"Marriages are made in heaven".Kaveri and Tejas were never meant to be mated and they never will! Most of the time that Kaveri wass tested in the air she blew up,according to reports.She was never fated to fly but must look for another more suitable environment to find a mate.Kaveri's best chance of finding a mate will be one of the IN's corvettes or missile boats of the future,after all the Tarantula class PGG engines are derived from aero GTs.The matchmakers spoke of this option some years ago,but unless they too get off their backsides and start looking at horror-scopes fast,Kaveri will be left on the shelf!
PS:Forget about inviting French beauticians to doll up Kaveri.They will steal Kaveris fiancee from under the noses of her parents,with or without their permission.
PPS:The most difficult thing to do in almost any discipline is to make something smaller,perform better and more tasks.This was predicted by a famous French philosopher about 100 years ago ,who said that concerted and continuing "miniaturisation" of material manufactured objects would prevail and that the globe would be surrounded with a kind of "...sphere",I think he called it the "oosphere", linking minds across continents.Today we call it the Internet!
This has characterised scientific development particularly during the 20th century.Therefore,the concept of Tejas,should be a serious philosophic and scientific study for the simple reason that globally,while many other similar projects have arrived (like the Gripen),Tejas has yet to evolve into as perfect as possible a functioning product as envisaged.Surely the march of human progress and miniaturisation of material components would've helped Tejas to achieve its goal of being the "smallest,lightest,multi-role fighter",.But the very opposite is seeming to appear,a new heavier engine needed to power a larger more powerful bird,Why?
The foll. paper is worth reading to understand the philosophy of change in human civilisation,before we set ourselves the task of rescuing Tejas or morphing it into something else! I'm being serious.http://www.accelerationwatch.com/history_brief.html
