me too. :)
in fact, everybody is proud of ISRO.
i think this was the first time two satellites were launched into orbit at one go.
also, this time, PSLV had the heaviest payload! great, isn't it? :)

misplaced sense of patriotism/jingoism...

what are you proud of? that that a few people totally unrelated to you launch a satellite? or are you proud that you did not have any part to play in it, or is it despite that?

YOU are proud of THEIR achievements? why? who gave you the right to? if being from the same geographical/demograpic location is the reason, i am sorry

I cud never understand people's capacity to bask in the glory of others, be it compatriots.

I wonder if they share the feeling of guilt too when they read about rapes and murders.

Patriotism, the last refuge of the scoundrel.

Corollary: Vicarious pride, the path of the worthless?
