Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Mann Ki Baat is inspiring to many; said Chennai based Space Kidz India (SKI) CEO Dr Srimathy Kesan. She recalled her meeting with PM Modi in Ahmedabad on June 10, 2022. The occasion was to sign an MoU between SKI and IN-SPACe for launching AzaadiSAT, made by 750 government school students in Inida.

Those schools are from Jammu& Kashmir to Kanyakumar.  AzaadiSAT is one of the 75 payloads on the satellite launched by ISRO to mark 75 years of Indian Independence..

“Then, PM Modi interacted with me and asked details of the satellite. I asked Tanvi Patel, a 10th class .student from Mehsna, one of the girls involved in Azadi Sat, to explain in Gujarati to the PM about our project. He attentively listened to Tanvi and appreciated, “said Dr Srimathy Kesan who spoke to Excel India from Chennai on phone on April 27, Thursday.

“Not just that, Modi also introduced her to Home Minister Amit Shah, who hails from Mehasna, a town 100 km from Ahmedabad. Later, the PM in his Mann Ki Baat mentioned about Tanvi Patel and our satellite programme. That gave us so much happiness and our students who took part in building AzaadiSAT will never forget the moment,” said Dr Kesan.

On April 25, Tuesday, Gujarat CM Bhupendra Patel honoured Tanvi for taking part in Azadi Sate as well as figuring in PM Modi’s Mann Ki Baat, on the eve of its 100th episode on April 30,Sunday.

Dr Srimathy Kesan, who was born in Hyderabad and settled in Chennai, stated SKI to promote scientific and space interests among school students in India. She single handedly conducted many trips of students to NASA, ISRO and other major space stations to educate them. ISRO launched many of her satellites into skies. Some into low earth orbits too.


Mann Ki Baat highlighted remote stories

Dr Srimathy Kesan said, PM Modi in his Mann Ki Baat mentioned several stories from remote corners of India and brought the people behind them into limelight. “PM has an aura around him and we cannot miss it when we talk to him. Tanvi after meeting the PM is inspired now and wants to pursue her space studies, said Dr Srimathy Kesan.
