In 2009 and 2019, it was a very sad moment when Chandrayaan-1 and Chandrayaan-2 didn’t make it to the moon but the moment when Chandrayaan-3 was launched on 14 July 2023 our hopes of achieving it got successful on 23 August’s evening at 6:05 pm when… Yeah! India touched the moon!
Chandrayaan-3 made a very soft landing by going on to become the first nation to land on the moon's South pole and also, the fourth country to touch the surface successfully after the US, China and Russia. And it became possible due to none other than our dearest and powerful scientists of India. Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) made it! Filled our hearts with all pride, emotion, love and happiness in creating the most glorious moment ever.
While every Indian citizen is celebrating the success, we have celebrities from Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan Allu Arjun, Akshay Kumar, Sunny Deol, Mahesh Babu to many others are expressing their happiness via social media posts in their most lovely styles and pouring in congratulatory messages for ISRO.
Reminiscing a few lines from a song, Shah Rukh Khan says, “Chaand Taare todh laoon….Saari Duniya par main chhaoon. Aaj india aur #ISRO chhaa gaya. Congratulations to all the scientists and engineers…the whole team which has made India so proud. Chandrayaan-3 has successfully soft-landed on the moon. #Chandrayaan3".
Sharing his emotions, Amitabh Bachchan posts two times. In the first post, the actor writes, “For far too long when India was referred to , it was spoken of as 3rd World Country .. and I hated it .. TODAY I AM PROUD TO SAY , INDIA IS 1ST WORLD .. in more ways than one ..
भारत माता की जय ! 🇮🇳 वन्दे मातरम् ! 🇮🇳" and writing few poetic lines through the second post, “ये चाँद उदित होकर नभ में, कुछ ताप मिटाता, हम सब का
लहरा लहरा ये परचम, आज , संदेश सुनाता भारत का ;
ये देश हमारा भारत है, अधिकार है विश्व के पन्नों पर ,
प्रथम रहा है, प्रथम रहेगा , शिवंकर, शंकर शिवशंकर ! ''
~ अमिताभ बच्चन"
Imitating the famous dialogue, Allu Arjun wrote on the Instagram story, “ये भारत का तिरंगा है कभी झुकेगा नहीं 🇮🇳” And also taking to the Twitter, he said, “Congratulations to @isro . A proud moment for India in space exploration! #Chandrayaan3 has touched down on the moon’s South Pole, making India the FIRST country to achieve this remarkable feat! JAIHIND ! #IndiaOnTheMoon 🇮🇳"

There are many interesting facts about Chandrayaan-3 to make us even more proud, one such thing is that compared to other countries’ moon missions ours was the cheapest. An estimated Rs 615 crore has been spent on the project and it is said to be one of the country’s most cost-effective space missions.
