    A shopkeeper in a grocery shop has now been part of sending 104 satellites to space

    Father'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.

    You are right. It is a pride moment for those who are associated with ISRO. Just few minute back I received a phone call from my sister who is a PGT in Hindi. With pride and happiness, she was mentioning about the great success. Her 25 year old younger son after completing B Tech joined ISRO at Sriharikota as a Scientist two years ago is the prime reason for her joy!! Of course she is a proud mother, but we are proud of all the great achievers.

    Mr. Patro: I think most of the Indians are extremely proud of this achievement of Indian scientists and engineers. Not only this is a prestigious feat, but this has opened a very vast commercial opportunity before ISRO. And scientists from ordinary middle-class families like Vikash Aggarwal have made the country proud.
    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

    A big congrats to our scientists fraternity of ISRO on the eve of the achievement. Thanks to author to let our members to know more about Mr. Vikash Aggarwal about his background and success. Yeah, this is the handful opportunity to our country to reach new heights not only in the financial angle but also to sustain our Flag high in the space arena.

    Patro Sir, this is the Pride of our Nation but our Nation will not be of Arrogance. This is one beautiful example to say Pride and Arrogance will not travel together.

    Wow some times when luck wants to smile on us, we wont recognize and be reluctant in our own way not to take any risk. But again we are all responsible for the family also and that might make us to think otherwise and thus loose many chances. By reading the Vikash Agarwal progress in life, it was full of challenges but again there was always a inner urge and perseverance to achieve something and that made him to get into as a performer along with scores of scientists of ISRO who are now responsible for the successful launch 104 satellites in one go and thus brought laurels to our country.
