Indian actor Prakash Raj has provided further explanation for his recent tweet regarding the Chandrayaan-3 mission, which included a joke involving a “chaiwala” or tea seller. The tweet garnered widespread criticism, prompting Raj to clarify that the joke was a reference to an old anecdote about a Malayali chaiwala during Neil Armstrong’s moon landing. In this jest, the chaiwala had set up a shop on the moon and helped Armstrong assert his status as the first man on the moon to outdo the USSR in the space race. Raj addressed his critics and shared a link to a blog post that delved into the history of the joke.

Meanwhile, the tweet also highlighted the significance of the Chandrayaan-3 mission. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is aiming to achieve a remarkable milestone by successfully landing the Vikram Lander on the lunar south pole. If successful, India would join an exclusive group of countries, including the US, Russia, and China, who have achieved this feat. As of the latest update, the Vikram Lander is conducting de-boosting manoeuvres and scouting potential landing sites above the moon’s south pole.
