fter ISRO successfully launched its 40th communication satellite GSAT 31, Mumbaikars fed up with traffic have written to India’s premier space agency to launch a daily satellite between Borivali to Churchgate for office-goers. Inspired by the movement in Mumbai, citizens who have to travel through Bangalore’s Silk Board Junction, Pune’s Hinjewadi, and Delhi’s ITO crossing have also submitted their petitions to ISRO.

“Western Express Highway is dug up, SV Road is dug up, Linking Road is dug up, roads that are not dug up are full of potholes. It takes more time to travel from Borivali to Churchgate by road than it does to reach from Mumbai to Kolkata via flight. The other option is train but the rush ensures that I end up sacrificing a pair of spectacles and a bone every other day,” said Mohit, a frustrated Mumbaikar.
