“The eclipse reminds us that that we are travelling in space while residing on the earth…. Friends, India has an ancient and glorious history of astronomy. Our connection with the twinkling stars in the sky is as old as our civilisation.

Who doesn’t know about the prodigious talent of the great Aryabhatta,” PM said. (IANS)
