India's maiden mission was a partial success after the lander Vikram lost communication 2.1 kms away from landing on the moon's surface. The lander carried the Pragyan rover.

'Vikram', named after Dr Vikram A Sarabhai, the father of the Indian Space Programme, was designed to execute a soft-landing on the lunar surface, and to function for one lunar day, which is equivalent to about 14 earth days.

According to me, if the lander was named as Gaitonde it would have made a successful landing on the moon because Gaitonde Bhai went to the moon in the early 90s before making a dramatic return to the city he loves. The Pragya rover was to roll down from the lander explore the surrounding lunar terrain, a few hours after the planned soft-landing.
