Early Days Of India's Space Programme - Professor UR Rao [Video]

One of the longest serving Chairman of ISRO reminisces about the fledgling days of India's forays into Space, & subsequently.

One of those individuals who had been associated with ISRO right from the start. Don't miss the part where he jovially narrates an incidence where the Americans "borrowed" something from India, promising to return it back, & never did. Late Spy Czar B. Raman had a similar experience to narrate, albeit, one that unfolded under much graver circumstances. Refers to Dr. Abdus Salam with a definite degree of respect.
