And it’s no different for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who takes pride in being known as a space buff. So it doesn’t come as a surprise when under his active encouragement ISRO is seen playing its twin roles so successfully —  emerge as a global power in the international space arena and also be the backbone of as many as 150 national building projects at home.
