It was  a day back I was lucky enough to clear the ISRO prelims and now comes the other challenge…this time its from DRDO..The Defense Research and Development Organisation. Wow, what a cool thing would it be to become a Defense Scientist. Alright, lemme see if I can do this one,afterall I have seen these defense scientist kind only in hollywood flicks.
