Re: Mangalyaan : ISRO's Mars Orbiter Mission

Western space agencies have a joke about the Great Galactic Ghoul who lives between Earth and Mars and who eats space probes, causing the high failure rate for Mars missoons. Turns out the Ghoul is no match for SDRE vibhuti power!

Skekatpuray, ISRO has 2 tracking ships in the Pacific ocean : SCI Nalanda and SCI Yamuna. In addition, NASA's Deep Space Network will also be providing support.

Edit : ISRO also has ground stations in Mauritius, Brunei and Indonesia.

Re: Narendra Modi vs the Dynasty: Contrasting Ideas of India

Niran ji, your andar ke khabars are always uplifting! Modiji is silent but deadly.

Why should he spend political capital on whether Robber gets groped at the airport or not. It would merely give the Congis something to cry about without any benefit to the nation.

He is projecting a massive BJP wave and in fact he has already called the election for the NDA even before the last 2 phases of polling. Whether he is reliable or not will be clear on 16th May.
