Re: Indian Economy News & Discussion - Nov 27 2017

Hi, please keep the discussions on topic. While rises in cost of living impacts everyone, arguing with one another about who's being realistic vs not realistic, is not productive discussion. Instead, it's worth analyzing the existing inflation and CoL indices and presenting your case on what their w...

Another pic of Arihant for proportion reference: https://www.lifeofsoldiers.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/INS_Arihant_actual-752x332.jpg It appears clear that Arihant's raised hump section is nowhere as prominent or long as that of the inflatable boats in pics #2 and #3 above.

Boat #2 and #3 are in a single pic on google earth. Neither seem to be the INS Arihant. Both are about the same length (~120m) and much longer than Arihant.
