MENTORING AT SEA-- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL



on board my ship i do HUMOR MANAGEMENT. it is the most powerful and effective form of management. AND LAUGHING IS NO ENEMY TO LEARNING .

but i do retain the option to dart to IRON FISTED NO NONSENSE MANAGEMENT when safety/ company image is at stake.

when a news reader on prime time tv says something controversial , questions will be asked in the lok sabha the next day. however if he talks to a muppet he can say the same thing and more and instead of getting crucified he gets applauded.

by the way when i was on derailed sichem pearl i got one year of work done in 4 months. it could have been done only by humor management with some sailor specific sex talk sprinkled in for good measure--- work gets converted to play. half the time the crew is confused whether they are working hard or playing hard.


here is my piece on ON BOARD MENTORING.

what is mentoring?

it is an inexpensive way to build up a high performance team on board , like a formula one ferrari team. HIGH PERFORMANCE TEAMS DO NOT HAPPEN--THEY ARE BUILT.

difference between OBT and OBM:

the mentor retains a STRANGE CONTROL over the trainee even after the session is over. for the trainer treats the mind as a vessel to be filled up, while the mentor treats it as a STACK TO BE IGNITED. sceptics pl consider-- capt vadakayil had mentored capt ajay prasad. does any body feel that he would not have joined selandia/ fairchem colt as per my wishes because he would get two thousand dollars more elsewhere. or capt sanjay mehta whom i had mentored will not jump from copenhagen pool to singapore pool when ever i want him to? in short the obt informs,--the obm INFLUENCES and MOTIVATES.

need for interaction:--
any idiot can evaluate knowledge by a written test. evaluating attitudes need personal interaction. ATTITUDES are beliefs and values. they are more sophisticated than skills and not easily influenced by a mere trainer.

example of a mentor:
the full bird colonel of rambo who keeps mouthing glib patronising talk like " what are friends for?". 

it is a skill in itself. 'glib patronising talk' usually created resentment if the student is intelligent. the mentors personality is such that he gets the team excited about waht they NEED to learn rather than what they WANT to learn. he does not fight fire with fire.

qualifications of a mentor:
he must be SEASONED, COMPASSIONATE , FAIR and have character --only then he can be a role model. HIS STYLE MUST NOT BE DOMINATING (that is why the master is a misfit , he can aleniate the trainee who feels threatened ) but facilitating. there is no need to catch a cat by the tail in order to know more about it---unless the cat is real bad (tee hee ! ) since feedback is the fuel for improved performance, the mentor must be honest only to the extent that his feedback cannot be destructive. negative feed back without splitting hairs ,must not be untimely and unbalanced. negative feedback cant be in public. the feedback game is like a game of billiards. let me not digress--

moving on--
the mentor MOULDS ATTITUDES and HONES COMMITMENT. an ordinary teacher can address only knowledge and skills. he cannot CHANGE BEHAVIOR like a mentor. greg chapell can be a good coach because he talks about mentoring. the team must delight in the self improvement process. unless it is meaningful fun doing all this , this process cannot work. he must get interested in the team and in the process the team gets interested in him. he will address crewmembers by their first names.

why on board? why not in the institute?
like the universal water the mentor must find the level of every member and float him up like how the panamax is floated up in the canal ( tee heee ! ). this is called PITCHING AT THE RIGHT LEVEL. the mentoring ENVIRONMENT is important. executive ship management has build a stainless steel tank with a framo pump inside in their training institute spending a fortune.

environment--
if the environment is not ok , the dialogue between minds cannot happen. remember the mentor does not bid you to enter the glorious house of his own wisdom--rather HE LEADS YOU TO THE THRESHOLD OF YOUR OWN MIND.(oops, have i been too profound about mind exploration?) the mentor is a PROBER NOT AN INTERROGATOR.

why stacks?--
the mentor must not waste too much on time on spent forces. my chief engineer on sichem psv was a spent force. i stop short of calling him a loser. wet stacks can be dried and ignited.

food for the soul--
the obm must identify people who do not take pride in their work and encourage these misguided souls as long as they are not persistant story tellers who want company policy change to suit their needs.

bottomline--

while getting off the ship the obm must have the satisfaction of knowing that he has bridged the gap between what the team wants to learn and what they need to know. he must have with him a list of the crew's future training needs . he cannot get off with a conflict left to fester which he has not attempted to diffuse. I WOULD CALL A MENTOR SUCCESSFUL ONLY IF HE HAS ESTABLISED A CULTURE WHICH ENCOURAGES A CREW MEMBER TO STAY WITH THE COMPANY AND FLOURISH. he has done a damn good job if he has identified people who have a sense on belonging. for what is the use in sharing insight and experience with such driftwood.

MENTORING--- VIEWED INSIDE OUT

LAST TIME I GAVE A BIRDS EYE VIEW OF THE POND OF MENTORING.
THIS TIME I AM DIVING RIGHT IN.

--HERE I GO!!---YIPEEEEE!!!!

MID AIR LET ME DIGRESS—
PEOPLE WHO GOT MENTORED BY CAPT VADAKAYIL WILL CRY---“HE NEVER PRACTISED A DANG WORD OF ALL THIS”. I SHALL CONFIRM ---. YES THEY ARE RIGHT . I NEVER FOLLOWED A WORD OF ALL THIS FOR I DID “SPONTANEOUS HUMOR MENTORING”.

THERE IS NO CRASH COURSE TO THIS ART. IF YOU ARE NOT BORN WITH THIS ART YOU MUST BE A LIVING LEGEND LIKE MARADONA TO IGNORE WHAT FOLLOWS.

DIGRESSION CODE TWO—I WILL DELIBERATELY LEAVE MY PROSE DISJOINTED AND UNEDITED. THIS IS TO MAKE MY PIECE MORE POWERFUL.

SCEPTICS PL CONSIDER---WOULD ARUNDATHI ROY HAVE GOT THE BOOKER PRIZE FOR HER NOVEL ‘ GOD OF SMALL THINGS’ IF SHE HAD NOT STREWN THE STORY AROUND IN BITS AND PIECES FOR THE READER TO WEAVE-- AFTER READING IT AT LEAST TWICE?

Splaaaaashhhh!!

First let me swim around and locate TRUTHS etched on rock. ---

Humor is a state of mind which can appreciate the ludicrous or absurdly incongruous. It instills a feeling of camaraderie. Human beings are by nature playful creatures. Leaders who are open to humor become more human and approachable. Only humor can save people who are on the brink of burnout.

Frivolousness or behaving like Mr.Super Dick (or prick for the matter) is just not the humor I am referring to..

