A TRUE SEA STORY- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL




EXPERIENCES OF A MERCHANT SHIP CAPTAIN --

this is a true story--

when ole capt vadakayil was mistaken for a anaconda snake charmer --

we went to rostock with iron ore loaded by conveyor belt from paradip --

6 hours before arrival , i got all 5 holds opened out --

chief officer came to me and said -- sir, someone is playing mischief-- a black hawser is lying on top of the ore in hold no 3 --

i interjected-- but, all our dang hawsers are yellow!

i went on deck-- threw a steel nut on the coiled mass --

--- a HUGE python slithered --

immediately 60 gaping crew assembled to see this terrific sight-- i drove the duty engineer away , for, in the excitement the engine room was abandoned --

3 young cadets nearly fainted , as just 2 days after paradip they went insideall holds to check for daylight ( battening down and checking packing integrity )- -

we garrotted the python using extreme seamanship -- and got it on maindeck -- we smashed the poor guys head to pulp--

someone suggested-- let us throw the dang thing overboard--

someone else said -- no , violation of marpol regulation annex 5 , section so and so , blah blah--

so it finally transpired,  that it was taken to engine room in a huge sack by 4 huffin' and puffin' sailors -- taking turns--

we decided to incinerate it hush hush , while discharging ore -- to avoid a possible quarantine problem

as soon as we berthed 3 bristling and restless german shepherd dogs came along with communist customs--

--they went crazy -- sniff sniff-- strange new smell --

customs got panicky -- dogs ran down to engine room-- started sniffing , pawing and barking at the huge sack -- placed next to incinerator--

customs cried -- AAAHAA -- at least 60 kilos of 'm drugs! --

wow! we have struck pay dirt --

they opened up the sack in triumph--

the snake stirred despite a missing head -- bizzare!

all screamed and ran helter skelter,  like the whirling dervishes --

 one white faced sweinstieger type customs guy was caught in dead end funnel deck ladder --

dogs broke their leashes and ran pell mell , down gangway on to jetty --

--uncontrollable --

5 red faced german mannschaft customs officers come running in to mE cabin--

 " CAPTAIN , PLEEASE FOR OUR OWN SAFETY -- HOW MANY MORE SNAKES YOU HAVE ON SHIP?"

i said laconically -- " as far as i know, only one-- and it is dead! " --

they were still darting glances fearfully into my bedroom -- till they left-- probably for that turban and  flute, which they get to see on tv

later pretty rostock zoo ladies came runnin' to see the dead reptile -- and cried -- " you should have donated this lovely creature to the zoo!" --

we incinerated the poor guy -- (or was it a gal? ) -- -- after cutting it into pieces, with a circular saw -- 6 consignments into the furnace =

-- despite eating nothing for a month inside the hold --- it was full of beef--

we did the incineration job for 2 days -- the whole engine room smelled of TANDOORI chicken!

well-- this was before the berlin wall came down -

now--

--where is mE beer--

  3. hi bz,

    the hindu must stop being SELF LOATHING. after that everything will fall into place.

    3 decades as ship captan- i made sure all were in AWE of India ( not capt ajit vadakayil ).

    i used to attend GORA job interviews just for the heck of it -- just for kicks

    i dared them to fail me, because the interview would be a panel - not a single man .

    I had ZERO inclination of joining them. for i was the blue eyed boy of my company SCI, i worked in .

    Just one WEE example?

    in 1983 i appeared for a MOBIL interview for ship captain .

    why did i choose mobil -- because they had sacked ALL the Indian captains they had chosen till then , for incompetence .

    and i knew they would call me first -- for i had maximum of VLCC experience with COW / IG etc which nobody else had . VLCC is a ship which carries around 300,000 tonnes of crude.

    NOW I WILL REVEAL AN INCIDENT WHICH WOULD HAVE GONE INTO MY BOOK "GAMES CAPTAIN PLAYED ".

