    R.I.P. Baldy. Great guy. Not in a position to write an obit today — some rare occasions when we journos too get overpowered by strange feelings. I had sent him a bouquet when he took over as the marketing chief. He had called me and thanked for the 'Singh is King' piece on Tarmak007. We will miss you Baldy.

    Shiv, why are you presuming that it's suicide? Let a full investigation be done first.

    Is it a suicide or there is a foul play to give a setback to India's indegenous aircraft programs ?

    I have noticed some trends worldwide related to death of Indians under suspicious circumstances. This may sound like a conspiracy theory but I think this may be part of a Sino-Pak or US plan to eliminate Indians who can possibly contribute strategically to the Indian nation. Examples include :
    1. Death of a prominent Indian mathematician who mentored Google founders. Died in a US swimming pool some 2-3 years back.
    2. Strangulation of a Tamil Nadu nuclear scientist who worked in the TN nuclear plant – may be to access sabotage material in case of a war.
    3. A few others I have to recall.

    "
    Remember when you gaze on Sri Guru Nanak Sahib,
    He gazes on you. When you behold Him, He the All-Merciful Lord,
    casts his glance of mercy on you and when you contemplate and meditate on Him,
    the All-Loving Guru, out of Compassion accepts you in His Holy folds.
    In this holy process, the Great Jagat Guru (The Enlightener of the world)
    leads you from Darkness to Light, from Death to Life Eternal."

    Shiv Sir,

    While I really appreciate the concern and sorrow for this isssue, I think all of us should also provide the family and loved ones space and minimise over-exposure. If it was a suicide, I don't think anyone is helped by conspiracy theories and name calling. I certainly wouldn't appreciate a lot of loudness by folks who know nothing about the truth if this were in my family.

    Common Sense: I take your point. There will be no indiscrete posts, rest assured. And what I've posted now is what the police has released to the press and wire services.

    Very shocking news!! I think a detailed impartial investigation needs to be done.. It's a great loss to India's indigenous aerospace development.. Anybody responsible for the tragic death should be punished.

    Beeing involved with the LCA Programme must be the cause.

    … and there were reports that Homi Bhabha, the founder father of India's nuclear program, was also probably bumped off in the early 1960s in the air crash.

    v.n sinha

    in HAL ex-servicemen are over loaded and pressure is also more.
    They are unable to express their grief.
    For this we are only responsible as there is no coordination between officers and workman(Retd ex IAF)
