Central India Makes History by Hoisting Tricolour on Moon

2 min read

Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared on Friday that India had showcased its capabilities to the world by successfully “hoisting the Tricolour on the Moon.” Speaking to the Indian community in Athens, Greece, the PM highlighted India’s recent achievement of becoming the first country to land on the dark zone, South pole of the Moon during the holy month of Sawan. Modi emphasized that by planting the Tricolour on the Moon, India had demonstrated its prowess to the world.

During his visit, Modi was honored with the Grand Cross of the Order of Honour by Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou, which he dedicated to the Indian diaspora and all Indians. The social media has been flooded with messages of congratulations for India’s successful lunar landing this week. Modi also noted that the total length of rural roads built in India over the past nine years could span the distance between Earth and the Moon.

Discussing the longstanding ties between India and Greece, Modi traced their roots back to the Mauryan Empire. He underscored the significance of his visit to Greece as representing Varanasi in the Lok Sabha and hailing from Vadnagar in Gujarat, both of which carry rich heritage similar to Athens.

Modi highlighted that the world is transitioning towards a new global order, with India’s increasing capabilities reshaping its role on the world stage. He noted the unparalleled speed and scale of developments, citing India’s tallest rail bridge, highest motorable road, and the forthcoming largest museum in the world as examples.
