The social media jubilation over the ISRO launch only reveals the paucity of centres (read oasis) of excellence in India’s public sector. Only if we had moonshots as far as feeding the hungry, a second green revolution and housing the urban homeless. A country of a billion and a quarter, has too few present day national icons to celebrate (read vent) our national pride. A civilisation state needs a few more moments of celebration than cricket world cups and PSLV’s? We even go gaga over a flicker appearance of an Indian actor in a trashy Hollywood flick.
