Chandrayaan Indian shining again?

Chandrayaan, the indian mission to moon, was a success. I am proud that our scientists could achieve this, but I wonder how this will get translated as Roti, Kapda, Makan to the Indian poor.

The money is spent to make the middle class, scientific community and NRIs proud. But is this expenditure justified to satisfy this small minority?

I would have been proud if India did something different. Not re-inventing a wheel Soviet Union and America did so many years before.

I think India should really shift focus towards the poor and Indian middle class should understand that India can grow only by creating a strong village economy.
