Oh no, I missed it too!
It’s now official. The Mars Mission is very much on. And, lo and behold, there are 421 applicants from Bahrain, looking to get a one-way ticket to the Red Planet!
I wish I had known. I would have applied as well. We have planned to move away from Bahrain for a while and never wanted to go back to India. We thought about Australia and New Zealand but age came in the way and I was never interested in North America or Europe.
Nepal was an option, so was Madagascar (of all the places) but never once (shame on me) did we know there were “vacancies” on Mars.
More than 20,000 Indians have expressed a wish to settle down there and 1,259 from the GCC states have planned to set up a permanent base. So, that I missed out will be a lifelong regret. We may not have made it…
