Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry



At 4:40, Rahul, who won gold in CWG, says no help from the government, and no sponsors also. His father has been helping him, but he says it's very tight. I wonder, we have richest sporting body on one hand, and total neglect of other sports on the other.

Their subs can indeed fire, but they have very limited numbers, may be around 100. Would be surprising if they used TH in this strike.

No, it clearly says "payload capacity" and "storage of 70 T canisterised articles". It can't mean payload + canister weight = 70 T.

Gurus, having witnessed the huge advantage heavy class fighters offer in terms of range and payload capability. Wouldn't it be better for us to order few more squadrons of MKIs (~ 320 +) ? Not taking anything away from likes of Tejas. But just that heavies give us much more flexibility
