Engine development has got to happen down the line. But you're right, we wouldn't be where we are now had we not imported the engine.THAT'S YOUR PERSONAL OPINION.
An operational Tejas would not exist if we had prioritised our effort on Kaveri (money cannot hasten engine development, as the Chinks found out)... If imported engines weren't used we'd be tampering with engines upto 2030, instead today we're designing TEDBF from scratch in 1 year!
We can't afford impressive right now. We need to prioritize. Fulfill the minimum requirements.having a 110 kn engine will be a bigger achievement
