Re: Atal Bihari Vajpayee Passes Away

A son passes away, quietly, having done his duty towards Mother India. India had had many PM's, quite a few of them were able fighters even if they fought only for themselves. Only a handful fought unarguably for us. ABV belonged to that rare breed. when he was PM you could sleep easy knowing he wil...

Re: UAVs, Drones, Remote Surveillance Tech

No. ADE calls Swift as UAVTD. I think Tarmak has got it wrong. CVRDE had already designed a 2 ton LG for Rustom. It was designing a 3 ton version. This seems like that. not as per this handle https://twitter.com/Def_PRO_Chennai/status/1025198226587222017 and I do think it belongs to the official PRO.

more ranks actually reduce congestion, which is why number of ranks in civil services have nosed up since 50's. During BN Mullick's era, the next seniormost rank after the chief i.e director was the deputy director. today deputy director is at most a middling rank. see f.e MK Dhar : http://www.sify....
