"First of all, I am an Indian."— Vani Chauhan 🇮🇳 (@Vani_Chauhan) September 10, 2019
This statement from ISRO Chief K Sivan is something I wish every Indian thought. I see so many thumping their chests to claim superiority of their regional identity or ridiculing others & forget that without India they will have no identity.
I am from Bihar and i am proud of Dr. Sivan like every other Indian. It doesn't affect me which state he belongs to, what religion he practices or which language he speaks. For me, he is a honest, hard working chairman of a world renowned space agency. He is our national hero.— Aakash srivastava 🇮🇳 (@Aakashlive) September 10, 2019
