It was 2nd April, 1984
When the first Indian citizen
Travelled in space aboard SoyuzT-11.
However, that was a Soviet mission.
India has a long cherished ambition
Of its own man mission in space.
The announcement by the Prime Minister of India recently
Has brought this mission on priority
Of the Indian Space Research Organization
Which has said that year 2022 deadline is very much doable.
The mission will not only be a pride of India
It will also be the capacity and capability to undertake such missions
Will be the actual achievement.
