An Indian Newspaper Just Had The Perfect Comeback To A Racist Cartoon About India's Space Program

The "Elite Space Club" has just been taken down a peg.

Posted on October 30, 2014, at 9:07 a.m. ET

Last month, the New York Times ran this cartoon in response to India successfully launching its Mars Orbiter Mission.

The cartoon sparked a huge backlash from Indians who thought it showed them as backwards despite their technological achievements, with some considering the depiction to be "blatantly racist." The response was so strong that the New York Times took to its Facebook page to apologize.

Now the Hindustan Times has come up with the perfect response, following the explosion on Tuesday of an Antares rocket bound for the International Space Station.

While NYT cartoon was racist, this is a brilliant retort by Hindustan Times. Take a bow.