Productivity increases when commitment increases. Committed employees value their existing work relationship so highly that they may even pass over another job which pays 2000 usd more. Committed employees speak well about the company to the seafaring community. Only people who are happy in their work can be committed. A heightened atmosphere of general goodwill exists on such a ship..

When you trust people they trust you in return. When a high level of trust exists sailors show very little concern about getting their share from a relationship because they know for sure the other party will not take advantage of them. People in low trust relationships are preoccupied with seeing that they get their share of the relationship -- ( like high wages , new ships) and the other party gets no more than a fair share.

Trust is fragile and can be destroyed in one single stroke. Trust is not being gullible to believe bullshit or be treated like a mushroom ( always in the dark and fed with lot of crap).

First loyalty is to yourself—this is the way human beings are made.

Employees have a right to be treated with courtesy and respect. Rewards have little meaning if respect is missing. ( I learnt this in Zodiac-- the only thing I learnt there other than sabbath) They have a right to expect the management to care about their happiness and safety.

Sailors are proud to be part of an organization that show ethical consideration for themselves and for society and even the environment (many superintendents develop a nelsons eye when they see the merlin pipe used to pump ho sludge overboard) . They get inspired to bond and commit to such an organisation.

Almost all new employees want to stay in an organization and do a good job.

Quality is a culture which must be built in –not inspected in semi annually.

Time is required to build skills necessary to meet quality standards. OBM cuts down this time.

Trust goes out of the window when you ask for ideas and don’t follow up on them. All that is required is to comment on unfeasible ideas. Or the next time you ask for ideas they crew wont trust you enough to give you time of day.

Commitment to a common goal is the foundation of success. Commitment and loyalty come from being included rather than excluded in decision making and information sharing (sometimes the crew does not know where the ship is bound for—thus starting the galley news bureau with the captains steward as the news reader). Commitment to the company improves when employees are recogonised for their contributions.

Negative attitudes are contagious.

The strongest drive in human nature is the desire to be appreciated.(don’t take my word for granted and call an ugly girl, gorgeous, for she will haul you over burning embers for sexual harassment ). If it is overdone with insincerity it becomes patronizing.

Patronisers compliment people to serve themselves and does not care for the dignity of others.. Loud praises of few people is bound to cause others to feel left out and will cause resentment.

Praise seldom improves “performance” rather in some cases it impairs performance. It may lead some duffers to believe that they are better than what they are. So instead of praise try giving them feed back which encourages them.

Two of the most powerful motivators are survival and security. Criticism threatens motivation.

Company seminars must not be used to pit workers against management. When respectable top bosses are put in the witness box on the defensive—even after the issues are settled , deep scars are left behind. Defensive blocking burns energy needed for constructive action.

The quickest way to destroy trust is to jump all over somebody who is doing his best.

Trust and delegation go hand in hand. This does not imply abdication or dumping—for delegation is built on trust –not abandonment.( or even micromanaging—hovering over. I did that on Sichem Pearl for 2 months ).

Departing employees take a great deal of knowledge with them. Losing good employees has a domino effect.

Burned out employees make huge mistakes ---the intelligent ones just simply quit. An unhappy ship leads to burnout. Vetting inspectors rarely punish a ship where the crew morale is high and ships management radiates pride.

Ships are run by men not machines.

Creativity involves people talking together—even at coffee breaks.

Job satisfaction is a major factor for an employees decision to stay with or leave the company. High turnover makes it difficult to build a chemical pool.

Communicating well is is one of the lowest cost but highest yielding things that you can do to keep employee retention.

Where there is low commitment there exists a mentality of every man for himself.

Now let me define VISION. It is always seen when in ecstasy. It is a deep optimistic expression of what is desired.


What vision should a standard company like TESMA hold for the future.—
Let me talk about the company ORGANISATION CHART.

When I was at the Japanese shipyard at Usuki I got familiar with the pyramid structure. Fine—but the pyramid base consisted of morons who made stupid mistakes. Another familiar structure is in the company manual consisting of many boxes.

Ideally the chart for the future should look like the anatomy of the nervous system of a human body. Sense organ messages from brain (or management) must be sent to only that part of the body (or employees) best suited to handle the job ( or change ). Individual talent and synergy of teamwork is utilized.

THIS IS WHERE THE MENTORING ASPECT COMES IN. Mentoring helps build the network and skills for such a proactively responsive organization. Mentoring is here to stay and will be a way of life in the future.

TESMA Singapore can take the credit for being the pioneer and discoverer of the term OBM . Mentoring must not be limited to ships , but should be a culture ashore too. The company realizes that mentoring is not a luxury but a necessity.

Knowledge and skills of every employee is harnessed to get the cutting edge. OBM will first be kick started on chemical tankers where know how has been scarce and hard to acquire. It is common place for seasoned chemical men to hide and hoard knowledge. They give fishes but don’t teach how to fish. The only reason could be to be one up on the rest and wrest falthu respect.

Ever seen a derby race winner who as a colt was suppressed, disabled and crushed?

Junior ranks must be empowered to discover their potential and play the best game. The mentor must fill in the cracks of their vulnerabilities. The environment has to be punishment free and congenial. It must be such that a sailor can meet his needs while meeting the needs of the company.

Topnotch standards of performance need to be developed both personally and professionally.

Performance failure must be viewed as a gap between what is needed and what id produced. The OBM must describe and measure this gap. A mutual plan needs to be developed for closing the gap.

Encourage employees to challenge the status quo. The OBM must convey companies standards and procedures.

Mentoring is also cost effective training for training can be done when time permits. Remember that ship runs round the clock. Audio visual aids are not required for training will be on the spot and hands on.

At the end of a successful mentoring programme it will be in order for a certificate of recognition to be issued to the mentee.

The image of the company should be such that employees want to remain with and outsiders want to be hired to.

Involve employees into decisions and discussions about budgeting.

Lack of competence tears down the infrastructure.

SINCE OLD STYLE TRADITIONAL LOYALTY IS DEAD THE OBM HAS TO STRENGTHEN THE EMOTIONAL CONNECTION BETWEEN SHIPSTAFF AND COMPANY.

WHAT MY VISION OF MENTORING IS NOT—
When I was in a government public sector company as a junior officer I noticed that anybody who made it had a mentor. People in power cultivated protégés as pawns in a power struggle. They sponsored their protégées advancement without regard to merit. They taught their protégées tricks of the trade such as skills to sabotage their competitors rather than develop their own talents. Such a person cannot be called a mentor. 

