May 11 is a very special day for India. National Technology Day i.e. We celebrate ‘National Technology Day’ as on 11 May. On this day, there was a technological revolution in the country. This day is recorded in history as the ‘Pokhran Atomic Test’ of 1998 and India’s major progress in space.
This day marks the development of science in India and the development of technology. On this day, along with national pride, the nation also remembers the achievements of its scientists. On the occasion of National Technology Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated and he also remembered the 1998 Pokaran test during this time.
This day was the first step in a series of five atomic bombings conducted by India in the Pokhran test range of the Indian Army. This was the first of five nuclear tests in Pokhran. India successfully fired Operation Shakti missile on this day.
India completely changed the nuclear game worldwide by testing nuclear missiles. India challenged the never-ending dominance of the Western powers thanks to our leaders Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam and former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

India did the nuclear test in an intelligent manner. In 1995, India’s efforts were detected by American spies and under pressure, India had to postpone its trial. This time India did not want to leave any stone unturned. Kalam and his team visited the test site several times. He roamed the area for several months as a military officer, but no one got to know about it and then a successful nuclear test took place.
On the morning of 11 May 1998, India conducted its nuclear test near Khetolai village in Pokhran in the Thar Desert. The shaft named White House exploded. India surprised everyone by testing a 58 kg ton nuclear bomb. It was four times more powerful than Little Boy, the atomic bomb dropped by the US during the Second World War in Hiroshima, Japan. The world was shocked how India did this feat but India had finished its work.
Later, Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee declared India a nuclear-rich country. After that, India became the sixth country to join the nuclear club countries. That is why May 11 to 1999 is celebrated as National Technology Day (National Technology Day).
Apart from nuclear tests, India also successfully tested its first indigenous aircraft – Hansa 3, developed by the National Aerospace Laboratories, Bangalore. Apart from this, India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) successfully test-fired India’s surface-to-air missile Trishul and added to the achievement of this day. It was incorporated by the Army and Navy and became a part of the India-guided missile development program.
