New Delhi: When India launched Mangalyaan into space two years ago, the New York Times released a cartoon which mocked the country's achievement and looked unpleasant. Mangalyaan was one of the most ambitious projects that Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) had carried out.
The NYT cartoon was considered extremely offensive and later the publication had issued a public apology. Now, after two years, ISRO has created history and set a world record by successfully launching 104 satellites into space on one rocket in a single go.
ISRO's successful mission was celebrated by Times of India in a critical cartoon which comes out as a befitting reply to NYT. While NYT's earlier cartoon represented India as an impoverished man followed by a cow knocking at the door of 'Elite Space Club'.
The TOI version shows various countries knocking at the door, while the Indian man and the cow sit inside the 'Elite Space Club'.
The post went viral and one of the Twitter user shared on social media.