A MENTOR CANNOT PLAY THE POWER GAME. The core value is not to have an alliance rather it is solely to develop the mentee. It is not a personal chemistry between 2 people or a training course. It is a deep trusting personal relationship where a two way flow of respect and kindness happens. OBM is a fresh set of eyes which see things differently.

A mentor must not inappropriately achieve a promotion for the mentee or advance the mentees cause with his friends.

SO THEN WHAT IS THE MENTOR WE ARE TALKING ABOUT---
The mentor is not expected to sponsor his protégée leading to favouristism , career climbing and internal politics. The playing field cannot be tilted by a true mentor in favour of the mentee. It is a one to one ,caring and helping relationship where the mentees professional growth is enhanced to prepare him for top notch performance and it rises above the mundane. If the mentee does not change for the better the mentoring exercise has not taken off.

In the classic HOMER’S ODYSSEY when Odysseus –king of Ithaca leaves to fight in the Trojan war he entrusts the care of his household to MENTOR (easy name eh?, it could have been Balasubramaniamsivaramakrishnan –tee hee!! In which case the title would have been OBB) who was the teacher of his son Telemachus.

In time the word mentor has become synonymous with trusted friend,advisor ,teacher and sage. Examples of mentors and mentee in history are that of Socrates and Plato, Freud and Jung. Fagin of Oliver Twist who took homeless children under his wing to pick pockets for his own financial gain is not a mentor.

A modern living legend who is a stern taskmaster can mould his protégée to be a winner. The crunch word is ‘care’. A mentor cares for the mentee. Mentor’s (of odyssey fame) job was not just to raise Telemachus, but to but to develop him for the responsibilities of a lifetime by touching every facet of his being. It goes beyond counseling or obligatory relationships.

Intuition , feelings , hunches –all come to play in this intense long term relationship. The mentor gives a chance to the mentee to vent his negative feelings and get therapeutic relief.

You will appreciate in a ordinary training programme getting things off your chest may cause you to be black balled or worse cause the trainer to go into a deep sulk.

So what is the difference between a incompetent overbearing constantly nagging captain and a true mentor. They are on opposite ends of the pole ( tee hee!!).

The mentor fills up performance gaps with information not nagging criticism. An OBM is a catalyst of change and creates synergy in the work force by proactively leading people to draw on their innate creative energy.

DO’S FOR A OBM:
Identify things that do not meet your company standards. See if things can be done in a better way.

Give insight to company culture, appropriate attitudes and special relevant insider knowledge that is not written anywhere.

Focus on career plans and open new vistas for the mentee

Go that extra mile in discovering needs and fulfilling only those needs.

Counseling that stretch the mentee must include personal experienced gleaned and distilled from past quality experience. All coaching must be consistent with organizational needs and values.

Discuss stress management techniques on chemical tankers.

Hone win win negotiating and trust building skills.

Strengthen communicating skills, team building skills and skills to bring people to consensus.

Identify personal negative habits and reduce them.

Build assertive skills ( not aggressive skills )and conflict resolution skills.

Show how to manage time productively by multitasking.

Build on positive thinking and optimism.

Create an atmosphere of trust.

Ensure the OBM programme is a loose structure and flexible to meet the mentees needs.

Focus on positive results of a transaction and encourage constructive imagination.

Allow mentee to unload their troubles to get emotional release.

Look out for creative ideas to improve the system.

Discuss values and priorities.

Create a focus for creative energy by setting short term goals.

Observe employees while on the job.

Establish time frames for corrective action.

Respond to complaints quickly. Your door must be always open .( this is not like holding a chair on top of your head when told to take a chair --Tee hee !!)

Focus on efforts and contributions rather than accomplishments.

Eliminate barriers which prevent employees from unleashing their talents.

DON’T’S FOR THE OBM:
Don’t argue. Usually people argue without listening. They will only listen to gather information to reinforce their own arguments.

Don’t expect instant change. Quick changes can be stressful and overwhelming. Remember you are there as an OBM to build a quality culture brick by brick.

Don’t lower the mentees self esteem by threatening him to adopt new ways.

There is no need to push a reluctant soul too hard.

Don’t take over a problem unless there is an imminent safety , pollution,
company image crisis. Rescuing a mentee from mundane matters is not likely to help him in the long run.

Don’t make any promises you cant keep. Don’t over promise and underdeliver.

Don’t encourage bickering or bitching.

Don’t show favouritism. It can tear apart the work force.

Don’t give negative feedback at the wrong time. Wrong time is not the time for a 2 way conversation.

Don’t hold sessions disrespecting peoples time.

Don’t win battles at the expense of losing the war.

Don’t allow a insulting berating culture on board.

Don’t compliment Dilton for his muscles and Big Moose for his brains (duh!).

Don’t produce your clone even if you are god’s gift to shipping and this planet..

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MENTOR AND MENTEE:
The mentee must feel comfortable with the mentor. Only then he will be willing to trust and open up the doors of his mind to receive solutions.

Like a psychiatrist’s professional code, negative things volunteered by the mentee must strictly remain with the mentor. This is why the mentor must have character.

Once a relationship is set up it can be carried on by email or telephone.

For such a trusting relationship the key words are –encourage, help, listen, fair, caring, friendly, tolerant.etc.

Share thoughts and act spontaneously.

Treat the mentee as an individual. Call yourself I --not WE as many superintendents do from their first day in office to rub in the fact that he is now the almighty company and dispenser of your destiny.

If you are a seasoned guy, make sure you reduce the awe factor by being friendly.

The mentee must feel that you derive pleasure by helping him succeed and you want only good things to happen to him.

If the mentor does not have an emotional attachment to his team all his techniques and smartness is of zilch use.

A mentor broadens the horizons of the mentee.

TIPS FOR ASPIRING OBMS:

Give right help at the right time.

Enable the mentee to solve his own problems.

You must be a volunteer (make sure you get paid too ) to this job—only then can you enjoy it. Before you volunteer ask yourself ” Am I a mature intelligent and qualified individual for this abstract job?”.

On an abstract mission things left unsaid usually speak more than what is said. Your commitment must be 100%. Your antenna must be tuned for reception. You must have a willingness to pause and listen. Do you have a freely giving nature or is your nature such that you give only when you get ‘fayada’ out of it. Can you stretch yourself to make a positive difference in the life of others?

Since this process is genuine , do not hesitate to terminate a mentoring relationship any time without assigning reasons. Remember you are a commitment building manager.

Spontaneous off the cuff interventions while on the spot provide memorable and lasting learning experience.

Feel for yourself if the work place gives nourishment to the soul and there is quality of life .

You must do constant self improvement. Spent forces and deadwood will not get a calling card with QM printed on it.

You must know the ropes of body language. Only then you can forecast that something is amiss.

