‘Rocket Boys’ is not important because it is the story of two scientists. It is important because it is the story of the reconstruction of India, which has pierced the spine and soul from two hundred years of slavery. It is a story of standing on one’s own feet, finding one’s essence, moving forward one step at a time on the path of self-reliance.

rocket boys The biggest thing about the story is that this story is like a fresh breath of air for the people who have seen the stories of Murder, Mystery, Crime, Drugs, Mafia and Cartel. It is good to think that someone even thought that the story of the lives of two scientists can also be told. There may also be some thrill in the story of scientists. People can connect with him by seeing him. This story too can be heard and told. Can be remembered, can stay in hearts.
Rocket Boys Two scientists running in the background of building a new India after the freedom struggle Homi Jahangir Baba And Vikram Sarabhai is the story of. CV Raman also comes in the story and also APJ Abdul Kalam. The narrators have woven the story so lovingly and beautifully that you cannot live without being immersed in its impact. But there is another story behind the main story, which may not be visible if seen with open eyes. One has to go deep into the story to see him.
In all the arts of the world, there is so much power alone that it will not be there in all the powers, forces, weapons and military forces of the world. When the truth is not allowed to be told out loud, then art slowly grabs one end of the truth and bound to it, you go out on your own in search of truth. If all the politics is telling lies by shouting loudly, then art slowly speaks a truth. But his voice is so deep that it is heard far and wide.
Seeing the way the attitude of viewing and showing truth to history has changed in our country during the last decade, it seems as if this country was living in a dark age till now. We have just started walking on the path of progress, progress and knowledge, when the path of the political leadership of the country started turning from left to right, passing through the center and then turned so much that it was as if the waist was bent.
The story of Rocket Boys is not important because it is the story of two scientists. It is important because it is the story of the reconstruction of India, which has pierced the spine and soul in the two hundred years of slavery of the British. It is the story of standing on one’s own feet, finding one’s essence, moving forward step by step on the path of self-reliance, finding and forging oneself.
The point at which the British left this country was a delicate and challenging turning point. India did not have so much resources, money, resources and facilities. But there were sharp minds, lofty intentions, dreams, the spirit to build the country. It was always an option for people who returned to poor, backward countries after studying at Cambridge and Harvard to stay there. Earn more money, live a better life. But he chose to return and work for his country.
We had been plundered and dismembered when the responsibility of forging ourselves fell on our inexperienced shoulders. Therefore, when you want to see your journey, one should not start from where politics is trying to show us. One should start from where the attempt is being made to hide. The truth that the Popular Political Narrative is hiding, the stories show that truth in a variety of ways.
It means to say that there are thousands of problems with this country. There are many things that one is not proud to see and think about. If we look at the history, then even those small dishonesty, lies and selfishness are visible, which is not the golden page of our history story at all. But there is a lot among them, which is such a stage of our history journey, that ignoring it, ignoring whose pride and dignity, we will not be able to understand our history. History is a series of events. Nothing is free in that regard. All the changes are interconnected by an invisible wire.
Reading the story of the making of a new India can be a very emotional and heart-wrenching experience, if the eyes are not covered with the spectacle of ignorance. The narrative of patriotism that is being coined now is not actually patriotism. Because real patriotism is not in denying other countries and religions and proving oneself superior. The real patriotism was the love, labor and dedication that was being done to build this country. Which was being done to strengthen the ground under his feet, to enlarge the sky over his head. That narrative of patriotism was not rejecting anyone, it was standing up for itself.
When the Rocket Boys series is moving towards its end, then the mind starts sinking. At first it would seem that this must be a cinematic fantasy. Otherwise, if someone wants to float a boat in the rain river, then the rocket is being carried on a bicycle, bullock cart. Then you read that true story and are amazed to see that everything happened exactly as it happened.
On November 21, 1963, India launched its first rocket into space from a place named Thumba near Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. The story of his rocket making and traveling to space is like a fairy tale. Some parts of the rocket were carried on the bicycle and bullock cart to the place on the seashore, from where the rocket left in the sky. Vikram Sarabhai’s way of working was such that whether it was the reconstruction of cotton mills, whether it was to launch rockets in the sky, he used to carry the entire ecosystem with him. The entire village was involved in that work along with Vikram Sarabhai and APJ Abdul Kalam.
I do not want to make such personal patriotic remarks that this is possible only in India. But all those men, all civilizations and all countries, who started from the bottom, who have seen deprivation and slavery, who have gone through deprivation, understand the importance of collectivism and taking everyone along. India has a long tradition, from scientists to economists, who tried to understand and explain the development of everyone, with everyone in the real sense. It is not accidental that both the economists who were awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics are Indians, who gave an economic interpretation of the principle of “collective development” i.e. collective development.
The story of Rocket Boys has a political undertone. The language of that politics is not in the great dialogues and slogans of patriotism, but in the cryptic language. She hasn’t gone anywhere, but she is there. Like salt dissolved in the ocean. It is not visible but it happens. If it touches the tongue, then its taste is felt. If it touches the hand, then the whiteness of its salt is left on the skin. The country did not choose the path of light after 2014. The country had chosen the path of light when the British left it in the dark. What we are today was started 73 years ago by those people, for whom all the options were available to leave it and choose a better life only for themselves. But he chose this country. Now it is up to us which chapter we choose from that book of history. It was not even written, or what is being tried to be erased.
