Dear Swati,
Also, If u look at the moon mission from Strategic Point of view; we (Indians) need an understanding of objects moving in space (i.e. zero gravity) for developing Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM). Further the Infrastructure developed for the mission will be helpful in developing a missile shield for the country.
Looking from the Economic point of view the same infrastructure can be used for developing rural markets, e-schools etc...
So according to me we (Indians) have killed "2 birds with one arrow"
So as far i'm concerned I'm not even worried abt the cost of the project. But am extremely happy that the Govt. gave its approval and am VERY VERY proud that the Scientific community delivered it...