Be aware that cultural differences complicate your task. Remember the coaching is OJT ( read that as on the job training )

When you get off the ship you must have done at least one thing to improve the happiness of crew on board. Even a simple thing like you were instrumental in getting a tt table or bad airconditioning repaired or procuring ergonomically friendly mattresses.

MENTAL SHACKLES

People resist change only if they see no gain from it. They see only inconvenience and more inconvenience. Mentoring cannot be forced. It is like magic—something like a religious conversion. ( not the type Dharmendra had to marry Hema Malini—tee hee!!)

ALSO ON THE UNSEEN AGENDA

Seek out individuals who are versatile, adaptable ( even to unfamiliar cultures ) and quick minded. Who are the guys who caught on right away?. Who are the marathon men? People who have energy ,vitality and enthusiasm pursue goals passionately. Energy included physical endurance and mental vigor.

Tap the talent of excelsior guys.

Maximize the strengths of the company and minimize the weaknesses.
Evaluation is an integral part of the job. Even evaluating if it was a happy ship, whether the employees are upbeat, whether there is any discrimination.

For evaluating the officers—key words are—action oriented, approachable, patient, time manager, courage, endurance, innovation, integrity, vitality, vision, honesty, accountability, decisive, effective, ethical, setting priorities, multitasking , self starting etc.

Who are the guys who walk on deck with a sense of purpose. A committed man rarely saunters around like a pregnant duck.

Celebrations and parties on board are an extension of fun.

TRICKS:

To probe you need to ask open ended questions which cannot be answered with a terse yes or no. This is important to facilitate a meaningful discussion. A closed question terminates a conversation as soon as it is started . ( is beer a conversation opener? )

Virtually everyone has an emotional reaction (positive or negative )to certain trigger words. ‘psychological deaf spots’ often trigger an emotion reaction. ( better stick to the beer to open up the door of the mind --eh?)

Find common ground.

View the whole crew as the orchestra band with the master as the conductor. Is the music pleasant to the ears. Whose guitar has to be restringed or violen tuned? Who are the pretenders who are screwing up the divine melody and giving music a bad name..

The capacity to detect emotions and feelings and to respond appropriately ia a critical art of mentoring. Since feelings motivate people to do or undo things overlooking them or insensitiveness can severely limit the mentors effectiveness.

Respect independence. Offer not push. Stick to helping not interfering.

Practice the art of inclusion to build a stronger team.

Understand that hierarchy is not simply a matter of rank or placing people on an organizational ladder. There are more profound and powerful hierarchies of competence, knowledge, seniority, talent, strength, intelligence, experience, influence , abstractions (ethics , loyalty , honor ,respect etc )etc.
Don’t attempt to wish away this truth and learn things the hard way..

Even unpopular decisions are more easily accepted it they make good sense.

Maintain your sense of humor. Fun activity should never be to embarrass .

Don’t give quick fix decisions. Rather thank the guy for bringing it to the company’s notice.

Support and enable rather than restrict and oversee.

Ask questions to understand –not to challenge. Since you are not in the chain of command you can ask not tell.

Different people have different styles. Be sensitive to such differences.

Communicate, be patient, be passionate about the success of every mentee.

Understand what is the meaning of win win solutions.

Listen for absolutes like never , every time etc.

MISFIT OBM:

The master is usually a misfit for OBM for when the going gets rough he is more interested in saving his own backside than the mentee’s. Remember mentoring is an informal relationship outside the chain of command. Rank blinds us to the more subtle relationship required for mentoring. Also anxiety about performance evaluation stunts.

CHEMICAL ENVIRONMENT:

Here the crew does more with less under stifling conditions.

Many struggle with a feeling of overload. If they are uncertain about their futures crew will keep a low profile and constantly look over their shoulders.

Burnouts are common place. Micromanaging is undesirable on chemical tankers unless the crew are all green horns and pretenders.

Seagull managing is also not desirable—fly in, bitch at all quack quack, crap of every body’s heads and fly out.

THERE IS A REAL NEED FOR OBM ON CHEMICAL TANKERS WHERE CREW ARE CREATING THEIR OWN CAREER PATHS AND USING JOB HOPPING AS A SURE ROUTE TO PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS..

BOTTOM LINE:
A teacher says “ see you later”
A OBM says “ keep in touch “

--- Don’t burn ze bridges.

  1. hi m,

    let me tell you something wanna be sport guru , Milka Singh who is still crying over why he turned back -- will NEVER EVER know.

    On the MICRO SCALE – MACRO quasars and black holes work in a unique way.

    A good sports coach is NOT a rustic CHOOT who gets Dronacharya awards without knowing the science behind athelete training. He would have NEVER heard of VO2 max and how to increase athletic performance.

    Usain Bolt is a 100 metres world champion because he does ANaerobic training-- the Adenosine Triphosphate-Creatine Phosphate (ATP-CP) system.

    While running 200 metres his body switches to the anaerobic glycolysis/lactic acid system.

    A marathon runner—after breasting the tape takes his victory lap in a totally different mode.

    Both the ANaerobic and aerobic systems are utilized during training and athletic performance.

    The athlete has to ensure that they train both power systems to maximize their athletic performance. The anaerobic system is utilized in all-out efforts of exercise lasting up to one minute.

    There are two anaerobic power systems available to the body:

    The Adenosine Triphosphate-Creatine Phosphate (ATP-CP) system, and
    The anaerobic glycolysis/lactic acid system.

    The ATP-CP system is used for efforts lasting less than 10 seconds; while the anaerobic glycolysis system powers efforts longer than 10 seconds, lasting up to a few minutes

    Anaerobic training is achieved through: speed and power training

    Anaerobic training increases athlete's lactate tolerance the size of the fast twitch muscle fibres.

    A higher anaerobic capacity enables an athlete to:

    Perform at a higher intensity over a specific distance—and, when required maintain a high intensity for a longer period of time



    The aerobic system, also known as aerobic glycolysis, powers continuous steady state exercise longer than three to four minutes.

    In the aerobic system energy (ATP) is produced through Pyruvic Acid and Lipid/Protein fragments entering the Kreb Cycle and the Electron Transport Cycle

    Aerobic glycolysis is dependent upon the athlete's aerobic capacity, which is their functional capacity for oxygen transport (i.e. distribution of oxygen rich blood to body tissues) and utilization (i.e. ability of muscle to use available oxygen to produce energy). Aerobic training increases aerobic capacity through adaptations to the athlete's oxygen transport and utilization system

    Aerobic training increases aerobic capacity through adaptations to the athlete's oxygen transport and utilization systems.

