India Lauches Chandrayaana – 1 Successfully :

With this, India is on its own way to create an amazing history on the Space.

India launched its first unmanned moon mission on Wednesday, following in the footsteps of its Asian rivals China and Japan, as it tries to show off its scientific know-how and claim a bigger chunk of global space business.

Here are some basic facts about the project:

* The unmanned rocket is called Chandrayaan-I. It costs Rs3.86bn ($79m), has a take-off weight of more than 1.3 tonnes, and is being sent on a two-year mission to orbit the moon.

Chandrayaana -1 take off.

Chandrayaana -1 take off.

* India will be the third Asian country to send an unmanned mission into the lunar orbit. Chandrayaan-I is much cheaper than spacecrafts launched by India’s Asian rivals. China’s first lunar probe cost over $187m when it launched in October 2007, while Japan’s Kayuga, launched in September 2007, cost $480m.

* Chandrayaan (“moon vehicle”) plans to map a three-dimensional atlas of the moon, and the surface’s chemical and mineral composition.

* The rocket carries 11 payloads — five from India, two from the USA, and one each from Germany, Britain, Sweden and Bulgaria.

* About 1,000 scientists have worked on the project for four years.

* India plans to send an astronaut into space by 2014 and a manned mission to the moon by 2020. The Indian government has approved the launch of Chandrayaan-2, which is expected to take off between 2010 and 2012, and will include a rover that will land on the moon.

* At least 16 Indian satellites currently orbit the earth, supporting telecommunications, TV broadcasting, earth observation, weather forecasting, remote education and healthcare.

* India started its space programme in 1963, developing its own satellites and launch vehicles to reduce dependence on overseas agencies. India’s constellation of seven earth-observation satellites is the largest in the world.

* In 1959, the sphere-shaped Soviet spacecraft Luna 1 became the first spacecraft to orbit the moon.

Neil Armstrong himself mailed the Indian medias to congratulate the success on this occassion.

Dr.A.P.J.Abdul kalam, Mr.Kasturi Rangan, P.M. Manmohan Singh, President Pratibha Patil and all the Indians congratulated the team for its nice effort to take this project on a green success.

Lal Bahadur Shastri : unforgettable leader of Independent India

Lal Bahadur Shastri : unforgettable leader of Independent India:

Lal Bahadur Shastri ji

Lal Bahadur Shastri (Born: October 2, 1904) was the third Prime Minister of independent India noted for his high vision towards the development of the newly independent nation. He was the significant figure in Indian Independance Movement.

Brief History:

Lal Bahadur was born in Mughalsarai, United Provinces, British India as Lal Bahadur Srivastava. His father Sharada Prasad was a poor school teacher, who later became a clerk in the Revenue Office at Allahabad. When Lal Bahadur was three months old, he slipped out of his mother’s arms into a cowherd’s basket at the ghats of the Ganges. The cowherd, who had no children, took the child as a gift from God and took him home. Lal Bahadur’s parents lodged a complaint with the police, who traced the child, and returned him to his parents.

Lal Bahadur’s father died when he was only a year and a half old. His mother Ramdulari Devi took him and his two sisters to her father’s house and settled down there. Lal Bahadur stayed at his grandfather Hazari Lal’s house till he was ten. Since there was no high school in their town, he was sent to Varanasi where he stayed with his maternal uncle and joined the Harischandra High School. While in Varanasi, Shastri once went with his friends to see a fair on the other bank of the Ganges. On the way back he had no money for the boat fare. Instead of borrowing from his friends, he jumped into the river and swam to the other bank.

In 1927, Shastri married Lalita Devi of Mirzapur. In spite of the prevailing hefty dowry tradition, Shastri accepted only a charkha and a few yards of khadi as dowry. In 1930, he threw himself into the freedom struggle during Mahatma Gandhi’s Salt Satyagraha. He was imprisoned for two and a half years[9]. Once, while he was in prison, one of his daughters fell seriously ill. He was released for fifteen days, on the condition that he not take part in the freedom movement. However, his daughter died before he reached home. After performing the funeral rites, he voluntarily returned to prison, even before the expiry of the period. A year later, he asked for permission to go home for a week, as his son had contracted influenza. The permission was given, but his son’s illness was not cured in a week. In spite of his family’s pleadings, he kept his promise to the jail officers and returned to the prison.

Later, he worked as the Organizing Secretary of the Parliamentary Board of U.P. in 1937. In 1940, he was sent to prison for one year, for offering individual Satyagraha to support the freedom movement. On August 8, 1942, Mahatma Gandhi issued the Quit India speech at Gowalia Tank in Mumbai, demanding that the British leave India. Shastri, who had just then come out after a year in prison, traveled to Allahabad. For a week, he sent instructions to the freedom fighters from Jawaharlal Nehru’s home, Anand Bhavan. A few days later, he was arrested and imprisoned until 1946. Shastri spent almost nine years in jail in total. During his stay in prison, he spent time reading books and became familiar with the works of western philosophers, revolutionaries and social reformers. He also translated the autobiography of Madam Curie into Hindi language.
