Kal humara Chandryaan 3 apne mama ke ghar , yaani ki apne Chanda mama ke ghar pahuchega. Kal humare bachpan ke kisse kahaniyon ka chand apne premika ke chehre ka chand apne , Vrat aur tyoharon ke chaand apne desh ki pahuch mein hoga. Ye uplabdhi iss khel ke harr uss khiladi ke liye ek sandesh hai , ke jisne bhi apne dil mein kuch karne ke liye thaani hai , iss dil ne humesha uski maani hai.”
