In the early hours on Saturday, ISRO's highly coveted Moon Mission, Chandrayaan-2 failed to go as per plan, much to the dismay of a billion Indians who had been glued to their television since midnight. Just 2.1 kms from the lunar surface, ISRO lost all contact with the Vikram Lander, which was crucial to their mission.

Later, ISRO clarified that the mission had been almost 100% successful, because the orbiter was safe and would continue with its course. It has also been reported that the ISRO would try to establish contact with the lander for fourteen days. While the mission wasn't entirely successful, Indians have refused to acknowledge it as a failure.

For the past few hours, social media has been buzzing with words of encouragement and heartfelt messages which laud ISRO and its team of scientists. In fact, several netizens have said that victory has just been postponed because Chandrayaan-3 will be a success. Indians are sure that the next Moon mission by the ISRO would be a huge success, to make up for the disappointment. #Chandrayaan3 has been trending on Twitter all morning.