    2 days before the interview with a certain englishman capt sindon ( a hard nut ) at mumbai yacht club, i was sleeping in seaman's club when my batchmate woke me up and told me " ajit , capt aga senior wants to talk to you. he is waiting for you ".

    capt aga senior ( a parsee ) was considered by all the grand old man of indian shipping.

    so i walked down to his chambers just 50 metres away .
    Aga told me " son, all the Indian captains whom i have chosen have let me down -- all of them have been sacked , or will be sacked soon for incompetence, could you reverse this trend , or i stand to lose this agency . they will soon stop recruiting Indians "

    i re-assured him " Sir, Capt Sindon will see me in his worst nightmares !"

    i wore a suit for the interview .

    i was the first to be called in, as i predicted .

    there were 5 men in the panel ,which included capt aga with the GORA Capt Sindon , calling the shots.

    no good mornings from me -- so the red colour sprung on sindon's ears .

    a brown indian must grovel, right ?

    he was rude -

    he asked me some trick questions whose answers i gave even before he could finish the questions - now his nose too became red .

    some of his questions - i answered with counter questions ( it requires brains to do that ) and now his whole face was red ..

    then he reminded me brusquely -- that he is supposed to ask the questions in that room.

    he stuck to pure tanker work -- in this area i was the principal of the school where Englishman capt sindon would not even get admission in LKG.

    he asked me about a vent riser fire –

    i told him a revolutionary concept of cutting off the flame with a flame quencher wire mesh ( available in a store ) -- i used to play in the school lab on the bunsen burner .

    he said -- you cant do it.

    i said-- i can, your opinion is your opinion .

    infuriated , capt sindon looked on either side and saw the interview panelists ( all wise experienced Indians all over 65 age ) were smirking with capt aga's gargantuan belly jumping like jelly.

    he now turned technical.

    he literally threw the tank profile of a product tanker -- this was supposed to be the failing question -- see i am gonna screw you-- you brown bastard .

    i saw from the corner of my eye that it was the tank profile of a russian product tanker on whose sister ship i had made 37 voyages as a chief officer -- carrying 4 grades of petrol, kerosene, naphtha ,and high speed diesel for IOC.

    if there was an expert on the planet on that sheet of paper it was ME alone .

    i asked him-- name the grades -- he did.

    1. CONTINUED FROM 1-

      i filled the sheet from forward part of the ship towards the aft - using only my PEREPHERAL VISION -- all the time eye balling the red faced gora gaand.
      .
      i must admit - it is IMPOSIBLE to do that-- unless this tank profile was in your subconscious-- and i had not even looked at the sheet.

      i filled up the cargo grades and threw the sheet back at him , exactly the way he threw it at me . -- not an iota more - not an iota less.

      gora gaand was stunned -- he nearly fell of the chair .

      he asked me what my considerations were - - and i told him - about contamination, the port rotation , max pumping rate -BLAH BLAH .
      ALL THOSE WHO ARE CURIOUS AS TO WHAT THIS TAKES , WHEN MORE THAN 4 GRADES ARE INVOLVED ON A CHEMICAL TANKER –CHECK OUT THE POST BELOW -
      http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2013/02/stowage-of-multiple-parcels-on-chemical.html

      thinking i was lucky he gave me another blank tank profile sheet and gave me a different port rotation with different cargo rotation.

      Again, i filled up the blanks using my peripheral vision , all the time eye balling our red faced gora gaand -- this time in reverse from aft of the ship to forward part .

      this is impossible even for an extremely intelligent person - but I had a secret of 37 voyages —why should I tell him that ?

      it takes a great deal of perception even to fill up grade wise .

      by now the indian panelists were openly smirking PRR BRRR TTRRRRR and making merry-they had sort of thrown caution to the winds .

