Well doen ISRO. Well done. We may be a crowded country, but you've shown us that we are still pretty good at managing space. #Mangalyaan— Ramesh Srivats (@rameshsrivats) September 24, 2014
Please stop obsessing over cheapness of mission. Obsess over efficiency, success, intelligent design etc. Please.— NowAvailableInIndia (@sidin) September 24, 2014
To put distances in rough perspective ...if a 100 m big six at Wankhdede were a moon shot, a mars hit would reach Pune (1000+ times longer)!— Amit Paranjape (@aparanjape) September 24, 2014

We awoke today to a new, Indian view of a distant planet. May it also be a day when the world awakes to a new view of India. @MarsOrbiter— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) September 24, 2014
