ISRO targeting Mars


Here is an article in ToI regarding ISRO's plan for an unmanned Mars mission around 2015.




The plan is to have an orbiter around Mars for capturing images. The probe will be studying the Martian atmosphere, ionosphere, magnetic field and weather. Offcourse the quest for water will be one of the mission objectives.
With US, EU, Russia, India, Japan all set for Mars, should not they collaborate? How about an International Mars Mission?
