Chandrayaan-1Indias maiden lunar mission and represented the aspiration of a billion Indians, Once near moon it send Moon Impact Probe (MIP) and for first time in history India was able to reach the lunar surface. One would have expected the spot (Shackleton Crater) where the probe landed to be named after India. But nope….. Its named after Nehru Family!! The spot is now renamed as the Jawahar Point as apparently it was birth anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru.

Our national media is at it again, feeding gullible mass with incorrect information.
Indian express shouts
Chandrayaan-1 finds water on moon: Report
Times of India reports
Chandrayaan finds water on Moon's surface
NDTV as usual is miles off mark reporting
Chandrayaan discovers water on moon
The fact is the result is due to efforts of data from three spacecraft that have made close flybys of the moon. Research teams from Brown University, the University of Maryland and the U.S. Geological Survey used spectroscopic measurements taken of the lunar surface by NASA's Cassini and Deep Impact spacecraft, as well as India's Chandrayaan 1 satellite.
From India’s side, credit for this goes to NASAs Moon Minerology Mapper (M3), one of two instruments contributed by NASA to Chandrayaan-1. M3 is a state-of-the-art imaging spectrometer that will provide the first map of the entire lunar surface at high spatial and spectral resolution, revealing the minerals of which it is made.Of course, we should be proud of the fact that India’s maiden moon mission was destined to be the means to one of greatest discoveries in the history of space research.

The new campaign, designed by Regenbogen e.V. in conjunction with the advertising agency "das comitee", speaks in clear terms: its slogan is "AIDS is a mass murderer". It features the greatest mass murderers in recent history having sex.
I wonder what communists whose walls inIndia have to say about this.Many of them still carry his picture in their heart and walls.
