Thanks for the pics hotstuff.
Recently someone had posted pics of another HAL car. I think there was a story in Economic Times about auto industry.

I don't think it is as simple as that. Even Soviet Union had total govt. control of armament industry but look at what all they achieved. I think what lacks here is (a) accountability and (b) interest taken in desi projects by the guy sitting at the top. In USSR, they sent you to Siberian concentration camp if you didn't deliver. Here, you spend your entire day sipping chai and eating biscuits in the govt. office canteen, without any eyebrows being raised. Nehru took great interest and pride in all desi projects. Development of a contemporary jet fighter like HF-24 Marut was a great achievement but after Nehru no one showed any interest in the project or its followup projects, the HF-25 and HF-73. Also the foreign arms lobby is well entrenched in this country and possesses deep pockets to bribe the decision makers who'll always buy foreign stuff even if the locally developed product is better. Arjun MBT outperformed T-90 in all parameters but how many is the Army ordering? 125. And T-90? Over 1000!

I don't think that statement is true.

Yes, this is true.

Had to. What is the commitment exhibited by Govt. to desi projects? How much interest do you think Manmohan Singh takes in these projects? Where are the deadlines?

I share the same feelings.

Hey thanks a lot for letting us know about this place.

I have been in Bangalore for the past 5 months and must have passed on this road a couple of times but never knew about this museum nor did I read about it anywhere.

Will make it a point to visit this place.
