Six Chandrayaan-2 missions or two statues over 6600 crore? With more than 6600 crore put in for Statue of Unity and Shivaji Maharaj statue, India could have instead conducted six Chandrayaan missions and one Mangalyaan mission in the same amount.

Out of the total budget of Rs 978 for mission Chandrayaan-2, Rs 608 crore were spent on spacecraft systems and rest Rs 375 crore were spent on launcher GSLV MK-III.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
