"There is one aspect of this mission, which I especially want to discuss with you. When the capability of women power is added, the impossible becomes possible," he said.

"Many women scientists and engineers were directly involved in this entire mission, they have handled many important responsibilities such as project director and project manager," he noted.

"We have soared so high because our dreams are big and so are our efforts," he said.

The prime minister said Chandrayaan-3's success is so big that any amount of discussion about it is not enough.
