It is a na­tional shame that DRDO and de­fence PSUS are un­able to pro­duce a sat­is­fac­tory as­sault ri­fle for the in­fantry, which is the “sword arm” of our Army, even af­ter 60 years of In­de­pen­dence (“The Mis­sile that Can­not Fire”, April 23). The less said about main bat­tle tanks, air­craft car­ri­ers, combat air­craft, the bet­ter. There is a stand­ing joke do­ing the rounds in Ban­ga­lore about the PSU staff: “Two punches and one lunch and the day’s work is over!” MNS THAMPI, www. in­to­day. com If only DRDO could free it­self from un­holy nexus of de­fence agents, of­fi­cials and cor­rupt gov­ern­ment ma­chin­ery, it could be­come the best or­gan­i­sa­tion in the world and strengthen In­dia’s de­fence pre­pared­ness. But that utopia is hard to come by and the or­gan­i­sa­tion is thereby des­tined to suf­fer in­def­i­nitely. T. JOSE,
