Re: Neutering & Defanging Chinese Threat (15-11-2017)

SSridhar may be, we are half as clever as compared to GoI. But time to time, I am surprised by the decisions taken by GoI. There are no way to find, why much stupid (sorry for using the word) decisions are taken? Let's hope, GoI and FinMin have a better understanding of the situation and walk off fr...

It will ruin their industries and innovation. Like RBI, I would let the ASEAN or whoever else want t...

NASSAM-2 is a indeed a stupid decision. It will make sense to buy more armed drones if available. Or finalize transport fleet contract.

God only knows what is blocking additional 20 Tejas MK1 plus MK1A orders? Awaiting for Tejas moving up north by end of this year :D
