Huge applause! Telemetry must have been confirmed.

Congratulations to ISRO and India for a successful orbital insertion (presumably)!

There's a lot of congratulations going on!

I should say so!

Welcome India, to a very exclusive 'club'!

Successful orbital insertion of a spacecraft at Mars.

A huge and heartfelt congrats to the country, and the teams, for making this happen.

PM's addressing the gathering.. (and the world scientific community)

"Today, Mars got a MOM" Don't tell me that movie played on Air India One.

"Mothers never disappoint."

"We're dared to reach out into the unknown, and do what is nearly impossible."
