I dont know how good his DIP (DRDO) is. Will wait and watch rather than comment with prejudice.

how much royalty or money for product developed does DRDO get? Specifically how much % profit is awarded to DRDO by say BEL or L&T? I think the answer is no but would like to have a confirmation. Isnt it time that DRDO should get some share of the profit the DPSUs make? This way it would reward ...

gopal the T-series also faced problems in the desert heat didnt they? even if the peak heat happens only for a few months, its not just desert heat you want to check, even sand storms and cold desert nights as well as other conditions would also needed to be checked.

With regard to the problems MBT arjun faced during the summer trials, isnt it strange that CVRDE does not have a test range or workshop in rajasthan? It would indeed serve the purpose of testing the combat vehicle well. Such a center will help is testing of not just tanks but also APCs and other veh...

joey, moles are generally protruding out from the skin . I think I have seen the kind of thing you said on the back of my grandfather too. He is still healthy. There is no harm in showing to a dermatologist. Was he hospitalized earlier? The reason I ask is when I had asked one of my doctor uncles ab...

That is really strange man moles are themselves an aberrant growth. With more moles it would also mean more aberrant growth. See the comment on the article. Really strange.

Raju,
I dont think something like that can exist. The number of gene modules a mycobacterium uses for drug resistance cannot be propagated in a virus. It is simply impossible.
I think this is some sort of chain mail you have received.

India to import Chinese vaccine for Japanese encephelitishttp://in.rediff.com/news/2005/nov/17vaccine.htm
A shame when so much money goes into the research in India on it. I know atleast half dozen profs "working" on it in IISc.
Think they can do a bit better.
