In a country like ours which is not only the largest democracy of the world but also a true secular nation where all the religions, cultures, languages, castes, communities and traditions co exist incidents and attempts of creating controversies on the minority verses majority basis by unnecessarily raking up history of centuries, should be dealt with severely. Similarly, any attempt to create divisions on the caste, communal or religious lines should be democratically countered.

The incident of the President’s address in the Karnataka Assembly the other day, is in the news these days with certain politicians, particularly a minister at the centre representing Karnataka trying to create unnecessary controversies on Honourable President Ram Nath Kovind’s address downgrading him, rather, allegedly amounts to constitutional breach.

It may be recalled that the newly elected President of India at the behest of the BJP n NDA, Ram Nath Kovind had the other day while addressing the joint house of Karnataka Assembly, earlier Mysore, has lauded the then King of Mysore Tipu Sultan as a Hero who fought the Britishers most valiantly and sacrificed his life in the war against the British.

He even appreciated Tipu Sultan calling him a hostoric figure who invented indigenous rockets then used against the British army to enable them bite the dust. This indeginous rocket technology was later on used to develop hi tech rockets by the Europeans, the president added. The British Army got defeated against Tipu who finally died while fighting them most valiantly and relentlessly on the battlefield .

One of the BJP ministers’ had raised serious objections on the praise of Tipu by Honourable President and termed the former as anti Hindu, the traitor and rapist saying that the honorable President had to praise Tipu Sultan as the speech was prepared by the Karnataka government praising Tipu Sultan as a Heroic figure than the traitor who according to this BJP minister was an anti Hindu traitor and rapist. Sounds shocking to pass such public comments against the constitutional head of the country.

The point is our honourable president is a qualified and well read personality who had been a practising lawyer in Delhi High Court and apex court of India before being appointed as the governor of Bihar. Casting such objectionable comments on the speech of the constitutional head of the state to gather cheap publicity and downgrading his stature by belying or underminig his statement is a serious intentional lapse and should be dealt with severely in party forum.

The president is the first citizen of the country and carries a veto power. Therefore no lawmaker either MP, Minister, MLA or even PM could pass derogatory comment on his speech. One must also not forget that after assuming the pivotal office of president of India the first citizen no more remains the nominee of any party.

Our learned politicians of the country should therefore exercise restraint while raking up the historical issues that are now several centuries old and march ahead towards peace, amity and hi tech development of our secular nation with renewed energy, potential and enthusiasm. It is high time that our politicians and political parties should give up medieval and orthodox mindset and constructively move forward towards the 21st century.

Many scientific presentations miss out on impressing the audience due to their inappropriate data, complex language of the text in the presentation and their focusing on what to say rather than knowing about their audience’s listening interests. Your overall presentation wholly depends on two things: the way you present it and the content that you use in your presentation slides.

Engaging your audience in the information that you are delivering and giving that in a dynamic manner is the key concern. If you really want to have a Good Scientific talk and an effective Scientific Visual Aid, here are some of the points for you to keep in your mind:

1) Confident and Knowledgeable Speaker

The speaker must be confident and knowledgeable enough to speak in front of such a vast audience. Many listeners/ viewers are not even interested in reading the content written in the presentation, they wholly depend on the speaker for this. Thus, whatever the speaker says must be right and to the point.

2)  Sequenced Material

All the content that you show should be done in a sequencing manner.

ŸThe presentation should start with a lead paragraph that includes the introduction of the topic. It should contain the main information of the topic.

Ÿ Then is the body which includes the explanation of the lead paragraph and all the major solutions to the problems discussed in the introduction.

Ÿ Lastly, the conclusion is the ending of the presentation. It also includes the overview of the whole presentation briefly.

3) See your audience while speaking

Remember, you are talking to your audience and not to the presentation screen. Look at your audience while talking and interact with them. Even if you need to see the points on the screen, just have a look on them and turn back to the audience while giving that information. The more you interact with the audience, the more interested they get in the scientific talk.

4) Graphics are very important

Graphics are of key concern in the presentations. The Font Size used in the content of your slides should be big enough and bold to be visible to the audience sitting at the back also. Colourful illustrations and cartoons are creative and interesting, thus they should be used. Avoid useless Graphics and the graph (if needed) should be easy and clear to be understood.

5) Humour also works

In order to seek the audience’s attention and not make the presentation boring use humorous punching lines in between the speech and the presentation. Jokes relax the audience and make a great impact in their minds as they understand the information quite easily through these.

In the major Scientific and medical communities, giving effective presentations play a vital role. Powerful presentations are one of the most important ways of sharing your achievements and information with your audience in a professional manner. If your presentations are effective, it means you are able to cater and involve a huge number of audiences in your views, opinions as well as the information. Keeping the upper points in mind, you can deliver an effective scientific presentation to a number of people.
