Hailing the achievements of the country's scientists, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said Chandrayaan-2 was a successful mission and it had generated curiosity about science among the youth.

Noting that no country in the world would progress without science and technology, Modi said unlike other aspects of life, people should not expect immediate results from scientific researches.

He insisted that scientific discoveries might not be of immediate help to the present generation but could be beneficial in the future.

"Our scientists worked hard on Chandrayan 2 (mission to moon). Everything didn't go as planned but the mission was successful. If you look at the broader perspective, you will see it is a major feat in India's list of scientific achievements," Modi said while addressing India International Science Festival in Kolkata via video conferencing.

The Chandrayan 2 mission had generated curiosity among the young and the old alike, the prime minister stated.

"It is our responsibility to channelise this curiosity and give them a platform. We have to take science and technology researches forward along with human values. Our country has given several top scientists to the world," he added.
