In the Shadow of the Tower, Dana Girls #3
In the Shadow of the Tower - Leslie McFarlane,Carolyn Keene

On a winter excursion the Danas seek shelter in a cave and happen across Josie Sykes, a girl with a hunched back reading a letter. Startled, the girl lets the wind take the letter and a piece of green paper with it - revealed to be a $1000 bill! A fox takes the paper and vanishes.

 

The Danas do their best to help the distraught Josie find the bill and the letter to no avail. The letter had the only information Josie possessed on her only living family, an uncle. The girls offer to help Josie find a place to stay at Starhurst while she searches for her money and letter and they listen to her tale of woe. Josie has lived most of her life at a home for "crippled children", but was lately accused of theft and ran away because she was afraid they wouldn't believe her explanation for the $1000 bill. She wants to find her uncle, but also a way to live independently.

 

The language around disabled people has changed a great deal in 85 years, Josie is referred to as crippled mostly without malice, it was the appropriate word at the time. The Danas also endeavor to boost Josie up by not allowing her to define herself by her disability or accept the ridiculous judgements she receives from bullies like Lettie Briggs. There's nothing wrong with that side of Josie character. However, when the owner of the fox farm in broad daylight mistakes the teenage girl for a wild animal because of her hunched back and almost shoots her, we begin to have some difficulty.

 

Speaking of difficulty, the plot brings the Danas to their cousin's farm for the Christmas holiday, and, coincidentally, a neighbor has found Josie's letter with the money still inside of it! The issue comes when that neighbor's employer, an artist with a tower studio, has a black housekeeper called Mammy Cleo. Mammy Cleo speaks in dialect, but is shown to be knowledgeable of her employer's work and gives the Dana girls a guided tour of the studio, pointing out paintings of interest. A positive stereotype is still a stereotype, however. McFarlane - or the Stratemeyer Syndicate as they often made very specific instructions in their plot outlines - makes matters worse when we get to superstition and the language used to describe Cleo and other black people who come into the story. The reader is meant to sympathize with the rational Danas as they confront the ignorance and fear displayed by black people confronting Josie's "monstrous" silhouette or the sight of her on horseback. What the hell, McFarlane. What the fuck.

 

The real plot involves art theft and the Danas reuniting Josie with her uncle after Josie runs away. After the worse elements of the book are through, there is some comfort to discover that Josie gets herself a job and makes a career of it on her own, without the help of the Danas.

 

Context is important when reading books from a different era. Language evolves and its important for writers to attempt to tackle difficult subjects, even if they don't succeed. The problems of 'In the Shadow of the Tower' go beyond outmoded language and "cultureal expectations", however. Despite the efforts of the book to provide readers with a mostly positive depiction of a disabled person and the prejudice they face every day, it is undermined by prejudice of a different kind.

In the Shadow of the Tower - Leslie McFarlane,Carolyn Keene

Oh no. I enjoyed the first two - reviews to come, naturally - but the plot here involves a black community that is superstitious to the point of endangering themselves and the wealthy white people they work for. Leslie McFarlane also doesn't seem to be able to write about black people without describing their "rolling eyes" and "great, shiny faces". This was written at about the same time as 'The Mark on the Door'. McFarlane (perhaps at the Stratemeyer Syndicate's behest as their plot outlines were sometimes incredibly detailed and weirdly specific) wrote novels with a distinctly racist vibe in this period.

It is important to note that the production order is governed by the procedures
It is important to note that the production order is governed by the procedures of the Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) and quantities are produced in accordance with the requirements approved by the Government for defence products and systems. However, in order to minimise the threat of debris, the interception was performed against an object moving at 7.  LCA Mk1, MBT Arjun, Multi-Barrel Rocket System-PINAKA, Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) Programme and the recently conducted Anti-Satellite Missile (ASAT) programme have been our other major achievements.The writer, a retired Army officer, is a defence and security analyst based in New Delhi. Termed as Mission Shakti (Power), the target of India’s first ASAT test by the DRDO on March 27 was a satellite in low earth orbit, which was hit with a kinetic kill vehicle. Therefore, all the missiles developed by DRDO have been realized with a significant contribution from the Indian Industries.What are the responses from Indian industry for Make in India? In the past, there have been many cases when defence PSUs have been nominated to produce a weapon system or some equipment.
 
