A copy of the Bhagavad Gita, a photograph of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and the names of 25,000 individuals will be carried to space by the Satish Dhawan Satellite, or SD SAT, which will be launched at the end of the month by the polar satellite launch vehicle (PSLV).
They decided to send a copy of the Bhagavad Gita to space on the lines of other space missions that have carried holy books such as the Bible.
