September 24, 2014 will go down in history as a red letter day. India has successfully placed its spacecraft in orbit around Mars, and has become the first country in the world to succeed in such an inter-planetary mission in its maiden attempt. And now that the Mangalyaan is officially in the Martian orbit, it’s obvious that Indians will want to leave behind their mark in their own quintessentially ‘desi’ ways.
So here we are, reproducing our own feature from some time back, which was created, now it may seem, in anticipation of the big event.
Mr Martian, you have a LOT to answer!
I love you, M-M-M-Mars!
Ek pe ek FREE!!
The essential red soil 'jhol'
Every drop counts, even here!
Remember the gold dream?
Have a Marci-cola!
Spit without a trace on the Red Planet!
Development, development and development!
