India has a plan to send man to moon. It is better to scrap that plan.
USA had seven missions to Moon. It did not proceed with missions as there was nothing to gain.
Sending man to moon is an expensive proposition. It will cost at least 10,000 crore rupees. At the end you have two men who will spend some time on the Moon and return with something that is not of much use and can be brought by unmanned vehicle as Chandrayaan did.
Science has to be for benefit of people. Individuals may spend their personal wealth on projects that do not benefit humanity but it is not right for governments to spend money on such projects.
India has many problems. Drinking water is a problem in many villages and cities. Bad roads, lack of power, malnourishment are some of the problems. Money should be spent for roads, electricity, education and proper storage of food grains. Care should be taken that it is not siphoned off. Electricity supply for farmers or others should not be free. Those who use it should pay for it. Those who steal electricity should be caught and punished. It is wrong to pass on the amount to other consumers. Money should be spent on primary schools. Money should be spent to ensure speedy justice. All courts should have computers so that when the judgment is delivered copy of the judgement is available. Money should be spent on turning Thar desert into a fertile land. Money should be spent on turning barren lands into forests.
Money can be spent on building bridges, high schools, colleges, institutes of technology and management. Jails are overcrowded. Money can be spent on building jails.
Money can be spent on solar panels for government buildings. Money can be spent on rainwater harvesting.
Money can be spent on walls along the nationâ€™s borders so that there is no illegal immigration and terrorists do not get in.
