I read the news in local daily that says “India gets another feather in its cap: NASA has decided to setup R&D center in Pune, India”. I confirmed the news here.
So, the world is recognizing our ‘talent’, huh? Unless they tell us “you guys are good!” we won’t know that we are good. Now, I don’t get this – why do we need NASA in India? Its *their* national aeronautics and space administration; we’ve got our own ISRO. Why are we being told that its a matter of pride that NASA has ‘chosen us’ to setup their R&D? Damn!
I guess we’ll never come out of our ‘slave’ mentality. They tell us “termeric” is good antiseptic and we think “oh wow!”. Then they sell it to us in shiny packets with a super cool name and we go ga ga over their ‘innovations’…and in the process we forget our old nanny telling us 20 different uses of termeric.
We’ve come up with our own Chandrayaan and I truly believe we’ll do fantastic in future. We don’t want NASA to ‘recognize our talent’. We know we are good.
I’m game for this : NASA opens R&D in Pune and we open ISRO’s R&D in California. What say, fellas? Anyone? 😉
