Greetings from IIT Bombay!
I write to you today with immense pride and joy as we celebrate and bask in the glow of our nation’s successes on the global stage. The successful launch of Chandrayaan 3 made India the fourth country to land on the moon and the very first country to land on the lunar south pole. IIT Bombay, along with millions of Indians all over the world, watched the live landing with bated breath, and the sheer joy that we all felt at the successful landing will stay in our hearts forever. I am attaching a video that captures the moment at your alma mater when Chandrayan 3 landed. I can still feel the goosebumps! Hearty congratulations to ISRO on this stupendous accomplishment!
