    The Tejas Mk1 versus the Kfir Block 60

    Some stupidities have no end. What similarities do you see in these two planes? (Don't say delta wings, that would be childish) Maybe from side angle... Nope , still no similarities! Realize that there is a sea of difference between a pure delta and a cranked delta. The only impact...

    Is Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan better than Lata Mangeshkar?

    Do not compare musical legends. Both of them are god's gifts to us mortals. As for some misconceptions here.... 1. Lataji is not just a playback singer she has done a lot of work with classical base. You have to listen to some of her non filmi songs to realise this. If this sound is not...
