Amazing rumours have spread for a couple of days regarding the MMRCA (Indian Air Force Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft) or the MRCA Tender which is an ongoing competition to supply the Indian Air Force with 126 Multi-Role Combat Aircraft maybe up to 189 fighter jets.

The Indians have considered 6 bidders so far:

Typhoon (European Eurofighter Consortium)
Rafale (French Dassault)
MiG-35 Fulcrum-F (Russian UAC subsidiary RSK-MiG)
Gripen NG/IN or JAS 39 (Swedish Saab)
Super Hornet F/A-18 E/F (US Boeing)
F-16IN Fighting Falcon (US Lockheed Martin)

As you can watch the video below, two fighter aircraft have been quoted as finalists for the last stage: The EUROFIGHTER-Typhoon and the RAFALE.

However, American and Russian media deem that such statement cannot be true. Official results should be announced soon. Well, wait and see…

Saturday night fever – 1970s Cerrone « Je suis music » with lyrics

All around the thirsty streets
Children cry, there’s no food to eat
Hungry eyes, they’re as cold as ice
And they look for a reason

All alone, the city slaves
choking on the smog they make
Changing the light of day,
as they pray for a way out

We all feel the pain, is it necessary? (CHORUS)
When we feel the pain, better stick together
Music is the way to relieve the pressure
Music on the way, do you get the message?

Ame de moi, je suis music
Chante moi, je suis music

Je suis music
Chante moi
Je suis music

Angry men, and women scream
Struggling with, the lives they lead
Nothing much that can make them strong but the words of a song

People need a chance to play given time they can recreate
That’s the way that tears and hate to the sound of the music

CHORUS

Ame de moi, je suis music
Chante moi, je suis music

CHORUS, etc
