As the Indian Space Research Organisation continues to make efforts to establish link with Chandrayaan 2's 'Vikram' lander, a tweet by Nagpur City Police is winning hearts online. The Vikram lander is now lying on the lunar surface after a hard landing, following a loss of contact minutes before its touchdown on the lunar surface on Saturday. Obstacles on the lunar surface may have been stopping the lander from receiving the signals, Chandrayaan-1 Director Mylswamy Annadurai said on Sunday.
Asking Vikram lander to respond, Nagpur City Police said in a tweet this afternoon that they would not fine it for "breaking the signals!"
"Dear Vikram, Please respond," they wrote, using a folded-hands emoji. "We are not going to challan you for breaking the signals!"
Their sweet post has won them a number of appreciative comments and a lot of praise. It has also been 'liked' over 25,000 times on the microblogging website.
Here is how people reacted to it:
