    Re: An ode to the astronauts

    Dear Malathi,

    A wonderful poem.

    You have expressed the sentiments on both the astronauts side and our side very nicely.

    Keep posting.

    Today is Kalpana Chawla's birth anniversary. This poem was written by my daughter on her demise. I am sharing this in memory of her.

    Very lovely Pushpa Ma'am.
    The poem is apt not just for the Columbia astronauts, also to - the Challenger crew, Apollo I crew, and numerous test pilots who gave their lives for the cause of space research.

    Dear Satchi,
    Thank you and I will also convey your sweet appreciation to Malathi. Having grand children at home she doesn't get free time as before.
