Known as the Father of India’s Space Programme, Vikram Sarabhai’s interests included space and nuclear energy, architecture, industry and business, institution building, management development, arts, music, and theatre. He was a scientist and an entrepreneur, an educator, and a businessman. When he passed away unexpectedly at the young age of 52, he left behind a legacy few can match, having set up internationally reputed institutions and organisations that have made India proud and put us on the world map.
“Dr. Sarabhai was a young person with great wisdom. There is a French saying that “if age could do and youth had wisdom, it would be a wonderful combination”. Vikram Sarabhai had that combination. He was a fine blend of the
thinker and doer. No one can lead a meaningful life today without combining the two.”
– Indira Gandhi
