Indian GSLV first stage failure

This is a bummer: /– Indian rocket fails moments after liftoff – Spaceflight Now /– Christmas turns sour for ISRO, GSLV mission fails – The Times of India /– FAILURE: Indian GSLV fails during launch with GSAT-5P satellite – /– Photoblog – Indian space rocket explodes after lift-off – MSNBC – a photo of the failure

Hope they can get the GSLV program on track soon. These sort of problems with new boosters shows how unusual it was for the first two flights of the Falcon 9 to succeed. SpaceX will need a dozen or so successful flights, though, before they can have really high confidence in it.
