As everyone celebrates the historic achievement of Chandrayaan-3’s lunar landing at the Moon’s South pole, there are many unsung heroes who played a crucial role in this achievement. These ISRO scientists have worked really hard to make sure as a country we achieve this great feat. Their story is a testament that if we work hard, we can achieve great things.
One of these real heroes is Bharat Kumar, a young man who comes from a small town called Charouda in Chhattisgarh. Even though many people might not know his name, his story is extraordinarily inspiring. He was born in a financially modest family where his dad worked as a security guard at a bank and his mother ran a humble tea stall.

He belongs to a weak financial family. His father worked as a security guard at a bank and his mother ran a tea stall.
Later age he went to Kendriya Vidyalaya Charouda for school. In the 9th grade, he was unable to pay fees, but the school helped by waiving them, he did well in 12th grade and got into IIT Dhanbad. When money became an issue again, business people Arun Bagh and Jindal Group from Raipur helped him. He did excellent in college and got a gold medal with 98% at IIT Dhanbad.
