TRDDC’s 25th year celebrations

TRDDC’s 25th year celebrations were held from 11-13 December 2006. Redesigned, the spacious bright environs of the refurbished office set the tone of renewal and resurgence. Ablaze with color, the garden in the central atrium was a visual treat. Banners and posters on the walls, stairwells and ensconced in niches presented quotes from scientists and philosophers, enhancing the celebratory air. Information kiosk near the central marble staircase displayed interactive demos of TRDDC’s latest innovations. 25 years
