Hi Ajai,
Suddenly every missile launch has the word text-book launch.. is it because we have advanced in our missile field? or we have able to import advance weaponry from other countries?

Great news. Although a press release with DRDO cliche such as "text book launch" would b just fine !

No, it's because we import phrases like "text-book" launch from other countries!

Bravo!

Now Indian flags can flutter over the sinopaki occupied mountains and they will never come to know as to what destroyed them.
