Sheena Rani, a woman of Malayali descent hailing from Thiruvananthapuram, played a pivotal role in the triumphant launch of India’s Divyastra AGNI 5 ballistic missile. Serving as the DRDO Mission Director, she orchestrated the mission with precision, bringing immense pride to the nation with the resounding success of Mission Divyastra. Her exemplary leadership was lauded by none other than the Prime Minister himself, who hailed her as ‘Divya Putri’ during the announcement of the missile test’s success.

The Agni 5 missile, a formidable addition to India’s defense arsenal, boasts a striking range of 5,000 km and carries a payload of approximately 10 warheads. Developed utilizing state-of-the-art Multiple Independently Targetable Re-entry Vehicle (MIRV) technology, this advanced missile is designed to traverse from Earth to space and back again, dispersing into multiple warheads upon re-entry to precisely strike designated targets.

By achieving this milestone, India firmly asserts its strategic capabilities, particularly in response to regional dynamics, notably vis-à-vis China. The successful deployment of the Agni 5 positions India among the elite group of nations comprising the United States, Russia, China, Britain, and France, known for their proficiency in missile technology and defense prowess.
