A tryst with rocketry

A tryst with rocketry: Though the book is an interesting read about the formation of ISRO...

Excerpts:
"ISRO A Personal History R Aravamudan with Gita Aravamudan 
HarperCollins 240 pages; Rs 399 
If you are unfamiliar with the Indian space agency, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), then it is firmly recommended that you begin reading this book from its annexure right at the end. Before you get to the launching of any rocket, you first have to swim against the swell in an ocean of acronyms; it appears the folks at ISRO have been quite fond of them since the agency’s humble inception in the 1960s."