The 13 metres long three-stage missile was fitted with two solid-propellant rocket motor stages and the kill vehicle. The inputs of the users have been consolidated and roadmap has been evolved to offer MBT Mk-IA. We will be offering our technologies to industries for an early realization of products and also to support R&D facilities in the industries.Five years later in March 2019, the Prime Minister announced in a televised address to the nation that the anti-satellite (ASAT) missile test by Indian scientists had destroyed in a three-minute mission a decommissioned satellite nearly 300 km away.India officially confirmed that the ASAT missile used in the test was a Ballistic Missile Defence interceptor and part of the Indian Ballistic Missile Defence Programme.  Dr Reddy spoke about the successful development of many capability enhancing arms and equipment systems made by DRDO and added that for the first time, the theme for the 41st DRDO directors&China famous Aluminum scaffolding tower39; conference is technology leadership for empowering India. Inaugurating the conference, defence minister Rajnath Singh said DRDO has made the defence forces of the country strong.
 
Admiral Singh stated that the Indian Navy is efficiently using Varunastra, Maareech, Ushus, TAL and various other DRDO developed systems. I would consider the missile programme as one of our key success areas.LCA MK-I has been accepted in Indian Air Force and FOC (final operational clearance) was given during Aero India Show 2019.K.The interceptor, a Prithvi Defence Vehicle (PDV) Mark-II, had a hit-to-kill capable kinetic kill vehicle. We have been enabling Indian industries with R&D activities also. I am optimistic about the weapon systems being produced by the private industries in the near future. He was confident that the future wars will be won with our indigenous systems. Describing DRDO as the main centre for indigenous research and development, he expressed confidence in its likelihood of producing world-class weapon platforms and systems like combat vehicles, missiles, multi-barrel rocket launcher, unmanned aerial vehicle, radar, electronic warfare systems, combat aircraft, propellants and explosives now and in the near future.What are DRDO’s plans for the future?DRDO has set a target for itself to achieve a complete self-reliance in terms of missiles, radars, sonars, torpedoes, armaments and EW systems.
 
This is a major boost of ToT to the defence industry for end use of the Armed Forces.Reiterating the “Make in India” motto, Mr Singh mentioned that the government is leaving no stone unturned in the areas of investment facilitation, skills enhancement, intellectual property protection and manufacturing infrastructure. Satheesh Reddy said that although some previously developed sub-technologies were used as a basis, the interceptor was a completely new missile capable of shooting down targets moving at a speed of 10 km per second at an altitude as high as 1,200 km.
 
He also urged the DRDO fraternity to imbibe the working ethos of former President A. Mishra, too participated. Dr Chitra Rajagopal, DG (Systems Analysis and Modelling) stated that DRDO is committed to equip our Armed Forces with internationally competitive systems so that they have a decisive edge in the battlefield. Our Industries have the capability to produce the numbers demanded by users based on DRDO technology. The interceptor, a Prithvi Defence Vehicle (PDV) Mark-II, had a hit-to-kill capable kinetic kill vehicle. HAL is geared up to produce these aircrafts as per scheduled requirements.Indian Armed Forces are procuring ready-to-eat meals, survival ration # and emergency flying ration products from companies that have acquired ToT from DRDO. We shall use indigenous resources to develop major platforms and weapon systems. We have been supporting the industries with our technologies in order to enable them to produce indigenous systems for the armed forces.
 
Our focus will also be to support Start-ups through Technology Development Fund (TDF). With technology in defence sector changing fast, India is left behind because products that are “two steps ahead” come into the market “even before we conceptualise a system”, Mr Modi said. He commended India’s first test of such technology as a major breakthrough that establishes it as a space power and the fourth country to have used such an anti-satellite weapon after the United States, Russia and China.S.4 km per second at an altitude below 300 km. Would you like to share what was the work done on both these systems to make them acceptable to the users. DRDO chairman G Satheesh Reddy In August 2014, Prime Minister Narendra Modi sent out a strong message to Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) by flaying it for what he referred to as harbouring the “chalta hai” (lackadaisical) attitude. We are working on the cutting-edge technologies which will be required for futuristic weapon systems.Dr Mishra began his talk referring to a new initiative suggested by PM Modi that young scientists below the age of 35 years be given an opportunity to innovate and explore frontier areas and commended DRDO for setting up five young scientists’ laboratories working in five niche technology areas like artificial intelligence, quantum technologies, cognitive technologies, asymmetric technologies and smart materials.
 
