Great build up Shankar, but unsatisfying resolution Some nitpicks: Pak prez becoming the spokesperson of the terrorists is far fetched.

A real bummer that my trusted camera ran out of batteries before taking any Dhruv pictures :( :( , and I had no time to run around and buy more. CR123s have a reputation to die without warning :mad: . I had a couple of friends snap pictures, and so I'll post the scans when I get the copies. Amarko.

PV1 also seems to have a rectangular inlet just after the air intakes, any ideas what it is? See Tejas01.j...
