India's joy as a country today knows no bounds. August 23, 2023 will be remembered in history as the day when India became the first country to successfully soft land in the unexplored South Pole of the moon.
With the Chandrayaan 3 touching down the surface of the moon, the jubilance of every Indian, especially the countless scientists at ISRO whose blood, sweat and tears have gone behind in scripting a historic achievement for the country, is unprecedented.
