When was the last time you looked up into the night sky and marvelled at the beauty of the universe! For millennials, summer evenings were a time for family gatherings, followed by nights spent at their terrace, gazing at the numerous stars, imagining the space beyond human existence. However, rapid urbanisation and new comforts have confined people to the four walls, making them unaware of the magic of napping under a starry canopy. To revive this long-lost activity, particularly for youngsters and bring them closer to the science of the natural world, Tirupati’s All India Radio (AIR) and Regional Science Centre (RSC) have teamed up for organising a live interactive programme - ‘Randi, Chusoddam...Taramandalam’, roughly translated as ‘Come, let us view the constellations’!