      FU#K YOU CHOOT CAPT SINDON , IS WHAT WENT ON IN THEIR HEARTS .

      by now 45 minutes had passed -it was like a exam--and i had come out with flying colours.

      he asked the indian interview panel captains--would you like to ask Capt Ajit something ?

      they aid NOPE -- you have asked him enough !!

      he stuck his hand forwards and cried " WELCOME TO MOBIL! "

      i ignored his outstretched hand and said -- so far you have asked me all the questions , now it is my turn –

      what are my terms and conditions ?

      gora gaand now nearly got a stroke-- he hissed at the Indians "have you not told him about this already- what the hell is happening , BLAH BLAH "

      i interjected " they told me about your mobil logo boiler suit and your safety shoes --that is not what i look for -- what are my terms for wife carriage , i plan to get married soon ?"

      now he nearly frothed from his mouth , he went back to interview mode .

      he hissed - dont you think wives are a disturbing influence on the ship.

      i drawled -- not indian wives!

      all indians started smirking again--PRR TTEE BRRR TSSS!

      then he asked - if your second mate's wife has an affair with the mate , what action ?

      i lisped- as far as i know my second mate and mate will be indian -- so i will NOT have this problem- that is the answer .

      he started off- i cut him out—
      my doorway is small and it cannot let in an elephant, why take questions of an elephant in my room .

      then he says --when do you plan to join?

      i said - after 2 months , after marrying and a nice honeymoon.

      he angrily says --in this form you filled and signed --there is no indication of a 2 month delay.

      i said-- that sentiment was at that time --check out the date i filled it up.

      Since that date , i have changed mE mind - I am a flexible guy

      then he says - your previous employers have been very kind to you-- they have given you a huge super tanker as your first command - why kick them in the teeth ?

      i said- that is a secret which i dont want to tell you !

      sindon paaji tells me -- you have accumulated long leave -- i suggest you dont resign from SCI, do a contract with us and then resign .

      A VEILED THREAT - TEEEE HEEEEEEEE !

    I CANNOT SAY-- THIS IS NOT MY JOB--

    I HAVE NEVER EVER FAILED TO RESPOND TO ANY SUCH SITUATION--

    JACK OF ALL TRADES-- PEOPLE WHO SAILED WITH ME WILL CLAIM-- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL WAS A MASTER OF ALL TRADES.

    LEAVE ALONE NUCLEAR SCIENCE AND MISSILES -- I DID EVERYTHING AS PART OF MY JOB--

    I REMEMBER ONE I MADE A GANTRY CRANE JOYSTICK HYDRAULIC BLOCK BY MELTING A FEW METALS AND DRILLING HOLES -- HANDS BELONG TO MY OFFICERS AND CREW ---BRAIN IS MINE --

    I SPIT ON THIS EXTREMELY VAIN AND LOUD WOMAN ( SOUNDS LIKE DRAGGING IRON ON CONCRETE ) , WHO PASSES OFF HER POLICING EXPERIENCE AS ADMINISTRATIVE EXPERIENCE.

    judge, doctor, policeman, accountant, pest control, cook

    IN ANOTHER ONE HOUR IF MY BOILERS DO NOT COME BACK ON LINE , MY HIGH MELTING CARGO INSIDE THE SHIPS TANKS WILL FREEZE AND SHIP WILL TILT OVER AND SINK.

    hi vvp,

    suryanamaskar has to be done as soon as the sun rises-- .

    remaining as per your convenience.

    do NOT do pranayama , shirsanana , meditation, with full stomach.

    regarding earthing-

    i saw a white man ( in a european country) measuring aviation turbine fuel in my tanks wearing rubber boots, rubber gloves and a metal tape.

    i told by russian chief officer to warn him -- it is NOT permitted as static sparks can cause an explosion .

    he did NOT.

    so i went down on deck and KICKED HIS ASS with my pointy shoes. i had it recorded on video.

    i told that man -- a surveyor of a measuring house - you will be given a copy on a CD -- take that and complain against me for assault.

    MY LAST PROBLEM WITH SUCH A THING WAS WITH ADANI ( NARENDRA MODIs DARLING ).

    hi s,

    time to have a OBJECTIVE and DISPASSIONATE look at osho.

    this man was indeed intelligent. he does NOT need valium / nitrous oxide which instead of helping will degrade his consciousness.

    cannabis can increase your consciousness.

