The ups and downs of ISRO

In the first 40 years of its existence, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has had its ups and downs. Now, the story of one of the world’s top space agencies has been put together in a book.

Former President and India’s missile man A P J Abdul Kalam released ‘A Brief History of Rocketry in ISRO’ at a function here on Thursday. Written by former ISRO staffers P V Manoranjan Rao and P Radhakrishnan, the thick volume is about the first four decades of ISRO, how it developed from a mere concept to a space agency capable of shooting off moon probes.

Thiruvananthapuram dons a major role in this story as the birthplace of ISRO, and over the years, four of the space agency’s units have also made the district their home. The book relates how the efforts of men such as Vikram Sarabhai, Satish Dhawan and others shaped the ISRO of today.

Where migrant workers shop…



Bengali, Oriya, and various dialects of Hindi can heard at the market. The physical features of the clientele too betray the fact that they come from outside the State

Trivandrum is surprisingly missing from McKinsley 600 cities list.
Trivandrum was there for years together.
There is some error as even smaller cities like,....Thrissur,Thalasseri and Kollam is listed.


Is it due to indefenite posponing of VISL ?

Distance from Trivandrum-Pettah to Trivandrum Central is approx. 1 Km. But according to railways, Island Express need 51 min to travel this distance.

Pranab to campaign in Kerala Wednesday

Thiruvananthapuram, July 4 (IANS) UPA presidential candidate Pranab Mukherjee will arrive here Wednesday as part of his poll campaign and meet Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and other leaders.

Mukherjee will meet leaders and legislators of all the parties in the state barring the Communist Party of India and Revolutionary Socialist Party, both of whom have decided to abstain from voting in the poll.

Chief whip in the Kerala Assembly P.C.George told IANS that Mukherjee will arrive Wednesday morning and leave the same day.

"Since the assembly is in session, a time schedule has been given to each party and their legislators to meet Mukherjee. The Left opposition in the assembly will meet him around noon. The MPs from the state also will be meeting him," said George.

As Vizhinjam Seems to be a State Owned Project, it doesnt require the central funds. Thats why they didnt mention it here...

What about Kerala HSR, Athirapally etc... mentioned in the same report? Arent they all state projects..? One thing in common is all these state projects including Vizhinjam needs "various" clearance (read political will) from centre due to Overseas Investment, environment, defence, shipping etc.. We all know how Vizhinjam bid got torpedoed in past because of Chinese firm involved and had to be retendered.. At the same time, we saw the same chinese firm complete the Hambanbatota port in SrilLanka which is now inaugarated and started operations..

And funnily, it seems now Centre has reversed its stand now & aggressively seeking chinese investment {http://www.smetimes.in/smetimes/news...ties72444.html } in Indian infrastructure....And so, where are we now on Vizhinjam...?

One thing for sure Vizhinjam doesnot seem to fare in the first five list of dream projects of Kerala Govt. as per the news report I posted...
