The Indian Air force wants "trans-oceanic" reach , ISRO wants to put an Indian on the moon, Vidarbha farmers want a life

Three un-related news items that, in reality, are closely related.Comments in brackets are mine.
****************************
Gandhinagar: India needs (or wants?) an aerospace command to exploit the outer space and it will be established soon, Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal SP Tyagi said on Sunday.

The Indian Air Force is in the process of establishing an aerospace command to exploit outer space by integrating its capabilities (can you pl learn to fly the Mig 21 properly instead?), he told reporters here.

"We are an aerospace power having trans-oceanic reach (fat use it is to us). We have started training a core group of people for the 'aerospace command'."

The IAF Chief was non-committal on exact time frame of setting up of the aerospace command (means you will not stop till you waste tens of billions of dollars in this unnecessary enterprise).
***************************
Nagpur: Five cotton-growers in Vidarbha region of Maharashtra have committed suicide after crop failure, taking the number of such suicides to 33 since the New Year.

Two of the five farmers who ended their lives on Sunday hailed from Akola district while one each was from Buldana, Nagpur and Yavatmal, Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti (VJAS) president Kishor Tiwari said here on Monday.

In the 72 hours preceding this tragedy, eight other farmers had ended their lives, Tiwari said.

The previous year's toll in Vidarbha was well over 1,000 - almost at the rate of 100 suicides a month.
*****************************

Bangalore: An Indian will walk on the moon in 2020. Or so the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) maintains.

On ISRO's giant leap forward, Nair said, "If humans do not venture into space, the (our/my) future will not be bright. I don't think we can lag behind in this race. We must be in the forefront."

The budget for the man-in-space project is estimated to be Rs 10,000 crore-15,000 crore. The moon mission will cost much more (and money grows on trees in India).