    PEA BRAINED HILLY BILLY YANK AND JOHN BULL CANNOT GUAGE OSHO.

    Osho revelled in making a CHOOT of of his white skinned devotees.

    he would tell them black is white in the morning and in the evening he would tell them white is black.

    the MANDH BUDDHI white skinned man is at the lowest gross plane of wisdom.

    the men of wisdom knows what must EVAPORATE must CONDENSE .

    this is the dance of shiva/ vishnu/ brahma

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2013/05/dvaita-vedanta-of-sanatana-dharma-or.html

    the white man followed osho because he has RAW animal magnetism.

    i give leadership lesson to my chief offiicers preparing them for ship's command.

    when any officer leaves my ship for marriage i also tell him HOW TO FUCK HIS WIFE - so that she does NOT become a chutney mary -- making her pickle john husband make bed tea for her and wash her bloodied undies.

    HOW TO FUCK A WOMAN IS BELOW-

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/09/muringakai-quantum-medicine-and.html

    when a woman is fucked well she does NOT care to write about her PHOREN jaunts in her blogs to impress her BLOG DOSTS .

    HEY BLOG DOSTS - I HAVE BEEN TRAVELLING TO ZURICH, PARIS - NOW I AM BACK TO COMPLETE MY PORN BOOK STARTING WITH S !

    getting back-

    one chief officers disagreed with my ANIMAL MAGNETISM leader virtue thing.

    so i told him to tell me one DRY BORING topic over which i would speak to my full officers/ crew next day for 4 hours continuously--while STANDING ON FEET erect -in a line .

    if one crew member even moved - i would give him an agreed amount of beer/cigarettes .

    he chose RISK ASSESSMENT which is more boring than boring-totally technical.

    what i spoke is now a blog post ( condensed form ).

    first the speaker has to exude magnetism ( like OSHO ) -secondly if he can , he must hold the interest.

    speakers like K Krishnamurty could NOT hold his audience's interest for more than 5 minutes -- as HILLY BILLY YANKS were NOT perceptive enough to understand the brillaince of his words. but OSHO spoke in small sentences like automatic rifle bursts.

    THIS PLANET KNEW ONLY "STATIC" RISK ASSESSMENT .

    IT WAS A MAN NAMED VADAKAYIL WHO INTRODUCED "DYNAMIC " RISK ASSESSMENT.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/04/dynamic-risk-assessment-on-chemical.html

    I STRETCHED THE POST ABOVE IN A LECTURE OF FOUR HOURS - NOT ONE SAILOR MOVED OR LEANED BACK ON THE WALL 12 INCHES BEHIND HIM.

    I HAVE DONE THIS FOUR HOURS SPEECH THING AT LEAST 8 TIMES - TO PROVE TO MY CHIEF OFFICER -- ON DIFFERENT SHIPS- WITH DIFFERENT NATIONALITIES.

    DYNAMIC risk assessment was always done in my mann mandir - before ant critical task. People would ask me why I am doing something totally opposite . If he could understand the flammability composition diagram I MAY tell him--otherwise it was NOT worth it.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/07/flammability-composition-diagram.html

    above few sentences ARE THE MOST VALUABLE AMONG MY 51587 COMMENTS TILL TODAY-- so understand this -nobody on this planet can explain better ( this is NOT a boast so read the line again ) .

    ug krishnamurthy ( a wannabe J ) was an ordinary man. J krishna murthy was on a higher plane.

    Jiddu left a legacy, but nothing of this sort for UG, who lacked the self conviction and self confidence.
    .
    UG was volatile and that too on a shaky foundation, and hyper-fragile Parveen Babi who accepted his a her guru, was catalyzed to self destruction. UG died bitter and alone- he could NOT rein in his inner devils.

