In the English language NDTV news channel report above the head of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) K. Radhakrishnan says he expects his government to approve a seven-year human spaceflight programme by mid-June. NDTV is an Indian 24-hour news channel, India has three English language 24h news channels; yes you read that right, three 

Hopefully the human spaceflight programme will see more success than India’s latest rocket launch that saw its cryogenic engine powered second stage tumble to failure. According to ISRO’s official statement the second stage’s engine, fuelled by liquid hydrogen and oxygen, did ignite. In this report ISRO denies the cryogenic engine was the cause of the failure while this article says it did fail and the country would have to buy Russian technology – unlikely in this blogger’s view
