CHENNAI:A message titled ‘ISRO... proud again’ has been doing the rounds on WhatsApp for about two weeks. The message claims that if you click the link at the bottom of the message, you can listen to live radio of any country in the world. While it is true that you can listen to several radio stations live from various countries through ‘Radio Garden’, where the link takes you to, what ISRO has to do with the project is perhaps known best only to the creator of the message.
Radio Garden is a portal that connects about 8,000 stations around the world and broadcasts it to anyone willing to listen. Although the ISRO has plenty under its belt for any Indian to take pride in, the Radio Garden, sadly, isn’t one of them.
