It is good to have a mechanism in place to bring private money into
the research community which is missing now

We took a wrong turn back at the time of independence to support research echo system

ISS team had an opportunity to speak with India's eminent astrophysicist Prof. Jayant Murthy from Indian institute of astrophysics, Bangalore recently.  He discussed on range of topics related to research eco system, short-comings and his recommendations, on AstroSat launch delay, his experience with high-altitude balloon experiments and many other things. We were happy to listen to his honest and sincere feedback about our research echo-system and how it could improved to support the true researcher in India.  In this interview, he spoke to Vasantha Kumar from Indian Space Station.  We sincerely hope that  government seriously considers his feedback and work on implementing some of those.
