    Institutions That Shaped Modern India: ISRO

    • Publisher: Rupa
      2021
    An introduction to ISRO, the organization that took India to space.

    The end of colonial rule was an important milestone worth celebrating, but what lay ahead was a long journey towards the making of modern India. The narrative of ‘modern India’ would be incomplete without the stories of institutions that helped shape India as we know it today.

    This volume, part of a series on Institutions that Shaped Modern India, offers an in-depth introduction to one such institution—the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). It tells the story of ISRO from its inception to present times. Capturing its history and its evolution, dotted with several achievements and some setbacks,  and offering deep insights into ISRO’s key projects—past, present and future—the book  is an ode to an institution that has been at the steering wheel of India’s journey into space and has played a seminal role in nation-building.

    How ISRO handled the pandemic

    November 09, 2020

    Senior Fellow, Manohar Parrikar IDSA, Gp. Capt. Ajey Lele’s article ‘How ISRO handled the pandemic’ has been published in ‘The Space Review’ on November 09, 2020.

    Over the years, ISRO has clearly identified its tasks for social, scientific, strategic, and commercial sectors.