We are also fully prepared to develop new advanced systems or adopt/modify existing systems for different requirements projected by agencies involved in counter terrorism and counter insurgency activities. Dr Mishra then suggested three R’s, requirement, resources and relevance, as key factors in determining our country’s quest for advancement in emerging technologies. For us, each one of these achievements is important because it has established maturity of technologies within the country and helped us in achieving self-reliance over a period of time.At the Vibrant Goa Global Expo and Summit 2019, held at Goa University, Taleigao, Goa, between October 17 and 19, DRDO signed 30 licensing agreements for transfer of technology with 16 Indian companies, including three start-ups. He congratulated Dr Reddy and his staff for achieving a 100 days’ target and identifying milestones to commemorate 75 years of Independence as well as a roadmap for five years. However, with the ‘Make in India’ policy more and more private industries are willing to invest.Air Chief Marshal Bhadauria appreciated DRDO's work in electronic warfare technologies, radars, composite materials for the light combat aircraft (LCA), airborne early warning and communications system, Astra and various other technologies.
 
There was criticism reported in the media about the Arjun Main Battle Tank and the Tejas Light Combat Aircraft. The integration requirements for weapon system are capital intensive; which was one of the deterrence for participation of private industries in these fields. On October 16, principal secretary to the Prime Minister, Dr P.General Rawat felt that DRDO has made major strides to ensure that needs of the services are met by providing various systems like artillery gun system, mines, anti-tank missile systems, and do on.The list of weapons and equipment produced/successfully tested by DRDO since 2016 at least is long and impressive and has proved that where there is political will, sound direction and support from the government, DRDO can make India's armed and security forces stronger and better equipped. It has gone through the tests also. Some reports stated that the achieved accuracy was of a few centimetres. He also appreciated the capabilities of LCA Tejas and asked DRDO to develop the next generation aircraft AMCA, harnessing the technologies and experience of LCA. Some of the major products for counter terrorism and counter insurgency operations are insas rifles, weapon locating and tracking systems, remotely operated explosive and breaching devices, multi-mode hand grenade, less lethal plastic bullets, remotely operated vehicle, different types of jammers and low-cost surveillance systems. DRDO Policy and Procedures for Transfer of Technology to support industry, were released and the new website of DRDO was launched. What is the present status?The response from Indian Industries for “Make in India” has been phenomenal.
 
Abdul Kalam and to aim for technologies that remain contemporary for the next 10-15 years. In addition, a lot of EW systems for land, air and sea have been developed for surveillance and counter-measures.Which arms/equipment have been produced to counter terrorism and which of them have been/will be produced for Central Armed Police Forces and state police forces?Many products developed by DRDO have found application in Counter Terrorism and Counter Insurgency operations. Dr Reddy also stated that the interceptor missile is capable of shooting down all the satellites present in Low Earth Orbit. to provide inputs to weapon systems. DRDO chief G. We have worked out our plans and roadmap for 2-3 years, 5 years and 10 years to achieve self-reliance for defence equipment. The missile reportedly hit the satellite with an accuracy of less than 10 cm, which is comparable with the best reported performance of ASAT missiles.Many of DRDO’s achievements have proved to be good technology demonstrators, particularly in the field of missiles, but have they been produced in enough numbers?We are following concurrent engineering to manufacture the missiles through our production partners.
 
A number of sonars have also been developed for Indian Navy. Defence PSUs have been traditionally nominated to produce weapon systems because required infrastructure for large scale integration was not available in private sectors till a few years ago.The inaugural function was attended by national security advisor Ajit Doval and the three services chiefs, General Bipin Rawat, Admiral Karambir Singh and Air Chief Marshal R.MBT Arjun is one of the most potent fighting platforms in its class. We intend to have no import for these systems in the next four to five years’ time. He urged it to complete its projects before time to put India ahead in the world.The 41st DRDO directors’ conference was held on October 15-16.Mr Doval appreciated DRDO for doing commendable work despite all challenges. We are also looking at creating a pool of researchers, in the academia, by carrying out joint research in areas of mutual interest.K.J.Missile programme a key success: DRDO chiefWhat are DRDO’s outstanding achievements?DRDO in the last six decades has achieved major successes in terms of technologies, products, processes and systems.Two compendia, namely the DRDO-Industry Partnership: Synergy and Growth and DRDO Products with Potential for Export.P.
 
While these products with high nutrition value and higher shelf life cater to the requirements of the Armed Forces deployed in inhospitable terrain, these technologies are also useful for the larger interest of society. Bhadauria all of whom addressed the audience. For most of these systems, we are one among 5-7 countries in the world to have developed such capabilities independently.  Apart from that we have also developed various kinds of radars for different roles like surveillance, tracking etc. Time and cost management of all projects is another priority area for us. Dr Reddy said that the propulsive power of the interceptor missile can be increased to make it capable of targeting satellites at medium altitudes. He stated that the DRDO has a seminal role in making India technologically strong and that India should develop critical technologies indigenously
