April is the cruellest month and 3 hat-tricks

April is the cruellest month, said the famous poet T.S. Eliot.

But for Indian aeronautical engineers, April 2012 will go down as a great month, says the Chief of India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Dr V.K. Saraswat.

The reason is a hat-trick achieved by the country’s aerospace community. The launch of Agni V, the longest range ballistic missile, followed by the placing of RISAT-1 satellite in orbit and finally, the success of the naval version of the Tejas (LCA).

These events have clearly demonstrated the maturing of technological and industrial capabilities in these areas
