In my opinion besides writing to Rakha Mantri about Tejas Mk2, there is a need to mention that efforts must be made from HER END to prop up The Kaveri Jet Engine research Project and bring it to conclusion. How many more years do the tax payers have to wait for a successful kaveri for Tejas 1A, Tejas 2 and for AMCA. If I were in her place I would have held captive all the research engineers and research staff within the bounds of GTRE and ADA reseach area for 2 years. No Family, No love, NO kids, no fancy food (only satvik bhojan), the captive staff can talk to wife and kids for only 15 mins per day using a land line. YES this is an extreme and almost in human step BUT VERY MUCH REQUIRED for the successful development of an indigenous jet engine which performs as per expectation.