    Both the anaerobic and aerobic power systems are important to the athlete ad each needs to be trained to optimize their athletic performance.

    Respected Captain,

    What is special about Tamil Nadu?

    How come it is able to continuously produce word geniuses like Ramanujam, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, C.V. Raman, A.R. Rahman, Abdul Kalam, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, Viswanathan Anand, Illayaraja, etc?

    Even till recently the Chief Justice of India, the Finance Minister, the RBI governor are all Tamils?

    Is there any scientific reason behind this? Because no other region has produced such super genius people in such numbers.

    Regards

    hi ch,

    i am sure if i were a lawyer, i will NEVER EVER become CJI.

    i am sure if i were an economist, i will NEVER EVER become finance minister.

    you want me to continue ?

    when i was on my training ship in mumbai with 250 other cadets ( two years ) -- the biggest TELUs ( oily and slimy ) and SNEAKS ( snitches ) became SCC ( senior cadet captains ) , CC ( cadet captains ) , CL ( cadet leaders ) etc.

    i used to be in the CAPTAINS MONTHLY BREAKFAST PARTY ( cadet with maximum negative marks for OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES ) -- to be chewed up for breakfast every month .

    i got an EXTRA FIRST in every subject --except OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES.

    now what are OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES-

    being a son of a bit#h, being a sneak, being a hypocrite, being a as$ kisser , being a leader who will sell out his team, being a back biter, being an informer , being the best in playing to the gallery.

    so, so--

    at the passing out parade --most of the cadets who got all PRIXES were leaders -- they all got BOOOOOEEEEED !

    I remember i got only one prize--for being the best REPORTER IN ENGLISH -- the claps I got from the entire hall still resound in my ears -- along with another ROC ( royal officer cadet -who did NOT care to become a sold out leader ).

    and mind you -- i was in every single team which made my TOP ( starboard fore top ) the champion TOP.

    i was a champion sailor, rower, signaller, marks in subjects, soccer team in both years --

    but i lacked OLQ ( officer like qualities ) of being a FU#KIN' SLIME BALL.

    so in my passing our certificate , after two years of training -- i had an EXTRA FIRST in all subjects -- except OLQ where i was third grade

    so i guess they held a special meeting and GRACED ME TO FIRST CLASS --a young 18 year old boy -- .TEE HEEE !

    AT SEA, THE SAILORS DO NOT CARE FOR YOUR FOUR STRIPES- THEY ONLY CARE FOR WHO YOU ARE--

    AT SEA PEOPLE WHO KNOW ME , OR HAVE HEARD OF ME -- OR SAILED WITH ME, WILL VOUCH--

    CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL WAS A SLAVE MORE POWERFUL THAN THE MIGHTY FU#KIN' CAESAR -- BY LIGHT YEARS .

    this has now passed on to LORE -- never ti happen again in the annals of sea .

    am i boasting ?

    -- so be it !

    humility is NOT about having a low opinion of yourselves to please the JEALOUS party.

    see, this would have been part of my post-- GAMES CAPTAIN PLAYED--

    you made me reveal it prematurely --with your TAMIL PRIDE ! TAKE IT EASY !

    check out my training ship-

    Is there any scientific reason behind this? Because no other region has produced such super genius people in such numbers.

    hi ch,

    i am sure if i were a lawyer, i will NEVER EVER become CJI.

    i am sure if i were an economist, i will NEVER EVER become finance minister.

    you want me to continue ?

    when i was on my training ship in mumbai with 250 other cadets ( two years ) -- the biggest TELUs ( oily and slimy ) and SNEAKS ( snitches ) became SCC ( senior cadet captains ) , CC ( cadet captains ) , CL ( cadet leaders ) etc.

    i used to be in the CAPTAINS MONTHLY BREAKFAST PARTY ( cadet with maximum negative marks for OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES ) -- to be chewed up for breakfast every month .

    i got an EXTRA FIRST in every subject --except OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES.

    now what are OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES-

    being a son of a bit#h, being a sneak, being a hypocrite, being a as$ kisser , being a leader who will sell out his team, being a back biter, being an informer , being the best in playing to the gallery.

    so, so--

    at the passing out parade --most of the cadets who got all PRIXES were leaders -- they all got BOOOOOEEEEED !

    I remember i got only one prize--for being the best REPORTER IN ENGLISH -- the claps I got from the entire hall still resound in my ears -- along with another ROC ( royal officer cadet -who did NOT care to become a sold out leader ).

    and mind you -- i was in every single team which made my TOP ( starboard fore top ) the champion TOP.

    i was a champion sailor, rower, signaller, marks in subjects, soccer team in both years --

    but i lacked OLQ ( officer like qualities ) of being a FU#KIN' SLIME BALL.

    so in my passing our certificate , after two years of training -- i had an EXTRA FIRST in all subjects -- except OLQ where i was third grade

    so i guess they held a special meeting and GRACED ME TO FIRST CLASS --a young 18 year old boy -- .TEE HEEE !

    AT SEA, THE SAILORS DO NOT CARE FOR YOUR FOUR STRIPES- THEY ONLY CARE FOR WHO YOU ARE--

    AT SEA PEOPLE WHO KNOW ME , OR HAVE HEARD OF ME -- OR SAILED WITH ME, WILL VOUCH--

    CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL WAS A SLAVE MORE POWERFUL THAN THE MIGHTY FU#KIN' CAESAR -- BY LIGHT YEARS .

    this has now passed on to LORE -- never ti happen again in the annals of sea .

    am i boasting ?

    -- so be it !

    humility is NOT about having a low opinion of yourselves to please the JEALOUS party.

    see, this would have been part of my post-- GAMES CAPTAIN PLAYED--

    you made me reveal it prematurely --with your TAMIL PRIDE ! TAKE IT EASY !

    check out my training ship-

    hi l,

    before 7000 BC, the whole world was called bharatvarsha- ruled from India.

    BHARAT ONLY GAVE-- WE NEVER TOOK .

    today we play cricket -- 9.5 countries --between the TAKERS ( thieves ) and the GIVERS ( who got robbed ) .


    ISL will now wean Indians away from cricket-

    we will do well in this game -- as Indian can think better than others.

    TEAM WORK IS LIKE SOCCER DYNAMICS.

    i have always used this principle as leader of a team-- all have to anticipate--

    I WAS THE FIRST TO START "DYNAMIC ROVING SQUAD : --GOING AGAINST THE COMPANY RULES-

    NOBODY DARED TO SACK ME.

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

    I TORE UP THE "EMERGENCY STATIONS" COMPANY FORMAT STUCK ON THE WALLS --AND USED MY OWN--

    I DARED MY BOSSES--

    SACK ME FOR INCOMPETENCE-- they could NOT.

