She came, conquered and flew away after inspiring many lives..." said her father, Banarasi Lal Chawla in the documentary on Kalpana Chawla , Dreams that touched the sky.
The first woman of Indian origin to go into space, Kalpana went from a small town in Haryana, to a NASA space mission. She’s an inspiration for more girls to take up STEM subjects and to dream big.
