A bizarre video is doing rounds on social media where for the first-time ever in the history of Indian space mission a man sends rockets to space with a cigarette. The Twitterati called him desi Indian scientist for NASA. This is something you should not try on your own and it should be noted that smoking cigarettes are very injurious to health. In the video, an unidentified man can be seen standing on a road lighting fireworks using a lit cigarette that’s between his lips. Netizens were going gaga with this man, some lovingly calling him Rocket Uncle.
The man launched 11 rockets in 20 seconds with his lit cigarette. Rocket Uncle was lauded by many on social media. Many called him an immediate competitor to Nasa.

He is a farmer by profession and also runs a small cracker factory in the village. The video was made when he welcomed his leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy during his padayatra aka Praja Sankalpa Yatra.
