Chapter 2 - The Espionage

The Americans are so paranoid of India sending a team of astronauts to Mars, that they have decided to activate their sleeper cells which were set up by the Chinese Intelligence Agency. Not that the Chinese were great at intelligence gathering but because they were cheap and any country could outsource anything to them; so the Americans outsourced the intelligence gathering to the Chinese Intelligence Agency who further outsourced the job to the Pakistan's Inter Service Intelligence who had set up their headquarters in India next to the Indian Parliament in New Delhi. They further handed over the job to the Indian Moles who were working for them for money. Many important people in the Parliament, Judiciary, Police and Army were involved in this unholy nexus and the biggest contributor to this was Dr. Rajmohan Shah who liked 'Chicken Curry' for lunch. As soon as the Dollars reached Rajmohan's Swiss Account, he took the file and handed it over to the ISI. When the file reached the Americans, they realized that the blue print was smuggled out of NASA. They were staring at their own research papers, reverse engineered into an Indian Mission!! But what they could not understand was that these papers were rubbished by their research team as they felt that, the conditions inside the spacecraft would not suitable for human existence as there was no room for entertainment, enough food to eat and water to drink. The Indians solved this problem by deciding to send Mumbai Slum Dwellers....anyways they don't have room to live, food to eat and water to drink and no place or comfort or entertainment!

Chapter 1 - The Declaration

Trip to Mars - Indian Curry Style!

It's 2nd January, 2047; 15th of August would complete 100 years into India's Independence and the government of India wants to surprise the world on this occasion! A highly secretive mission is on the way to completion....and the president of India, 'Dr. Rajmohan Shah' has to do the honours of making it public!
There is a particular gait (with a limp) which Dr. Rajamohan has, as he walks towards the stage to break the news; some people think that it is his royal lineage and style which makes him walk like that, but truth was he had an upset stomach caused by eating excessive chicken curry during lunch. He was walking that way to avoid farting loudly! The whole country waits with bated breath as Dr. Rajmohan Shah walks (rather limps) to his virtual holographic podium (everything is virtual in that era as it saves time, money and resources). Finally, he reaches the podium and roars - 'We are going to MARS!'
There is a loud applause in the Parliament and celebration wrecks across the country!
Dr. Rajmohan gives out a broad smile and enjoys the reaction of shock and awe among the dignitaries! (During the applause, gasps, yelling...Dr. Rajamohan passes his fart, as he knew no one could hear the sound of his fart in this commotion)
The shock of the news (and not the fart) could be felt even in the White House! President of the United States (She had many Firsts to her credit - the first Woman President of USA, the first President of USA of African Origin, the first President of USA who had a sex change done to be a woman etc) thinks aloud, how the hell did they do it? We took 70 years to master the abilities to send a human to deepspace; 40 deaths (of cosmonauts) and 100 billion $ later we managed to successfully send a human to mars and get him back in one piece (although he had turned into a psycho!). How the hell, did they manage to make a deepspace program right under our very noses and even manage to develop complex technologies for human survival in deepspace?! Forget one human, they are sending a whole dozen of goddamn astronauts to mars!
I want a report on this project RIGHT NOW!!!she yells at the Head of FNCBSIIA ! (USA had finally got the CIA, FBI and NSA to merge, cause they had started fighting internal wars with each other; so now its called - Federal National Central Beureau of Security Intelligence & Investigative Agency)
