The Prime Minister assured that no nation be worried about this capability as it was meant for a purely defensive role. India has become a Space power now. He congratulated our scientists and technocrats on this achievement.

Just make sure you keep a half sensible government in control!
You don't take us Indians, our political system, our good democratic set up of the government seriously, do you? The govt.in power today is a sensible govt. It is run by professionally competent and mature technocrats and administrators headed by lawmakers of a high caliber. It can be understood that Pakistan and the PRC are jealous of our hard earned successes in spite of severe problems but the Western people being sarcastic was not expected. Your prejudices could be allowed to recede into the background for a day---at least.

Very good news! As we know, in America NASA has had its boom periods, as well as periods of stagnation due to underfinancing. Rising powers, like India, may make great bounds in space exploration - as indeed Russia did at first. The great nations rushing to explore the stars will advance us all as a species, perhaps even in future generations allow us to live on other worlds?
