^Mangalyaan is just a 'nickname'? Source?

Last time I checked, there are so many problems 'everywhere'; So better keep quiet :-? - Nice explanation when pointing out the anomaly in naming a prestigious project which will be known down to future generations.

Why does ISRO update say "all engines fired by now"? Only one engine, no?

The Mission controllers are all experienced middle-aged men/women. The first picture (2 pages ago) showing young guys must have been a one-off.

ISRO has caught up with live tweets. DD is still maintaining its standard in coverage. Commentary is focusing on dignitaries and decorations more than the actual event.

They should have just handed over the coverage to an ISRO engineer and let him/her do the needful. This nonsense will take some time to erase.
