Highlights of India Today – 23rd September 2019 issue:
This issue of the India Today delves into what could have possibly gone wrong with India’s ambitious moon mission – Chandrayaan-2, which lost contact before soft landing on the southern pole of the lunar surface.
The mishap took place during a programmed changeover phase of the lander’s descent on the moon – a manoeuvre hitherto untested by Isro and fraught with countless possible variations.
The issue further takes an analytical look into the first 100 days of the second term of the Narendra Modi led National Democratic Alliance government, and what it has achieved so far, and what remains to be done.
In the Big Story section, the magazine discusses how Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar is putting his best foot forward ahead of the assembly elections in the state, due in October.
The issue also follows the constitutional developments of August 5, which revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, and effectively demolished the efficacy of the slogan ‘Kashmir banega Pakistan’. Not surprisingly, Pakistan is hitting out wildly, trying to find a suitable narrative and an action plan that can force India to reverse the decision and also, assure its own people that the government and the army are doing something about it.
