Quick notes: CIA and Cryogenics, Paki Biology...

  • The Kerala Police and IB chiefs were willing tools in CIA's hands.  Don't forget that it was just after this case broke out that the then IB's Additional Director Rattan Sehgal was given compulsory retirement after he got charged with spying for USA.  No doubt the CIA succeeded through this case to thwart India's indigenous development of Cryogenic engine


  • Under pressure from the US, Russia refused to part with Cryogenic technology. But it agreed to provide four more fully made cryogenic engines, taking the number of such engines in India's kitty to seven. The man who then headed ISRO's cryogenic project, Nambi Narayanan, managed to bring in crucial components of the engine from Russia without drawing US attention. When Air India refused to fly in the hardware fearing US embargoes, the ISRO team used Russia's Ural Airlines to transport it in three consignments.


  • Another Bamiyan: Two thirds of some 80,000 books and manuscripts housed in a Lebanese library were torched by Mohammedans.

    there is a possible schism between our research people and the government. remember that most scientists protested against Sonia being made pm. so probably the scientists are being strangled by the political establishment under usa pressure when it comes to developing technology. so air india refuses to cooperate and scientists use Russian airlines.