    I DARED MY BOSSES-- sack me for disobedience

    they could NOT-- as captain is responsible for safety and can OVER RIDE every company procedure when it was warranted.

    I WAS THE ONLY CAPTAIN, WHO USED THE SWORD OF CAPTAIN'S AUTHORITY , BEFORE THE ISM ERA.

    nobody dared to use this sword--a s you stood to get sacked -- or not be recalled for the next contract after your leave is over --

    I HAD TALKED OF BEING LIBERATED -- TWO DAYS AGO.

    i think my next post will be a hollywood movie review on-

    THE QUICK AND THE DEAD --

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pp_jriZDSS8

    I TOLD MY COMPANIES PRETTY MUCH THE SAME THING - SLAVE TELLING CAESAR --

    THIS IS MY FU#KIN' SHIP !

    amazing performance from gene hackman-- acting ho to aisa !

  8. SOMEBODY ASKED ME --

    WHY WERE YOU SUCH A SUCCESSFUL SHIP CAPTAIN-- YOU HAVE WRITTEN SEVERAL POSTS ON MANAGEMENT , BUT LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE KEPT CERTAIN SECRETS AWAY

    INDEED !

    OK--LET ME GIVE A TEASER

    THE "FULCRUM" WAS ALWAYS IN MY POCKET.

    I ADJUSTED THE FULCRUM OF THE LEVER MYSELF-- NEVER DELEGATED OR ABDICATED THE FULCRUM ADJUSTMENT JOB--

    FULCRUM is a thing that plays a central or essential role in an activity, event, or situation.

    A simple lever pivots on a fulcrum. If you understand how this works you already know 50%

    Fulcrum (pivot / axis ) decides on QUANTITY VERSUS QUALITY

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlYEi0PgG1g

    I even decided on JOY and PAIN or FRUSTRATION and REWARD. People knew this and nobody fucked around with me.

    There are paradoxes

    For example in speed reading -- this is a quantum act, there is hardly any trade off between speed and comprehension like the classical quality / quantity lever on a fulcrum.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/02/speed-reading-capt-ajit-vadakayil.html

    BELOW IS FOR NARENDRA MODI

    WE KNOW YOUR PATHETIC “NEED FOR QUANTITY”

    REMEMBER QUALITY INCREASES WHEN QUANTITY REDUCES

    THIS APPLIES TO VEDIC A2 MILK, VEDIC SEEDS ETC

    A HUMPLESS WESTERN JERSEY COW WHO GIVES A 200 LITRE DRUM OF MILK A DAY IS NOT SUPERIOR TO A HUMPED VEDIC COW WHICH GIVES ONLY ONE 10 LITRE BUCKET OF MILK.

    APCO MODI— NEXT TIME YOU DEAL WITH GM COMPANIES / GENETIC ENGINEERING COMPANIES REMEMBER THE LINE ABOVE.

  9. SOME ONE SAID--

    IT IS ALL RIGHT FOR YOU TO HOLLER "NEXT" IF SOMEONE REJECTS YOU

    BUT ALL ARE NOT IN YOUR GRADE

    I HAVE TOLD THIS BEFORE AND I WILL TELL IT AGAIN

    I AM THE ONLY PERSON ON THE PLANET WHO SELECTED HIGH RANKING OFFICERS BY THEIR QUESTIONS AND NOT THEIR ANSWERS

    I WOULD SELECT WHITE SKINNED CAPTAINS, CHIEF ENGINEERS, CHIEF OFFICERS AND SECOND ENGINEERS , BY MAKING THEM READ SOME MATERIAL I WROTE

    I WOULD SAY-- TAKE THESE SHEETS OF PAPER TO YOUR HOTEL- READ IT--TOMORROW AT 2 PM, COME BACK HERE -- ASK ME QUESTIONS --IF YOUR QUESTIONS ARE GOOD, YOU ARE IN. I WONT ASK YOU ANYTHING

    THEY WOULD BE TOTALLY STUNNED .

    INDEED MY METHOD BORE FRUIT-- I SELECTED THE BEST "ON THEIR TERMS" -- NOT MINE.

    I DID NOT ALLOW "LACK OF COMPETENCE IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE " AFFECT THEIR CHANCES .

    THE EAST EUROPEANS, WHO WERE MORE COMPETENT THAN THEIR WESTERN COUNTERPARTS WERE MOST GRATEFUL-- NAY --TOUCHED .

    CHOOTS WHO DONT UNDERSTAND THE SUBJECT ALWAYS ASK STUPID QUESTIONS.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/01/naive-sailor-magnetised-pv-valves-capt.html

    IN THE POST ABOVE , I PROVE THAT I HAVE DONE MORE FOR CLIMATE CHANGE THAN AL FUCKIN' GORE ...

    CHOOTS CAN NOT EVEN UNDERSTAND , THE HUGE WORLD IMPACT OF THE POST.

    IN THE COMMENTS COLUMN A WHITE SKINNED SCANDINAVIAN ( BIG BOSS OF A HARDWARE COMPANY ) APPRECIATES WHAT I WROTE AND SAYS-- HE HAS UNDERSTOOD WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN AND HE HAS ADDRESSED IT AGAINST ALL ODDS..

    I TELL MY READERS THIS -- AT SEA I WAS A THINKER AND A MASTER IMPLEMENTER

    TODAY I AM RETIRED -- I JUST THINK.

    MY READERS HAVE TO IMPLEMENT.

    QUOTE: By the way NO regulation allows methanol spray with SCBA IBC sets. IBC sets are not for working in the literal sense. " Working time " relates to "lung demand" of free air, which is 10 litres / min for rest, 30 litres/ min for light work and 100 litres / min for strain of fireman's lift. Fill up a form in capital does NOT mean you have to take a flight to the capital city of your country. SCBA sets are for emergencies and must be donned by two sailors.UNQUOTE

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/01/airline-breathing-apparatus-on-chemical.html

    THIS "WORKING TIME / LUNG DEMAND TIME" THINGY HAS NOW BEEN UNDERSTOOD BY THE POWERS AT SEA.

    THE WISDOM OF NOT HAVING TO TAKING A FLIGHT TO NEW DELHI TO FILL UP A MANGY FORM "IN CAPITAL" HAS BEEN GRASPED.

    GOD MUST LOVE STUPID PEOPLE-- HE MADE SO MANY- MOST OF THEM ARE BOSSES-- FOR SHEER ABILITY TO COMPROMISE.

