    India has been surging ahead in space programs and has become envied country for many. On this occasion we are duty bound to remember those who have done their immense contributions to space development and Vikram Sarabhai is pioneer among them.

    Every Indian is proud of our country being listed in the Big Six space programs of the world (along with China, Europe, Japan, America and Russia). This is directly related to the initial hardwork and vision of great legends like Dr.Vikram Sarabhai. He was also instrumental in developing the Indian Institute of Management. Ahmedabad. One of the other proud moments of ISRO was in Feb 2017, when it launched PSLV-37 with 104 satellites from 7 countries successfully.

    Vikram Sarabhai was one of my icons. My childhood dreams was either to became a space scientist or nuclear scientist. The space research centre,in Trivandrum is known as Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre.
    The life story of personalities like Vikram Sarabhai tells us how they toiled with focused devotion to make and take this country gain and achieve in scientific and space technology field. There were only very elementary and rudimentary facilities for them and most of it also they had to improvise.
    Sarabhai is a light that got extinguished too soon . But his spirit and memory stands as a guiding star in the Horizon.

    India is doing good in the area of satellites and space science and it is the people like Vikram Sarabhai who have through their determination and hard work made this feat possible.

    We are proud of such Indian scientists and I pay my respect and salute to late Sarabhai.

    Knowledge is power.
