How do you say "congratulations" in Hindi?

I've no clue, so I'll just say it in English: Congratulations, India, on your successful first moon launch.

This historic occasion also causes me to reminisce about the time, several years ago now, when Reason magazine's Hit & Run blog called one of my Fark headlines the "Headline of the Year". That headline, when India's space program had just been announced, was "India plans two moon missions. First will map lunar terrain, second will establish call center." Good times.
