"Another nail in the coffin before this Android tablet
lives to fulfill the Indian kids' dreams. Well, not exactly a nail
in the coffin. The tablet might still be here, and at the price
promised but the thing to note is how low the government can stoop
to get bragging rights (and votes). The article elaborates how the
IIT/IISC scientists weren't even aware that such a "project"
existed and they were invited to be a part of it just a month
before Mr. Kapil Sibal unveiled the epitome of Indian innovation to
the world media, telling everyone with gusto how it was a
brainchild of India's premier institutes backed by the
revolutionary and modern government."
