    Cost of CARE, the re-entry capsule from space by ISRO, for 2 to 3 people is 15 Cr. or $ 2.1 mil. This is peenuts compared to development costs for some of the high end cars. This speaks for the power of design and engineering of products in India. Hope Indian manufacturers realize this and use this to their advantage. MB is already doing this, as it has one of the largest R&D center isituated in India.