    If I had not come across your blogs before going to states I am sure this place would've turned me into a some chutney mary type with fake accent n esp into an atheist (since it is sooo cool and smart to be one here)...I recently met all my friends in states who came a yr or two before me to study and most of them have become CM and PJ's who do not have much pride in their culture and India. I believe I came across your blogs as God did not want me to go down that way...

    hi s,

    when i was in school i would get MAHA impressed with the white man.

    names like mary, john, jack etc made me say WOW !

    today after seeing the whole planet for 4 decades--

    i smirk--

    i have pitted myself against all of them.

    today, i know what they are worth.

    digression:

    on a huge tanker owned by yanks, we had this problem of the anchor slipping on the windlass gypsy and running away free into the sea .

    NO amount of technical explanation could make my NOT SO BRIGHT white skinned yank bosses understand .

    totally at a loss - if named three links of the chain DICK , MARY AND PRICK and gave a new explanation brimming with PERVERTED sexual innuendo.

    they understood this very well-- how mary pressed her front against dick-- and how prick suddenly slipped out of mary making her run - BLAH BLAH.

    my fans in the US office told me that everybody read the message and had a huge laugh.

    especially when they compared it with my previous message in dour technical language using links A B and C for identity.

    but PRICK shoving into MARYs backside -- all understood .

    i was NOT targeted , as my LUCID explanation bore HAJAAAR fruit.

    TEE HEEE !

  11. After I left a shipping company, all my shore bosses got drunk in a party –
    BACHCH GAYA SAALA PARTY.

    All of them took turns to run down Capt Ajit Vadakayil .

    Later on when my biggest detractor got totally drunk, he says ( told to me by one fan junior level boss )-

    ONE THING WE GOT TO ADMIT, THOUGH — IF VEERAPPAN AND GANG SUDDDENLY ATTACKED US , WE ALL WOULD BE HIDING UNDER OUR DESKS – ONLY VADAKAYIL WOULD FIGHT BACK , AND FUCK VEERAPPAN.

  12. STOP PRESS:

    We are sick and tired of hearing Milkha Singh—how he looked back and became 4th in the 400 metres final at the 1960 Rome Olympics.

    I can understand if he lost the gold medal—here is someone giving endless bullshit about losing the bronze medal because he looked back ( sic).

    The race timing was HANDTIMED and not accurate.

    This was the reason why all four broke the existing Olympic record. This is a accepted fact today.

    As soon as Milkha Singh knew the timing was erroneous and in hi favour, he gave the bait—that anybody who beats his record in India will be given one lakh rupees.

    Milka Singh’s suspect record has been broken by KM Binu— (brother of KM Beenamol the gold medal winner in women's 800m and the 4x400m women's relay in the 2002 Asian Games held at Busan ).

    KM Binu told the media later that he never got one lakh from Milkha Singh.

    MILKHA SINGH-- WHEN YOU LOSE YOU LOSE—PERIOD .

    PT Usha also came 4th in Olympics 400 metres hurdles , she never spun any tall yarns.

    After 32 years PT Usha’s 400 metres hurdles record still stands as an Indian record.

    The standard of athletics in Kerala is better than the rest of India—as is seen from the Inter state athletics record.

    Last year Kerala finished national INTERSTATE champions- 7th time in a row.
    While in school I was getting ready for the 200 metres race -- INTER SCHOOL ATHELETIC CHAMPIONHIPS KOZHIKODE DISTRICT –with hundreds of schools .

    I was confident of grabbing the silver medal .

    Suddenly the my classmate KP Ashok ( senior category ) who was the “ fastest school boy in kerala” (among thousands of schools ) walked up to me with his starting wooden block and spiked shoes.

    Now, I was a barefoot runner, never used the starting blocks or spiked shoes in my life.

    At the spur of the moment , with girls watching, with a couple of minutes left for the start if the FINALS , I accepted it.

    Needless to say, I was the last to start and I could NOT run, with the spiked shoes too large for my feet.

    Still I got the bronze.

    My elder ( 2nd ) sister got the gold in 100 metres .

    And after the race , I had to listen to “firing” from the seniors in the team , for being so naïve.

