After all, all three of them will be spending the next few months together around Mars.india Updated: Sep 24, 2014 13:02 IST
Maven got the ball rolling by sending out a congratulatory tweet for Isro's Mars Orbiter, while Curiosity welcomed it on the Red Planet with a 'Namaste'.
"Namaste, @MarsOrbiter! Congratulations to @ISRO and India's first interplanetary mission upon achieving Mars orbit," Curiosity Rover tweeted.
Mars Orbiter replied, saying, "Howdy @MarsCuriosity? Keep in touch. I'll be around."
The conversation ended with Mars orbiter going off for breakfast.
Twitterati will surely be holding tight on to their seats, waiting to see what ensues - who will woo who, and who will be #ForeverAlone.
Seems like all these three crafts are going to have quite a rosy stay on Mars.
