the young people, who are studying a range of scientific subjects at universities and colleges across India, to meet some of the leading scientists in their fields, at the city's Dalai Lama Institute of Higher studies
TSS secretary, Tenzin Passang, who is studying for a PhD in Physics at the University of Mysore, said: "we would like to provide a platform for young Tibetan students pursuing science and create the possibility of meeting with good scientists in various scientific fields.
"The response from the participants was overwhelming. They took great interest in the programmes and asked very good questions to the people we invited. At times we found it difficult to entertain all the questions.
Tenzin Samdup, a graduate science student from Bangalore who attended the conclave for the first time, said: "I got some ideas about how one conducts research and all the steps involved in research work.
"All the executive members were easy to approach, and I really gained something beyond the subject which I am studying.
"It was an eye opener."
