During his current visit to India, Myanmar's senior general Maung Aye had an important agenda on his checklist. Apart from inking a strategic waterway and road pact opening India's north-east to the Andaman Sea, the general was keen to see if his hosts could help Myanmar acquire a satellite of its own.
Myanmar having a space programme might seem a little like a sci-fi plot, but reality can beggar fiction. The general, ranked number two in the Myanmarese junta, had slotted a visit to Bangalore. And it was not just the city's IT prowess that interested him as it was an engagement at Isro, India's premier space agency, which held his attention.
India's known capacity in space launches of its own and foreign satellites has been a object of admiration and sometimes envy in its neighbourhood. Improved ties between India and Myanmar led the junta to take up what is a fascination for the junta — a presence in outer space — with India.
