Never, never, never give up.
Byline: P SENTHIL S DURAI - Mumbai
I would like to repeat the following quotes from Winston Churchill: 'Never, never, never give up. If you are going through hell, keep going. Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.' I think these beautiful Winston Churchill quotes are now befitting the ISRO [Indian Space Research Organisation] as the much-talked-about Chandrayaan-2 lunar exploration mission has met with an unexpected roadblock due to the connection failure with Vikram lunar lander. All I observed is that almost all the media houses worldwide have greatly talked about the whole Chandrayaan episode, inspiring the people from all over the world in the field of science.
Talking about great feats achieved and speaking well of others are all beautiful good signs of humanity and grace. As a person who had studied subjects like science with full, I am talking about this at length. The other day I had gone to LinkedIn Offices in Bangalore for my next career step. My profile had not been selected, making me wonder what went wrong even at this stage. Even now, I am feeling the pinch and I should come out of it soon.
There should be/have been reasons for the Chandrayaan soft landing failure. Great understanding, strong support, thorough knowledge and big confidence will go a long way in revealing the Chandrayaan facts. All Asian countries like India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and the international community should work together towards achieving many milestones on the scientific front in the best interests of all.
