Indians around the world got a special Diwali message from outer space as the Indian-American astronaut Sunita Williams sent out warm wishes on the occasion from the International Space Station. Floating upside down in the space station as she appeared on the screen before the Indian tricolour for a local TV show, Williams said, "I just want to wish everybody in India and people of Indian origin around the world a happy Diwali. It is a wonderful festival and I am happy we are part of it up here at the International Space Station."
