Our heritage is one of seeking to understand life and the Universe. ISRO is doing India proud. Indigenous technological development has earned us respect in the World. India's military has similarly achieved success, but more needs to be done. The success of Chandrayaan has shown that large numbers of Indians both in India and around the World felt overjoyed that India is finally waking up to its true potential. More needs to be done, simply because we can. And that sums up the issue. Character comes before all else. As it is said, it is smarter to teach a man to fish rather than feed a man a fish. This means we develop our own technology, our way for our needs, rather than beg or buy technology from those who do not mean us well.
The Naysayers do not deserve space on this forum. This forum is only for proud Indians and those who wish her well.
