  1. well ... its really proud to see our efforts give fruitful results ... kudos to scientists on successful testing of Agni-5. Have read many comments which says instead of spending money on missiles spend money for food, water and blah blah ... even though we need food and water we are also need missiles like these to protect ourselves from growing intrusions and provoking from neighbor countries like china and pakistan. with the insertions of Agni-5 missile into our defence systems we will surely protect our land ....
