A shopkeeper in a grocery shop has now been part of sending 104 satellites to spaceFather's order! He had to look after the grocery shop.
Although Vikash was a very meritorious student and performed brilliantly in XIIth standard examination, his father did not allow him to study engineering. Instead he took admission in a local college to study mathematics. But when a new engineering college started at Korba, he joined the second year of mechanical engineering through lateral entry. He completed engineering and got selected in IIT- Bombay for higher studies. Again his father did not allow him to leave Korba. He became Assistant Professor in the same college where he had studied and at the same time managed the grocery shop with his father.
Now Vikash attempted to join ISRO. His newly-wed wife encouraged him, Vikash was successful. He joined ISRO's Thiruvananthapuram office as a scientist in April, 2016. Yesterday, a team of ISRO scientists was successful to send 104 satellites into the orbit. Vikash Aggarwal, the erstwhile grocery shop owner/manager, has been a part of the record-creating team of Indian scientists.
