Rama Shankar and Ashish Kumar Tripathi from India made a historical victory over the international competition and won Max Planck Research Award-2015 in Biodiversity Conservation. Their research was highlighted in international media and gathered a large worldwide attention in scientific circles while it appeared in world's most read journal 'International Journal of Medicinal Plants'. In their report on Exploration, conservation and cultivation of Oroxylum indicum Vent. (Shyonak) in Northeast India they mention that Oroxylum indicum belonging to family Bignoniaceae and named as Shyonak in Ayurvedic system of medicine is distributed in a foothills of North East India up to an elevation of 500msl having its occurrence in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura in Northeastern India. Its distribution is very poor in the areas wherever is found. O. indicum is recognized amongst the list of threatened plants. It has wider use in Ayurvedic formulations like Chyavanprash, Dasmularishta, Brahat Panchamulyadi Kwath, Syonaka Putapaka, Syonak Siddhaghrita etc. The root bark is also used, administered as astringent, bitter tonic, stomachic and anodyne. The plant is used in Northeastern India for the cure of mouth cancer, in traditional medicine. The leaf is used for rearing silk worm. Due to multiple uses the exploitation of the plant from Natural habitat is necessary to seek major steps for its conservation in the Natural habitat. Before that population assessment in Nature is required And accordingly the study on distribution, population at the GPS has been carried out and after getting less population in a big part of the areas in different states to fulfil the Industrial and local traditional healer’s requirement and the methods for conservation and cultivation has been made with the aim to save from extinction from Natural habitat. Under their leadership the research area is surely likely to expand beyond the horizons. It will be worthy to explore the further potential under their legacy. Rama Shankar and Ashish Kumar Tripathi as valuable intellectuals for the country offer exclusive opportunities for scholars around the world. One of the most attractive weightage for India is to have the awardees for promotion of the concerned scientific discipline for the benefit of its civilians. Thus India which has excellent track record to produce brain storming intellectuals, has offered a new extension in terms of Rama Shankar and Ashish Kumar Tripathi to world.
The research work is carried out to study the distribution of the plant Oroxylum indicum which is reducing its population from Natural habitat due to acute pressure in different ways. In Nature the seed germination is poor due to seeds being winged and dispersed away from the vicinity of plant which needs first experimental cultivation i.e. raising planting material and then transplantation in the field. Cultivation of O. indicum a threatened plant is possible through seed germination. Public and government should take under mass cultivation.
The study is to the extent of field survey and experimental cultivation. Commonly the new seedlings are developed in the vicinity of the plant which make the possibility of reoccupation of the same plant if older on exploits however, in this case new seedlings were not found in the vicinity. Since the plant is reported as highly threatened medicinal plant its conservation and cultivation is the need of time.
Plants of Oroxylum indicum being a threatened plant under highly demanded medicinal plants needs to be cultivated in mass for safety from extinction as well as to fulfill the Pharmaceutical demand for health management. Government sector specially Forest Department should concentrate over enriching population in the forest areas and allow for systemic collection of drug material till the population achieves its normal position. Public involvement in the conservation of medicinal plants is needed and the unutilized land in the villages as well as community land is to be used for extensive cultivation of Oroxylum indicum for income generation.
Both the authors have conducted survey tours in Arunachal Pradesh and Meghalaya, whereas corresponding author has explored the potential of the plant in Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura areas. The co author is maintaining records of the study conducted along with GPS status. The basic frame work planning as well as generating concept for different studies field observations experimental work GPS status and distributional status and experimental observations were taken by the corresponding author Dr. Rama Shankar. Necessary planning and discussions were regularly made on mail and over telephone or during different meetings with each other during leave and movement from working place.

A Federal Government move to sideline a $1.9 billion budget cut to higher education courses and push ahead with fee deregulation has failed to sway the Senate crossbench. The measures — fee deregulation and the funding cut — were at the heart of the Coalition's university overhaul, which seemed doomed to fail for a second time in the Senate and have now been split into two separate pieces of legislation. The original bill faced heavy opposition, with only one crossbench senator out of eight publicly prepared to back it — far short of the six votes required. But hiving off the budget cut to a separate vote has not won over the vote — with at least five crossbench senators telling the ABC they will not vote for the core deregulation legislation.
