What is Indian thug life like?

'

On September 28, 2014, New YORK TIMES published a cartoon on India’s successful Mars mission.

\r\n\r\n

It was a great moment for any proud Indian as India successfully put the Mangalyaan robotic probe into orbit around Mars.

\r\n\r\n

This moment was special for India as we succeeded in our first attempt - an achievement that eluded even the Americans and the Soviets.

\r\n\r\n

Let me tell you that only the US, Russia and Europe have previously sent missions to Mars.

\r\n\r\n

However, some Elitist mindset newspapers mock India’s achievement as :

\r\n\r\n

\r\n\r\n

Opinion | India’s Budget Mission to Mars

\r\n\r\n

The cartoon showed a farmer with an ox knocking at the door of a room marked Elite Space Club where two men sit reading a newspaper on India's feat.

\r\n\r\n

The cartoon was carried with an article titled: India’s Budget Mission to Mars.

\r\n\r\n

For your information, the total cost of the Indian mission was put at 450 crore rupees ($74m; £45m), which makes it one of the cheapest interplanetary space missions ever.

\r\n\r\n

The interesting fact is the budget of Hollywood movie Gravity was 100 million USD

\r\n\r\n

Anyway,

\r\n\r\n

On Feb 2017 India has created another history by successfully launching 104 satellites on a single mission, overtaking the previous record of 37 satellites launched by Russia in 2014.

\r\n\r\n

The funny part was that, of the 104 small satellites, 96 belonged to the United States while Israel, Kazakhstan, the United Arab Emirates, Switzerland and the Netherlands were the other foreign clients.

\r\n\r\n

In response to the distasteful cartoon published by the New York Times in 2014 weighing in ISRO’s Mangalyaan mission, we published this one.

\r\n\r\n

Note that the farmer’s Moustache is pointed down in the NYT’s cartoon, while in the second image it is swirled up as a sign of swag.
