“India’s successful moon mission is not India’s alone…Our approach of one earth, one family, one future is resonating across the globe…Moon mission is based on the same human centric approach. So, this success belongs to all of humanity,” said Modi , who is in the South African city to attend the five-nation BRICS Summit.
