    Really sad to note that former ISRO Chairman Udupi Ramachandra Rao, or affectionately called as U. R. Rao is no more. India really lost the big soul which was instrumental in developing ISRO to this stature. May his soul rest in peace.

A very famous astrophysicist, Dr.Rao was responsible for sowing seeds during his regime for all this Chandrayan and mangalyaan. GSLV and PSLV etc. He received Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan awards for his works from government of India. Born in a normal agricultural family in Karnataka has gone to Sky level with his technological, managerial and positive skills.
