The song 'All Is Well' in the film 3 IDIOTS showed Ranchodas Shamaldas Chanchad aka Aamir Khan trying to fix a helicopter like device, which ultimately records the suicide of a classmate in its maiden flight, will now be used to fight terrorism. The device has been adopted by the security forces of India, including the Border Security Force (BSF) and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), to fight terrorism and counter-insurgency operations.
The machine in the movie, which grabbed eye-balls, is the same as the one built by Idea-Forge, a company founded by three IIT-Bombay alumni. The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) have tied up with Idea-Forge to refine the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and have named it Netra.
What started out in a movie is now going to be used to fight terrorism taking the whole concept of being innovative to a whole new level.
