Looking at the earnest efforts being made by India and Germany at the academic/scientific level, as well as at the governmental level, I strongly feel that Indo-German science cooperation is poised to grow by leaps and bounds in the coming years. On a personal level, I can gladly say that the platform offered to me 30 years ago to carry out research work with a German collaborator has now blossomed into a platform involving several German collaborators with diverse scientific backgrounds from universities spread across Germany. Thanks to German science, I have become an inter-disciplinary researcher.
