India successfully launches historic mission to Mars

Impressive photographs appear this morning on the front pages - of the PSLV C25 rocket at the Sriharikota space port, readying for take off. "ISRO sets off for Mars today", headlines the Indian Express. "Orbiter set to propel India into Big League in Space"- is the Pioneer headline.

"PM's Lanka dilemma: To go or not to go for CHOGM" - is  on the front page of Tribune. The Asian Age writes - Two more Ministers on Monday joined the chorus of those from within the Govt. demanding that PM Manmohan Singh give the CHOGM Summit in Sri Lanka a miss.

The positions of political parties on the Election Commission proposal to ban opinion polls and surveys during elections, is also highlighted. The Times of India headlines - "Ban on opinion polls: Congress says Yes, BJP - No".

In the Asian Age we can read...  "The plush 1,20,000 dollar farm where feared Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud died in the US drone strike just North of Miranshah, is just a kilometer away from the Pakistani Army headquarters for the restive North Waziristan region: this proximity recalling the hideout of Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad.

The Tribune quotes J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah as saying at a darbar - "J&K acceded to India and is an integral part of India, there are no two ways about that. He denied using words such as 'conditional' and 'incomplete'.

The Pioneer informs us that 'NOTA' or none of the above option will be printed in pink on ballot papers for the up-coming assembly polls in five states, but for the Lok Sabha elections next year, it will appear in white.
