Kalpana Chawla who??

Kalpana Chawla, the Indian born American astronaut who perished in the space shuttle Columbia disaster is looked upon as an idol in me homeland i.e. India.. and I can't for heavens sake fathom why??? why is she being held high as an "Indian".. she is NOT an Indian, yes she was born an Indian but when she pledged allegiance to the U.S.A she forsook her Indian heritage, so for me she is another american astronaut who passed away in the disaster and my feelings for her demise are similar to those of the other crew members onboard the shuttle. So the next newspaper article I see about "our valiant kalpana" me gonna burn em papers.. grrrr.
