Concluding his impactful two-nation tour, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's next destination is Bengaluru, Karnataka, where he embarks on a carefully scheduled visit. His purpose is to engage with the brilliant minds behind ISRO's remarkable Chandrayaan-3 Mission, a venture that has captured the imagination of the nation.

The recent achievement that has caught the world's attention is the triumphant touchdown of the Chandrayaan-3 lander, affectionately known as 'Vikram,' on the uncharted lunar South Pole after an awe-inspiring 40-day journey through space. This remarkable feat has etched India's name in the annals of history, marking it as the pioneering country to accomplish such a remarkable mission.

During a live telecast event from South Africa, Prime Minister Modi shared in the exhilarating moment of Chandrayaan-3's landing. The historic occasion prompted him to express his pride, underscoring the significance of this achievement for the nation. He emphasized that witnessing these groundbreaking milestones fills the hearts of Indians with pride, symbolizing the advent of a new era for the country, as reported by ANI. 

Prime Minister Modi eloquently conveyed the essence of this achievement, stating, "We made a promise on Earth and translated it into reality on the moon... India is now a lunar presence." His words reflect the dedication and determination that India has shown in pushing the boundaries of space exploration.

This momentous achievement cements India's position as the fourth nation globally, following the United States, Russia, and China, to successfully accomplish a lunar landing mission. The Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft exhibited incredible precision as it gently positioned the Vikram lander on the lunar terrain, executed with a well-coordinated tilt to ensure a horizontal landing.

The journey of Chandrayaan-3 commenced with its launch from the iconic Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Andhra Pradesh’s Sriharikota on July 14, igniting the imaginations of millions across the country.
