100 Words Essay On Kalpana Chawla In English

“Do something because you really want to do it. If you’re doing it just for the goal and don’t enjoy the path, then I think you’re cheating yourself.”

This quote was made by renowned Indian-American Astronaut Kalpana Chawla. Incidentally, she was also an aerospace engineer. She holds the honour of being the first Indian woman to step into space. 

Unfortunately, Chawla was one of the seven crew members who died in the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster (her second flight after the first in 1999) when the spacecraft disintegrated into the Earth’s atmosphere on 1 February 2003. She is still an inspiration icon today.
