Mumbai: Thirty-seven-year-old interior designer, Deepak Makawana always celebrates Ganpati in a grand way and decorates the lord’s idol in a unique way. This time around, his theme is India’s Moon Mission ‘Chandayaan 2’.
On entering the Makwana’s Santacruz house, one can see an idol of Lord Ganesh sitting on a big table like structure and on both the sides, there is real time replicas of Chandrayaan 2. On the right of the idol, Makwana has made a real time replica of GSLV Mk-III rocket nicknamed ‘Bahubali’.
The replica is an electronic machine, replicating the live demonstration of the liftoff. Makwana has also made a replica of the moon, around which he has made Orbiter, the Lander Vikram and Rover Pragyan and tried to demonstrate how Vikram Lander and how the rover Pragyan will ride on the lunar surface.
“Mission Chandrayaan 2, is a proud moment for the whole nation. With the success of this mission, India will become the fourth nation after the US, Russia and China to land on the moon. Further, India will become the first nation to explore the south pole of the Moon,” said Makwana
