    • Yes, you are right bro. Even this Telescope is also provided after a long time. MANIPUR govt. didn’t support and help before. Even APJ Abdul Kalam awarded him but no govt. Organization awarded him. I heard that this one is also from Minister’s private money not related with govt. In USA, there are many opportunities, but here no one is care to support this kind of talent
