Yes, I support it because it encourages our scientists and it help them in many inventions.

The money spent on such mission doesn't go on mars but remains in our country. Only resources we need to expend.

Where we have failed miserably is the quality of govt schools and hospitals is so poor that today even many villagers send their kids to pvt schools and seek treatment in pvt hospitals even though at times they are about ten km away from their villages. Secondly there is a huge population of youngsters in the country due to which lot many manufacturing units are requ ...more

I too agree with you. Purely unnecessary expenditure when most citizens are living in miserable condition.
