    From the days when I used to be a rocket engineer. Assembling one of the earliest test rockets of ISRO.. some four and half decades ago.

    Back then .. we did not have modern computer, not even proper calculators... everything was on slide rule calculations, and surprisingly accurate it was. — at Thumba.
