Not to worry
It is a great Indian quality to be able to never worry.
Even if the IAF had only 10 Mig21 left, they would declare: "Don't worry, the Truth is on our side".
And Truth always prevails!
Let us hope.
Not worried about China selling jets to Pak: IAF

Unperturbed by reports about China selling 36 advanced fighter jets to Pakistan or its plans to launch an intelligence satellite, the Indian Air Force on Friday said there was 'nothing to worry' as Indian armed forces were capable of protecting the country's interest.
"Do not worry and do not make people worry. Our country is strong enough. Our Army, Navy and Air Force are capable of looking after the interest of our country," IAF Chief P V Naik told reporters in New Delhi on Friday.
He was responding to queries about whether reports about China selling J-10 fighter jets to Pakistan, and their plans to launch an intelligence satellite, were a cause of worry for India.
"When a sovereign country interacts with another country, there is no issue over selling weapons. It is up to them," he said on the fighter jet sales.
Air Chief Marshal Naik said several countries had intelligence satellites and there were several types of satellites in space today. "However, we have stated that we are not for militarisation of space and the entire world has said that it is not for militarisation of space," he said.
"What has China been doing? We have nothing to do about it. It is their problem. Let them do anything. Do not worry, we are capable of taking care of the country," he added.
