IMPACT: Embarrassed DRDO Pulls Down Howler Webpage Graphic

Two days after I highlighted a DRDO howler on Livefist, there's fortunately been some follow-up. Following an alert that was sounded yesterday after the post was circulated at DRDO HQ, the people in charge were ordered to immediately dispense with the graphic and re-create it using images of only indigenous weapons programmes. In the meantime, they've replaced the old howler with a static image of the Tejas Light Combat Aircraft (see image). Oh, well. :)

DRDO has got so used to copying that they couldn't resist such simple things. Oh well - Shiv. Decent job of pulling down those babus. A small step - hopefully .....?

Good one Shiv. Some restoration in self-respect thanks to you. "If you come to Tambaram", look up some of old Heber fellas. A drink on us anytime.

Great! that B-Ratshakers - finally can hide in their holes. enough of blind blind blind adamant support of DRDO.

Again, I am not against DRDO. But I am against these B-rats who just want to support DRDO no matter what.

I congratulate DRDO when it I have to, I shake it down when I have to.

The RATshakers mistake patriotism for blind worshop of DODO and other PSUs.

we need to give credit where it is due and if they have done something, i am the first to congratulate them... but not always