      CAPTAIN YOU HAVE NOT TOLD US EVERYTING ABOUT SELECTING PEOPLE ON THE BASIS OF THEIR QUESTIONS--NOT THEIR ANSWERS

      INDEED

      I HAVE PENNED 1100 BLOGPOSTS -- I HAVE REVEALED LESS THAN 40% IN ALL THOSE POSTS ..

      I AM NOT IN THE HABIT OF LAYING DOWN ALL MY CARDS ON THE TABLE-- I KEEP THE ACE UP MY SLEEVE

      IMAGINE A EUROPEAN CHIEF ENGINEER COMES TO ME FOR AN INTERVIEW.

      HE SEES MY DESK PLATE "CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL"

      THE FIRST QUESTION IS " ARE YOU DOUBLE CERTIFICATED -- AS A NAVIGATOR AND AN ENGINEER?"

      THE ANSWER IS "NOPE"

      IMMEDIATELY YOU CAN SEE IT IN HIS EYES " WHAT DOES THIS BLACK MONKEY KNOW . HE IS NOT AN ENGINEER "

      THEN I GIVE HIM SOMETHING LIKE THE BELOW POST--( just an example)

      http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/07/draw-diagram-marine-two-stroke-main.html

      BY THE WAY--THE DRAW DIAGRAM OF THE SHIPs MAIN ENGINE IS LIKE THE ECG OF THE HEART

  10. WE HAVE TO CRUSH THE NAXAL THINKERS AND SUPPORTERS --

    EXAMPLE ?

    JNU COMMIE PROFESSORS, COLLEGIUM JUDICIARY IN FOREIGN PAYROLL, NHRC, NCM, NCW, TROJAN HORSE NGOs etc

    BUT MODI DOES NOT HAVE THE BALLS

    HE IS AFRAID OF JEW NOAM CHOMSKY

    ########

    long ago i had an emergency on my SCI ship ( 1983)

    a technical shore boss flew down to be on board-- he was a TOP HONCHO.

    he was my chief engineers batchmate ( both ENGINE ROOM ARTIFICERS or GLORIFIED FITTERS from indian navy -- they have practical knowledge but theory is ZERO )

    to cut a long story short--

    the chief engineer was screening a HIT hindi movie in the officers lounge with his new VCR with the shore boss and half my crew / officers there watching the movie -

    --dereliction of duty in an emergency!

    as soon as i entered the lounge all ran away --leaving behind chief engineer and his batchmate shore boss ( both RUSTIC punjabis with zilch class )

    i asked my chief engineer-- have you completed transferring bunkers the way i told you.

    he said --NOT YET

    i said-- AS LONG AS THE SHIP IS IN THIS PORT, YOUR SHORE LEAVE IS CUT , AS PUNISHMENT

    his batchmate boss comes to his defence-- CAPTAIN , YOU CANNOT CUT CHIEF ENGINEERs SHORE LEAVE ( both were planning to go ashore IKKATTA )

    i replied-- OH YEAH? -- NOW I WANT HIM TO GO ASHORE --I WONT PUNISH HIM -- I WILL PUNISH YOU .

    knowing how hard core i could be -- both slunk away with the VCR like beaten dogs

    THERE ARE TIMES A LEADER MUST SHOW STRENGTH

    MY OFFICERS AND CREW WHO RAN AWAY--WERE ALL LISTENING TO THIS SHOWDOWN FROM OUTSIDE PEEPING EVERY WHICH WAY, EVEN FROM PANTRY PORT

    THEY ALL KNEW WHO IS BOSS ON THE SHIP

    KNOW YOUR POWERS --ALWAYS

    EPILOGUE: LATER I THREW OUT THE SHORE BOSS FROM MY SHIP.. GAVE HIM 60 SECONDS TO LEAVE -- HE RAN FOR HIS LIFE --NO TIME TO COLLECT HIS BELONGINGS --

    i warned --AFTER 60 SECONDS MY CREW WILL CATCH HIM AND THROWN HIM FROM THE MAIN DECK INTO THE BOAT -- A HUGE HEIGHT --HIS BONES WOULD BE BROKEN .

    i had to face a disciplinary enquiry later with SCI -- i came out the winner

    -- reason?

    this shore boss tried to undermine CAPTAINs AUTHORITY ( another incident )

    if you ask people who know me --even my worst detractor-- all will vouch--CAPTAIN WAS KING !

    THIS STORY SPREAD LIKE WILD FIRE -- I BECAME DON CORLEONE ( circumstances early in life )

  11. PATHETIC MORONS LIKE AMARTYA SEN AND MANMOHAN SINGH ARE DECRYING CHANGES OF GOVT STRATEGY DURING 50 DAYS OF DEMONETIZATION

    ONLY A CUNT WILL LOOK AHEAD WHEN THE ENEMY HAS MANEUVERED HIMSELF BEHIND HIM --OR IN HIS BLIND / SHADOW SECTOR

    I WAS THE FIRST ON THE PLANET TO PROPOUND "DYNAMIC" RISK ASSESSMENT AT SEA

    AT SEA, WHEN THERE WAS AN EMERGENCY, CHIEF ENGINEER WAS SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE ENGINE ROOM--LIKE A MUSHROOM

    I OBJECTED--

    I SAID-- CHIEF ENGINEER MAY BE THE SENIOR MOST ENGINEER-- BUT HE WILL NOT KNOW THE PIPELINES AND PROCEDURES -- WHICH THE JUNIOR MOST 5TH ENGINEER REGULAR WATCH KEEPER WITH HANDS ON EXPERIENCE WILL KNOW BETTER.

    I INSISTED --

    I WANT CHIEF ENGINEER AS MY ROVING SQUAD. -- TO WATCH FOR COMING SHADOWS -- FOR ME AS CAPTAIN ON THE BRIDGE TO CHANGE HIS STRATEGY

    IT TOOK ME MORE THAN TEN YEARS TO CONVINCE THE MARITIME POWERS.

    AS SOON AS I JOIN A SHIP- I TEAR DOWN COMPANY EMERGENCY STATION POSTERS AND PUT MY OWN THING WITH CHIEF ENGINEER AS ROVING SQUAD--

    HE IS NOW THE EYES AND EARS OF THE CAPTAIN WHO CANT SEE ---THOUGH IN COMMAND .

    COMPANY WILL RAVE AND RANT, QUOTING I AM NOT FOLLOWING THE SOP APPROVED BY ISM CODE/ SMS SYSTEMS -- I TELL THEM FUCK OFF

    THE LEADER OF SQUADS FIGHTING THE FIRE WILL SAY "WE ARE THE BEST"-- APUN AWWAL !

