‘Moon struck’

Chandrayaan reached the moon on monday 10th nov 2008, marking a milestone in Indian space history and fluttering the Indian tricolor high!!

Kudos to the scientists of ISRO and Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam whose brainchild is ‘Chandrayaan’

Following is the verse from rigveda in praise of moon:

त्वं सोमा प्रचिकितो मनीषा |

त्वं रजिस्था मनु नेषि पन्थाम ||

(rik-ved 1-91)

O’ Moon enlightem us through the right path (so that) we should be able to know you through our intellect/buddhi.