    I never thought of MOANING endlessly about this incident .

    In fact I remember this incident after nearly 45 years.

    SO MILKA PAAJI , ENOUGH OF MOANING.

    ACCEPT WITH GRACE THAT YOU CAME FOURTH !

    PEOPLE WHO WATCHED THE ROME OLYMPIC 400 METRES RACE SWEAR, THAT MILKA SINGH NEVER LOOKED BACK—

    ALL A COCK AND BULL STORY !!

    Captain,

    All senior management, across professions - be it White collar, blue collar, military, etc. love to use the "I will fire you" threat in order to make their employees tow their line.

    Then how did you manage to persevere in spite of changing so many rules/practices and refusing to tow the line of the bosses ?

    Especially in the initial days of your career when brand Vadakayil was not as well known as it is today ?

    THE TOP HONCHO WAS ALWAYS MY FAN-- RIGHT FROM THE DAY I BECAME CAPTAIN, TO THE DAY I RETIRED . . HIS HAND WAS ON MY HEAD . .

    THE MIDDLE MANAGEMENT HATED ME LIKE THE PLAGUE ..THEY WOULD CALL ME "RASPUTIN" , "BIRBAL" etc BEHIND MY BACK AND DERIVE FAALTHU SOLACE

    THE BOTTOM MANAGEMENT JUST LOVED ME . . . . THEY GAVE ME FEEDBACK . .AND THE MIDDLE MANAGEMENT NEW IT .

    NONE OF MY BOSSES DARED TO GIVE ME A BAD SERVICE REPORT

    BECAUSE IN EVERY EVALUATION SECTION - I WOULD MAX THE MARKS .

    INSUBORDINATION USUALLY MEANS INSTANT DISMISSAL, ANYWHERE --

    BUT IF I WERE INSUBORDINATE ( ALMOST ALL THE TIME ) --ALL KNEW DEEP WITHIN THEIR HEARTS, THAT CAPTAIN IS INSUBORDINATE FOR A DAMN GOOD REASON..

    I WOULD TAUNT THE MIDDLE MANAGEMENT BY TELLING THEM OFTEN-- THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN BEAT ME IS , -- IF THERE IS A CONTEST IN UGLINESS ..

    I WOULD SEND THIS BY FAX TO THE TOP HONCHOs ROOM-- HE WOULD TAKE TWO DOZEN COPIES AND DISTRIBUTE IT PERSONALLY " CAPTAIN SEND THIS TO YOU"

    I OFTEN CHANGED COMPANIES ( LIKE CHANGING RESTAURANTS ) --THE DAY I LEFT THE COMAPNY, MY BOSSES WOULD GET DRUNK IN MASSIVE CELEBRATION

    THEY DARED NOT SCREW ME-- FOR THEY HAVE TO WRITE TECHNICAL CIRCULARS--

    THEY KNEW THAT IF CAPT VADAKAYIL WANTS HE CAN DESTROY THEM OVER EVERY LINE THEY WROTE IN TECHNICAL CIRCULARS ( LIKE SADGURUS GREAT CONTINENTAL DRIFT ) -

    THEIR BALLS WERE IN MY VICE FOR ME TO SQUEEZE AT WILL--OUCH OUCH

    - BILKUL NANGA KAR SAKTA HOON

    KNOWLEDGE IS POWER . . CHARTERERS WERE MY FANS. .MY SHIP ALWAYS DELIVERED .. MY SHIT DID NOT SMELL FOR THEM.

