I am Raghu Ram Katreddi, currently a third-year PhD student in Biology at the University at Albany, New York. I did my MPharm from Andhra University and later worked as a research assistant in many research labs in India, Canada and the US.
Besides my main interest in basic research, I am also interested in reaching out to the public about science and promoting scientific careers and this is what brought me close to Vignana Darshini. The ability to question is one of the many unique skills humans acquired during evolution however, not everyone has the freedom to utilize it due to constant conditioning and brainwash from society. I still relish my exciting journey from a blindly following religious person towards a freely thinking rationalist and remember how questioning everything surrounding me helped me in the transition.! I hope I will do my part in taking forward scientific thinking and a rationalistic approach to the public via Vignana Darshini.
