Lucknow: They say one should dream big as dreams can come true. Ask Rashi Verma, a Class 10 student of Delhi Public School from Lucknow and she will only nod her head in approval.
This girl is only one of the few students selected from across India to witness the landing of Chandrayaan-2 on the surface of the Moon. Not just that, she will also be sharing the space with none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Prime Minister will be in Bengaluru on September 7 to witness the historic landing.
But what qualified this student for this once-in-a-lifetime experience?
Well, an online quiz was conducted in this regard and she cleared it.
Incidentally, two students from every state are being selected for the event on the basis of the online quiz.
India Today, quoted Rashi, who is extremely excited at being selected as saying: "Given a chance I would like to talk to the Prime Minister. I want to become an IAS officer."
She further said that in the quiz, she was asked questions related to space and science.
As of now, the name of the other student who has been selected from Uttar Pradesh is not yet known.
It was last Tuesday that ISRO successfully placed Chandrayaan 2 into the lunar orbit. It was an achievement in itself in India's second Moon mission.
ISRO had said in a statement then: "The health of the spacecraft is being continuously monitored from the Mission Operations Complex (MOX) at ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) in Bengaluru with support from Indian Deep Space Network (IDSN) antennas at Bylalu, near Bengaluru. All the systems of Chandrayaan 2 are healthy."
