Nothing against Yuri Gagarin here, but check out this:
According to Russian cosmonaut Viktor Savinykh, the city of Mumbai, India should have a monument erected in the name of the late Yuri Gagarin in order to “further boost the Indo-Soviet relationship.”Was it the reporter or the Russian cosmonaut, but somebody needs a heads-up there: that empire is dead. Much deader than Yuri Gagarin, so live with it, folks.
Yeah, and that monument: it couldn't hurt. Go for it.
