Aero India 2013- Missing

For a show like Aero India in which so much planning has been done and tax money spent, it is a pity the presence of some senior people unable to attend, was sorely missed by exhibitors who came in the hope of meeting them.
Admiral Devendra Kumar Joshi, Navy chief, was unfortunately on a foreign tour and though some did say this was an aviation-related show, we should remind ourselves of the various navy-related RFPs that are expected and clarifications to be sought. It;s an "unfortunate coincidence," moaned an exhibitor. Another missing peg was the MHA secretary who was stuck at a security conference in New Delhi. Pity we cannot plan our events so they don't clash with simultaneous ones. Or will we need another show to catch up with MHA? We also hear no one from DOMW was present at the Offset Conference!
Also heard at the show- " This is the first time the Army Aviation DG is not an aviator." Fortunately, he wasn't missing!
