At Indian Meteorological Society (IMS), Kolkata Chapter, it is our continuous endeavor to acquire the necessary knowledge to understand various aspects of science, nature and atmosphere. We do not expect everyone of us to be scientist, but we care for scientific people; people who can think rationally over the events around them.
