    Professor, you seem to be quite taken in by the idea that any given country will provide crucial defence technology to India . This notion runs deep in our procurement policy too ,this false sense of hope that other people will just give their golden eggs laying chicken has to be flattened out irrevocably, and focus solely on fully funding domestic R&D which is India’s sole hope in acquiring technology.
