"In 1984, Rakesh Sharma became the first citizen of India to go into space when he flew aboard the Soviet rocket Soyuz T-11. India became the 14th nation to send a man to outer space." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rakesh_Sharma
A very popular conversation: When Rakesh Sharma was asked by then PM Mrs. Indira Gandhi that how India looks like from "ooper" (above), he replied, "Saare Jahan Se Achcha" (best in the world) (from a patriotic poem in Urdu language, popular in India).
Iconic moment, immortalized in Indian history!
