AIM is just a motormouth hack who has shown his poor grasp of subject matter time and again. Time to update BR database of DDM with name in turd brown letters. Wasn't there a thread on BRF to track DDMs?

Mitra is arguably the worst. A hotel management grad with some gas degree in "security studies", zero background in any serious technology oriented role whatsoever, goes around posturing as a "defence analyst", name calls an IAF TP as an "adrenalin junkie" (for merely expressing pride in indigenous programs) and calls Indian IT workers as "cyber coolies". I doubt he'd be competent enough to do a hard working janitors role let alone compete with the afore mentioned desi dudes he expresses contempt for. Wonder how we as a society, produce so many good for nothing jokers.


Some of us need to have a go at this Mitra fellow on Twitter to expose his own credentials. Hotel Management degree? And he's talking about defence and technology? So basically anyone can become a defence journo in India.


Its fun to tear down such fellas once in a while. But its a tiring job and one with less bang for the buck. Best it to write articles and put your ideas out there afresh. BRF has good potential to become a counter force. But it needs consistency in churning out high quality articles.

He was panned quite vigorously by several people on twitter after his ridiculous Su-30 thermoclines theory.

He's been BS'ing people for a long long time and many got convinced by his BS too. He's just such a motor mouth that he occasionally puts a foot in it and gets caught out.

In twitter, accuracy does not matter, it's a volume platform.

I agree with JayS! The only way to counter rubbish to present a better alternative with facts and figures. Let them prove those wrong!

They won't. They would simply ignore and let the factual counter die disengaged.

The only way to counter is what the RW media like OpIndia, Swarajya etc are doing; being loud and active continuously to ensure the view point remains alive.

It's a 24/7 job, no middle ground there. Amateurs can't do it; not because they are not knowledgeable but because it is not their daily bread and butter. A solitary occasional blog or paper or counter does not achieve much

What is holding up the production of the LCH? Has the order for the LSP been placed? I think the actual order is still not been placed.
The IOC was received a long time back. In fact by now, the 15 LSP helis could have been produced. What is the hold up?
Is there some work going on with the LCH? Maybe like increasing he indigenous content by indigenizing some of the LRUs etc?

Maybe someone like RaghuK might be able to give some info.
