R.I.P Brothers

The Russians are saying that Russian batteries were not used & the batteries were Indian .

Therefore , the only other cause could be the leaky Type 65 torpedo..that still using peroxide fuel.

Was it a terror attack?

Whilst the destruction of a submarine would effect the particular navy , the destruction of sindhurakshak's destruction comes as a much bigger blow to the IN than the impact of destruction of a single submarine would have on a particular navy..Why is it so?

Some points that come out of such

1) Every facet of any arm of the forces has an impact as it has a job to do individually. But for any one single asset to have such an impact singularly shows the MoDs not allowing Navy to be up to speed. For how many decades has the navy augmented for better and increase in strength of the submarine arm...contrast this to the MoD and its malices such as MDL working for it.

Compare the Increase in threat perception, adversaries strength increasing to MoD taking actions to counter that..it shows the MoD worked i such a way that it reversed the Navy's trend) just like it did for the IAF and IA)


2) Sindhurakshak may have been IN frontrunner , but how come a 1997 built is a frontrunner in 2013. Whilst modifying it, how come MoD didn't envisage the need of more such especially keeping in mind the IN submarine's negative trend.

3) Chidambaram keeps citing economical down trend....In the 2007 to 2009, he was showcasing himself as a hero when global economy had taken a hit and India was shining....why didnt the FM ,MoD, RM,Supreme comander of India's armed forces swing into action during that time...harnessing the fact of a stronger Indian economy vis a vis production and jobs needed in europe and elsewhere, which would have given us a positive trend in the bargain ratio...The MoD Slept, MDL kept sleeping, the RM probably didnt know and the supreme commander of India's armed forces....well s/he still dont know what their job encompasses of


4) The scorpion making in India is a joke....The vigilance dept is a bigger joke..The idiots in the vigilance dept dont know head or tail technically or otherwise of what they were/ are and will be probing. Their shelrock homes slills are just that bad..but to justify their job they have to shoot in the dark and witch Hunt....They stalled the project on so many fronts, then years later gave the go ahead to get a technical detail..by then software and technical details had advanced...and as software gets outdated out of market...the new technical detail would not match the old ' whatever segments' were made....so had to procure old software at a bigger price than its original one or the need to redo the whole segment was envisaged....then another sherlock stalled it on the witch hunt that the procurements are expensive than originally quoted a decade ago...and stalled it there...and so on and on...the dig made to run in circles to catch its tail...production nill, paper work full and waste of tax payers money on two fronts including paying for idiots and national security being outdated and thinned down

5) Its the right time for veterans who are showcassed on tv , to highlight the indifference of MoD,that makes sinking of 1 submarine , create a very big blow to national security.

6) INDIA IS THE ONLY COUNTRY TO SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES OF SANCTIONS PLACED IRONICALLY BY HERSELF( THROUGH IDIOCITY of Its own MoD, RM, FM, SUpreme comander's Failure)
If in case sabotage is to be probed it should be probed on hoe come a Country put sanctions on herself

If Indian navy does not have expertise in salvage and rescue operations they should have taken help from other countries. Time is precious in these type of accidents/ sabotage. May be sailor's lives could have been saved.

@Anonymous who says IN or India may not have resources for diving and rescue operations, let me add here that Indian divers (many being ex navy) work all over the world...This comes from my experience in the diving Industry of nearly 2 decades. Such comments only confuse the grieving minds and creates chaos

TERRORIST ATTACK cannot and should NOT be ruled out even if it shows the Navy in poor light .

The diesel mafia is very much active in that area of Mumbai .

Hafeez Saeed had threatened to attack India on Independence day .

This attack happens just before 15th August .

Are all these mere coincidences ?

Without having any evidence yet I believe this was a terror attack/sabotage by Pakistan.

And I am dead sure that if this is the case - our spineless UPA/Congress Govt. will cover up the sabotage and say it was an accident. And continue to talk to pakistan.

And Pakistan will do this again..and again..and again.

What a meek govt. we have.

It's an old sub that we lost. But along with it we lost 18 irreplaceable sons of India. R.I.P.

If this is the training accquired by the defence personnel in peacetime. Then it speaks volumes how they can handle a situation during war time.

India salutes the 18 men who gave thier lives for our country.

How convenient to blame Pak/ISI/Dawood/Weak Congress Govt. This way there is no need for introspection. Always blame others for our woes!
