    Just read the report on INS Talwar's Co being relived and can confirm the old earlier Talwar Type 12 frigate was a lucky Chief and produced many Admirals and a CNS Adm Mahdvendra Singh. Ships do have luck in their strain.

    Interesting to learn the Navy has asked media and you Shiv to help them out. You must.

    Instead of dismissing experienced senior officers the navy must double check its safety procedures..one or two such events could have been due to negligence but repititive occurence of such accidents show a serious flaw in the inherent safety procedures of the navy…i feel its high time for a scrutiny

    The Navy seems to be encountering multiple safety issues in the last few years. A comprehensive review of Operating Procedures and it's implementation at the ground level is required.

    Transitioning from a brown to blue water navy seems to be showing these gaps where sailors and leadership is playing catch-up.

    Shiv,

    My gut tells me that NS Sindhurakshak sank because of sabotage…initiated by Pak…

    Similarly the spate of naval mishaps incidents in the last few months may also have a paki hand. We should not rule it out.

    In your interactions with the navy brass pls. ask these tough questions…public has the right to know if pak did our kilo in. That would be an act of war…

    Yeah right – this ship is jinxed ! Did you know that writing about jinxed ships has jinxed the careers of many defence journos too.
    Use you brain and raise the right questions that need to be asked rather than trying to pin the reason for the unfortunate incidents to superstitious bull crap !

    Shiv, your dubious fellow blogger Prasun 'Chor' Sengupta has blogged against you, saying you have oversimplified. He calls INdian journos 'desi' as if that's some sort of abuse. Anyway, just wanted to share the joke of how that idiot consistently derides the work of others while using it as a vehicle to pimp hardware for those who fund his highly iffy journalistic practices. all strength to you, shiv. just wanted to inform you, in case you are too busy to see.

    @Shiv,
    i was just curious as to whether Capt. Parmar was actually found guilty during the GCM? can you look into that once.
    @ To those who think its because of lack of trained professionals,
    such incidents happen in almost every navy around the world. navigational error cannot be ruled out but you must also remember that the area around Mumbai harbour is very crowded.
