Re: Kerala, Andhra and Tamil Nadu - news and strategy thread

Media has strong roots in southern states since the independence struggle right from the street theatres. It just morphs along with technology. The memes you are referring to were generated with the events happening day to day. The events occurred since JJ was in hospital, Jallikattu, the introducti...

Re: Kerala, Andhra and Tamil Nadu - news and strategy thread

In general southern states give first preference to social mobility. If am more specific about TN, right from the days of Kamaraj, this is the Mantra. This was achieved through many tools, either free schools, free midday meals, quota for BC, free bus travel for students, free bikes for girls etc. T...

Re: Kerala Floods - Aug 2018

This solution is far cheaper and has so many use cases including town and country planning. compared to the kind of loss we faced this time(~4-5Bn USD and loss of lives) this is pennies.

Re: India's Power Sector

Re: India's Power Sector

Theo Sir, Tamilnadu already has 400MW Kadamparai pumped storage in use since 1987. It has more than 2GW potential, but due to the health of SEB it is not proceeding quickly. The Kundah (500Mw) and Sillahalla(1000MW) are in papers since 2000, but still not moving at speed. Attached link for recent CE...

Re: Civil Aviation Development & Discussion

Then there is high chance IR might go BSNL, DoorDharshan, Air India way slowly, all were some kind of national network of yesteryears. Since rail is high capital intensive industry no government can afford to hold its losses perennially and invest on top of it. It will goes into vicious circle and t...

Re: Indian Economy News & Discussion - Nov 27 2017

We cannot hope to become magically competitive just by devaluing the rupee. Especially considering we import >80% of our oil and gas and what impact the devaluation will have on that. While thinking about the oil import, One thing came to my mind is the transportation of coal. Why not go for Pit He...

Re: Indian Railways Thread (Dec 2015)

vsunder Sir, Inspite of all these projects, i fear they are becoming white elephants. Since the operations side is not getting improved and infact getting worse. Take the example of Coimbatore - Chennai, this is one of the oldest FEDL in IR fully welded tracks, the running time of 7 hours 30 minutes...

Re: Indian Economy News & Discussion - Nov 27 2017

Much of the attention of the commentators, on this forum and outside, is focused on economic statistics like GDP, inflation and PMIs, but IMO what truly matters is whether industrial competitiveness is improving or degrading, across a range of industries. In this sense, the picture is mixed: some i...

but can individuals be targetted with fat packages. It will be far cheap and easy to get individuals rather than buying the company. may be if we get say 10-20 people experienced. While they might have luxury of data. They might still be able to set the ball rolling for us. In these matters we real...

Re: Indo-UK News & Discussions- June 2017

There is a huge difference in perceptions on these things, depending on whether one lives in the UK with citizenship or other legal right to stay, or one lives in India. In other words, where one's bread is buttered. It is only natural. One should expect no different, and it would be very Paki were...
