I met Rakesh Sharma – the first Indian to go into space this weekend!!

I was in Wellington this weekend to spend some time with Gaurang, Kangan & Sid and meet Gaurang’s parents. The visit was great but the highlight for me was getting to meet Wing Commander Rakesh Sharma (Retd.), the first Indian to go to space. At first I didn’t realize who we were going to meet because I was still a bit groggy from lack of sleep but then the lights came on and I realized just who I was going to meet. Trust me I was wide awake shortly thereafter. 🙂

We met him twice and I even managed to get a photo with him :). I am not going to go into how/why we met him twice and how it almost became thrice but it was worth it. 😉

Well this is all for now. I need to crash now, will write more later.
