Mission Director Dr. V.R. Lalithambika doesn’t make much of the fanfare surrounding the mission to launch humans to space by 2022. I got the rare chance to sit down with her, accompanied by ISRO's head of public relations.
I am an Astrophysicist and I love what I do. When the going gets tough I always find myself asking if there is anything else I’d rather be doing and I always draw a blank. That is how I reassure myself in my moments of doubt. This is the path I chose to walk and I shall keep walking till my legs fail me.
