You Made Us All Proud Again - Poem by Bashyam Narayanan

You, the Scientists of ISRO, made us all proud again
By launching PSLV C23

I do not understand the technicalities of the launch
I understand, but, this attempt will make an Indian access to Mars
I also understand that this launch vehicle carries
With it five foreign satellite
My understanding is that India has entered an elite group of nations
To have this special technology and to have mastered fuel engineering

Satellites and space science have
Great role to play especially in communication

I only wish this venture goes a long way in helping India
Come out of it's a good number development issues

Let it alleviate our poverty
Let it show us the way for better agricultural practices
Let is enhance our mineral exploration activities
Let it give us disaster prediction well in advance
So that appropriate steps are taken to minimize loss
Let it serve the purpose of protecting our forest cover
Let it help us manage ground water resources
Let it make us understand better the water shed management
Let it, as it has done, improve timely communication
Let it develop us India into a name
To reckon in any advanced space research
Let it simply improve the quality of life in India

The successful launch only shows
That we are advanced scientifically and technologically
That we are capable of meeting challenges collectively
That we have our own means to realize our cherished dreams

Prime Minister has rightly said
Our saints had developed
Supplement scriptures (Upanishads)
And our scientists have gone far to develop and launch
Satellites (Upagrah)

Let this research be ever on
And let India have a honourable space in space

Let all other Indian scientists make the world realize
That we are second to none

You made us all proud
Keep this spirit up
All the very best to your future endeavours
