The country's space research organization (ISRO) is due to fire an orbiter to the Red Planet on Tuesday -- only NASA, the former Soviet Union and the Europeans have previously been successful in operating probes from Mars.

there are oceans of words aged in prayer,
against geometric lines, and cloudbeaten skies;
credulous allure—slowly captivated in hearts fair—
trees and flowers bloomed in grace upon one's eyes.

Stupidity.  They cannot even feed half their population or have regular garbage removal, yet they are trying to explore mars.  Pakistan is even worse.

Yeah, same logic for why they need nukes.  Makes no sense.
