Twitter is flooded with encouraging tweets for the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) scientists, after the Vikram Lander failed to have a smooth landing on the surface of the Moon.
While Prime Minister Narendra Modi conducted a pep talk for the ISRO officials and scientists, political leaders, Bollywood actors and Indians flooded Twitter with positive messages.
Shah Rukh Khan, the King of Bollywood, took to Twitter and said, “Sometimes we don’t land or arrive at the destination we want to. The important thing is we took off and had the hope and belief we can. Our current situation is never and not our final destination. That always comes in time and belief! Proud of #ISRO.”

2. साथ ही, आगे बढ़ते रहने के लिए यह जरूरी है कि निराशा, हताशा व दुःखी कतई न हों और यह भी याद रहे कि ’गिरते हैं शहसवार मैदान-ए-जंग में, वह तिफ्ल (बच्चा) क्या गिरे जो घुटनों के बल चले’। वैज्ञनिकों को देशहित में काम करते रहने के लिए उनके हौंसले बढ़ाते रहने की जरूरत है।
