Why are so proud of something that was designed in Russia? Your LCA's test flight last month was a bloody joke. That project started eons ago. As someone said here, it looked like a 'glorified' Bell.
Even with the French technology at hand, it took so long to develop and test that helicopter? A US-made Apache gunship can take them out before they are even air born! You should be thankful that US now has a strategic partnership with India linked to existing and future cooperation on many fronts, including the area of military technology. You are going to need it because, because unlike the Chinese sleeper-agents in the West, your agents are incapable of 'stealing' the secrets from the government agencies and their private-sector partners in the West.
The only thing your agents are good at is turning various ethnic groups around India against each other and sowing the seeds of disunity to serve India's geopolitical ambitions. The Chinese work ethics alone should be more than enough to shatter your empty pride. Here is something else to chew on: in absolute numbers, the numbers of malnourished and undernourished children in India are greater than ALL the children of similar fate in Africa and South America combined.
Your Gandhi family and their British-educated lackeys in South Block and in TN and Kerala ruined Sri Lanka to the point where it now has to take loans and grants from India to rebuild what was destroyed by the very forces your leaders helped engineer. We are not fools. That is why we welcome the Chinese in Sri Lanka. Because, their role in Eelam Wars pales in comparison to India's role in the war. Because, India not only helped engineer the civil war in Sri Lanka, it also 'screwed' the Tamil and Sinhala people by helping to prolong the war. In the end, it let more than 20,000 Tamil people die in the Eastern and Northern parts of Sri Lanka in a single year. Why? Because of the malfeasance, miscalculations and blunders of a single man in the form of Velupillai Prabhakaran? A widow-Kingmaker in India killing the man and his family who killed her husband. But, who will pay for the sins of her former mother-in law who gave the weapons and training on India soil to train for war in Sri Lanka? All you can come with is donation of cement bags, loans to re-build railroad and the IIFA show? You must be thinking Sri Lankans are bunch of fools.
