मविप संस्थापक श्री. म. नो. गोगटे

मराठी विज्ञान परिषदेचे संस्थापक श्री. म. ना. गोगटे यांचे दि. ७ मे, २०२२ रोजी वयाच्या ८९व्या वर्षी पुणे येथे वृद्धापकाळाने निधन झाले.

Let me recall the unique privilege I had with MNG. To meet him to know him and work with him was.and is pure professional joy. Dr.MP Parameswaran, MN Gogate and Dr.MPS Ramani used to have meetings conceptualizing Peoples Science Movement at St George School Dadar. FILSA-Federation of Indian Language Science Associations was formed and I was asked to work as its Secretary. His attractive style and persuasively sweet reasonableness at once brought out the sterling leader in him. Scholarship was his first nature which he carried lightly with him. Salutations to a towering architect and designer of SciCom in India.

Ex. BARC and President of National Center of Science Communicators

म. ना. हीच ओळख, विज्ञानप्रसारासाठी पाच दशकांचं झपाटलेपण आणि भाषेविषयी मनात, खास कोपरा नव्हे तर दालन असणारे म. ना! दहा वर्षांपूर्वीपर्यंत म. वि. प.चे वार्षिक अधिवेशन म्हणजे म.नांचे घरचे कार्य वाटायचे; मविपच्या संस्थापकाघरचेच! उदगावकरसर, गोवारीकरसर, नारळीकरसर इ. आघाडीचे वैज्ञानिक, देवधरसरांसारखे उद्योजक, चिं. मो. पंडीत इत्यादींशी असलेली म.नांची जवळीक डोळ्यात भरणारी होती.
घेतलेले व्रत हेच जीवन मानलेल्या म.नांना भावपूर्ण श्रद्धांजली.

I was indeed grieved to get the news and to note that one more of my professional colleagues has left me. It is true that I had not been in touch with him for many a year now, but in such a situation, your memory swings back to the distant past with vigour. This is exactly what has happened in the present case too. I knew Shri Gogte as an intelligent and well qualified engineer. Although he practiced civil engineering as his profession, Marathi language, Vidnyan (science) and Vidnyan in Marathi were his arena of passion. His untiring efforts and unbounded zeal for propagation of his ideas and innovations were admirable. I recall how in his enthusiasm to enroll new members for Marathi Vidnyan Parishad, he carried out virtually door to door visits to convince people about the necessity of such a body.In this connection, I recall how he had come up 4 floors of my old office bldg. in Fort, maybe sometime in mid sixties, to request me to be a member of the Parishad. I had instantly agreed and if my memory is not failing badly, I think I was perhaps one of the first 50 members of MVP. The now full -grown ever-flourishing Parishad certainly owes its beginning to the seeds sown and the plant later nurtured by Shri Madhukar Gogte. MVP happens to be his family and my condolences to this family. My condolences to the members of his family at home.
