Tejas lands on little Chandan’s lap as prayers pour in for speedy recovery

By Anantha Krishnan M
India’s Light Combat Aircraft Tejas on Monday flew into the heart of little Chandan, the ‘young pilot’ currently waging a valiant battle against cancer. From today, Chandan will have the inspiring company of a Tejas model, thanks to the quick response from its creators. The little boy had expressed his desire to own a plane model in November last.
OneIndia’s special report on Chandan, published on February 1, 2015 (http://www.oneindia.com/feature/oneindia-special-only-prayers-can-save-little-pilot-chandan-1639735.html), grabbed the attention of P S Subramanyam, Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) Director, spearheading the Tejas programme.
Subramanyam is said to have read the boy’s report on his phone while travelling for a meeting at the DRDO HQ in Delhi today. “I was browsing through the Google Alerts on my email and found this report with the Indian Air Force tag. It was a very moving report and I was disappointed to know that Chandan had to wait for this long for a plane model,” Subramanyam told OneIndia over the phone from Delhi.
