Sethusamudram Project Facts Vs. Myth
#10
[quote=narayanan,Mar 10 2007, 09:20 PM] My concern about the opposition to the project is precisely that the points made in the oppostion petitions etc. do not make sense, but are ascribed to people with credentials that should be impressive. So I do expect to see explanations whose lucidity makes it clear why these people have impressive credentials. So far that is not happening. Otherwise it tends to validate that recent book by a couple of ppl who claim that India is basically a society where "Social Position" is all that matters, not common sense.

This is an irresponsible, sweeping comment. Uncalled for. Any commentator will do well to first read the superb piece of work done during the feasibility studies and detailed environmental impact evaluation etc. all available at http://sethusamudram.gov.in Indian scientists involved in this work are not dumbo-s.

The problem with the project is that all these evaluations are pre-tsunami. Politico-s intervened and prevented a complete re-evaluation of the earlier studies based on the knowledge gained from the devastation called tsunami which was a new experience for at least four or five generations. If all the five alignments considered over various points in time had been re-considered afresh, a sensible solution would have been found. Some supremo's were in a hurry to pocket 60% of the 2k crore project money. That is the going rate for commissions. And, of course that 60% of 1k crore gets raked in every year to keep dredging till waves cease to break the kerala back-waters.

When reason fails in a political system and when the bureaucracy plays chamcha to the political master, all logic fails and all reason collapses. Stop the project as presently aligned, save ramsethu and still achieve whatever one wants to achieve with kerala-tamilnadu naval integration. Surely, oil will not move through this channel. Pipelines are a lot more reliable and cheaper criss-crossing the entire nation in a grid already. Sure, Kerala prawns can be tried out on Tamilnadu restaurants. Carry on them kattamaraans across the Sethusamudram Channel; sure make money, who prevents?
