    BBC never ceases to surprise me...they found this story but not the satellite launch today :pound:

    Not that anything is wrong with the article but one wonders about the motive behind it :hmm:

    If not PSLV launch, BBC found out about anti-malaria drug launch. :)

    What is news about a PSLV launch? The news would be a GSLV that didn't explode.

    Half of all Indian marriages occur before 18, this needs to stop.

    I agree. The good thing is that India making progress, albeit slowly. This news article is evidence thereof; and also of women's empowerment.

    I agree. It is always better to provide support to claims. Links and references should be provided, otherwise, it remains an unsupported claim. Armand2REP, take note.
