Re: Rafale & MMRCA News and Discussions-9 August, 2014

When Dassault Aviation asked HAL and India to provide documents and agreements which Russia and India had agreed on for TOT and manufacturing of Sukhoi-30MKI in India. This was funny. God only knows what the french were thinking when they put up such a request. While Rafale is a good choice we shou...

Re: Breaking news: Coast guard intercepted terrorist boat

Thank you for putting it across politely. :rotfl: chackojoseph ji, The word 'encounter' I think was introduced by me in this thread.

Only one nitpick:

The desire for 'equality' in fact ended up [getting used for] creating a deep enemity between two friends which need not have happened at all.
