hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha….India Ahead of Germany Who prepared this List. Indian engineers cannot build good two way roads…. Joke


Do u know the meaning of technology? I don’t think so. I don’t know from which country u r from but first develop that technology by ur own by which u could take 104 satellites into space in one rocket.

Can Germany sent a Mars mission and sucseed in first attempt. The answer is no. If you think Indian engineers can’t build two way roads then I think you cannot do better than a monkey. Don’t put garbage here man. Idiot. Two way road. Talk with some sense.


indians should first make toilets in their country then send a satellite to mars
