His tongue is intact so I am hoping he fully regains ability to speak and eat. How do they reconstruct the lower jaw if its completely blown off (I cannot even imagine how horrific it looks). Where does the bone get grafted from?

Re: Indian Army: News and Discussions 11 June 2014

I was reading about Paul Statzer, a US Army staff sergeant who had his jaw and entire left side of his head and a big chunk of his brain blown off but not only survived but became fully mobile and can walk, talk and play sports. I think there is hope for the TA Colonel who got injured and had his lo...

Re: INS Arihant (ATV) News and Discussion -3

It is really surprising to see the lengths some posters are going to prove that the Arihant is not Indian. The post above would have one believe that the Arihant is actually "helped far more" i.e. almost Russian. If it is almost Russian, why then is taking so long to complete testing. Why...