    IT IS GREAT TO BE A SLAVE MORE POWERFUL THAT CAESAR

    sometimes if an engineer boss tried a COLD WAR -- I JUST SIT LOW-- HE KNOWS WHAT IS GONNA COME NEXT--

    when there is a technical breakdown on ship and chief engineer fails to solve it-- my engineer bosses have to lick back their spit from the ground--YAAR AJIT , JUST GO TO ENGINE ROOM AND SOLVE THE PROBLEM--PLEAAJJE .

    the alternative was to get sacked --for there is not much they can do if the ship is stalled in the middle of the ocean

    TEE HEEEE

    I ALWAYS TELL MY OFFICERS --I AM A POOR ROLE MODEL -- BECAUSE THEY WOULD BE SLICED BY A SHARP BLADE AND BLED , IF THEY EMULATE ME .

    it is difficult for a tongue --to see, hear , smell etc unless the tongue is called VADAKAYIL

  15. YESTERDAY DURING NEWSHOUR I WAS WATCHING SOME CREATURES NAY VERMIN , UNITED BY THEIR COMMON HATRED FOR PM MOD, PUTTING THE WATAN LAST AND THEIR FOUL PERSONAL AGENDA FIRST......


    AND ONE GUY NAMED MAYANK GANDHI WAS IMPLORING, PLEASE KEEP NATION FIRST
    I WAS REMINED OF MYSELF AT SEA

    WHEN IT CAME TO DEFENDING THE HONOUR OF BHARATMATA , I KICKED MY JOB SEVERAL TIMES
    WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME ?

    WE WERE IN SOUTH KOREA UNLOADING CHEMICALS AT ANCHOR INTO BARGES

    I NOTIED THAT THE SECOND MATE , A MANGALOREAN CHRISTIAN HAD NOT FILLED UP THE PORT PROGRESS LOG . .

    I ASKED THE CHIEF MATE— AND HE TOLD ME THAT THE SECOND MATE WAS IN DEEP DEPRESSION.

    SO I CALLED UP THE SECOND MATE TO MY CABIN—HE WAS ASLEEP—I INSISTED

    THIS BOY WAS A VERY HUMBLE GUY , AND HIS HUMILITY WAS WAY OVER FOR AN OFFICER WHO SERVED UNDER MY COMMAND. HE WAS MOST SINCERE CONSCIENTIOUS IN HIS JOB . .

    AS SOON AS HE ENTERED I CLOSED THE DOOR AND ASKED HIM ” SOMETHING IS EATING YOU UP—I WANT TO KNOW WHY”

    He said –“ the Korean Supercargo ( a captain ) came on board after midnight, he came to the CCR and I gave him the owners cabin key and told him where to find his cabin. He handed over his brief case to me and ordered me to carry it to his cabin. So I asked him, if I was a white skinned British or German officer, if h would do the same thing “

    “ On the way to the owner’s cabin, this Korean captain ( come as Cargo Superintendent appointed by US charterers ) kept GIGGLING LOUDLY . After that my mind has just chatters , I cant concentrate –as the insult was too deep , it has scarred my mind. I feel ashamed to be an Indian with brown skin“

    I replied “ This Korean Captain is now sleeping , as he has given wake up call instruction to the CCR . Go to the owners cabin, wake him up and say Captain wants to see you on the bridge in 300 SECONDS “

    My second mate held my wrist , HARD, like how my wife would do when I was about to lose my restraint –Sir let it be –I know what you will do now”

    I replied to this well wisher ’ Follow my orders”

    Within 300 seconds the Korean was on the navigating bridge with an angry indignant look.

    He knew Captain was aware of the brief case incident –as he asked the second mate on the way up, if he told the Captain.

    I ordered him” There are six barges along side my ship. I will allow only two. I order you to give orders within 600 SECONDS . If you don’t do that I will shut cargo operations and call up your bosses in USA to remove you from my ship”

    THE YANK TOP BOSS WAS MY FAN. MY SHIT WOULD NOT SMELL FOR HIM.

    The Korean Captain had pull with the Jap owners and made them call my bosses to tell them that I insulted the Supercargo.

    My bosses wanted an explanation.

    I said “ I take decisions on my ship-PERIOD “

    INDIA IS FULL OF TRAITORS WHO DON’T LOVE THE WATAN. THIS IS WHY BHARATMATA WAS IN CHAINS FOR 800 YEARS.

    JUST MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF A FEW TRAITORS LIKE SLIMY MANI , AND SEE HOW ALL FALL IN LINE.