    SOMEONE ELSE HAS TO JUDGE THEM

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

    IF I WERE THE PM OF INDIA, I WOULD BE HAVING A HARD COPY ( SIGNED BY CRITICAL MEMBERS ) OF EVERY DAY SINCE DEMONETIZATION STARTED ON 8TH NOV 2016

    THIS MEANS I WOULD HAVE 50 PRINTED AND SIGNED COPIES OF RISK ASSESSMENT

    AS A PM I WOULD KEEP THE "CERTAINTY SWITCH " IN MY POCKET

    I WAS A SUCCESSFUL CAPTAIN AT SEA , BECAUSE MY METHODS WERE 100% FOOL PROOF.

    NOTHING --REPEAT --NOTHING WOULD BE DONE WITHOUT A PROPER RISK ASSESSMENT BEFORE AND A DYNAMIC RA DURING -- AND A FINAL BRAINSTORMING FEEDBACK MEETING

    AND MOST OF THE TIME WHEN IT CAME TO MAJOR CRITICAL THINGS -I DID "BRAIN STORMING " WITH EVERY MEMBER OF THE CREW.

    I GET VALUABLE FEEDBACK

    THEN I HAVE A REM SLEEP SESSION

    ONLY AFTER THAT I TAKE MY DECISION

    THERE WAS A FANTASTIC PROCEDURE ( not requited by the company or IMO ) --AND I AM PROUD OF MYSELF

    WISDOM IS THE FRUIT OF BRAIN STORMING

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/11/blue-ocean-leadership-capt-ajit.html

    THERE WAS A TIME WHEN MY SHIP WOULD HAVE SUNK-- AND ONE JUNIOR MOST ENGINE ROOM CLEANER ( WIPER ) GAVE A SUGGESTION FOR TIGHTENING LASHINGS ( LOG CARRIER ) DURING EMERGENCY BRAINSTORMING WHICH SAVED THE SHIP-

    --OF COURSE I HAD NO TIME FOR REM SLEEP.

    TO BE FRANK INDIA NEEDS TO SACK ALL PROFESSORS OF PREMIUM COLLEGES ( DEADWOOD / SPENT FORCES ) IF INDIA HAS TO BE NO 1 SUPERPOWER ON THE PLANET IN 16 YEARS

    BUT HEY--MODI HAS PUT HIS POODLE CHITPAVAN JAVEDEKAR IN CHARGE

    MODI WANTS EGO MASSAGE !

    HIS PATHETIC TEAM INSTEAD OF DOING THEIR FUCKIN' JOBS , JUST SUCK UP FOR PERSONAL FAAYADA.

    AT SEA I WAS THE ONLY CAPTAIN WHO KICKED MY BOSSES ON THEIR COLLECTIVE BALLS FROM HOUR ONE.

    Captain,

    Patton movie is being telecast right now on Star Movies Select HD.

    The actor is very good !

    And, his "balls of steel" and "don't give a damn" attitude reminded me of you !

    If we have leaders like this, loyalty of people will skyrocket !

    Imagine, if an actor can pull this off in such a consistent manner, inspiring loyalty amongst the movie watching audience,

    Then, it is no wonder that you were, are and will be the most popular Captain ever !!!

    Strict in disciple and other matters but still loved by all !!!

    hi a,

    DEEP INSIDE PEOPLE LOVE A STRONG LEADER WHO ENFORCES DISCIPLINE

    THE TRICK IS NOT TO SHOW PARTIALITY

    YET --I GAVE MY OFFICERS "PRIVELAGE OF THE POST"

    AT THE END OF THE MONTH OFFICERS AND CREW LINE UP OUTSIDE MY CABIN TO SIGN THEIR SALARY SHEETS AND PORTAGE BILL

    NO CREW MEMBER DARES TO COME INTO MY CABIN AHEAD OF EVEN THE JUNIOR MOST OFFICER

    IT IS A RECORD I MAINTAINED-- I ALLOW ONLY 20 SECONDS FOR A CREW MEMBER OR OFFICER TO COME IN TO MY CABIN, SIT DOWN BY MY SIDE, SIGN TWO SHEETS ( CREW HAS TO SIGN OVER TIME SHEETS TOO )--

    TAKE A TOKEN PRESENT LIKE A MACKINTOSH QUALITY STREET CHOCOLATE FROM ME- AND BUZZ OFF WITH HIS SALARY SHEET

    I TIME THIS - THIRD MATE IS IN CHARGE OF PHYSICAL MOVEMENTS -I JUST SIT THERE

    I DONT USE COMPANIES SOFTWARE --I USE MINE

    EVERY COMPANY OBJECTED-- I TOLD THEM FUCK OFF .. BECAUSE MY SOFTWARE WAS SUPERIOR ..

    AT SEA NOBODY LIKE A WEAK CAPTAIN-- A SHIT ASS DRIPPING CUNT ...

    THEY LOVE A STRONGMAN WHO PROVIDES A ROOF -- WHO KICKS ASS --WHO MAKES SURE THEY WILL REACH HOME SAFE WITH THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY ..

    I HAVE NEVER BEEN MEAN -- ALL KNOW THAT

    IF SOME SAILOR SCREWS IT UP AND I DONT PUNISH HIM ON THE SPOT--HE WILL FALL SICK

    THEY LOVE MY PUNISHEMNT AND GO BACK TO THEIR CABINS --WITH A SONG ON THEIR LIPS

    WHEN YOU CAN DO THIS-- YOU HAVE ARRIVED AS A LEADER WITH SPIRIT.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/11/blue-ocean-leadership-capt-ajit.html

    IF YOU ASK SAILORS WHO KNOW ME OR HEARD OF CAPT VADAKAYIL--THEY WILL TELL YOU, THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A CAPTAIN AT SEA WHO BLED SAILORS ( WHO DESERVED TO BE BLED )

    I WAS A MENTOR AT SEA —NOT A MERE LEADER . .

    funtoosh--

    I JUST REMINISCED --

    WHICH WAS MY MOST HEARTFELT "THANK YOU "

    I HAD JUST SIGNED OFF MY SHIP

    THE WHOLE OFFICERS/ CREW / OFFICERS WIVES WERE AT THE GANGWAY TO SEE ME OFF

    THE WHOLE PROCESS WAS SILENT--

    NO FAATHU WORDS--NO MAXIMUM MAXIMUS CHANTS --

    ONLY ONE SECOND EYE TO EYE LOCKS –

    WORDS SPOIL THIS PREGNANT GOODBYE.

    THIS WAS IN NEW YORK ANCHORAGE

    THE BOAT SHOVED OFF

    WHEN THE FAST LARGE BOAT WAS ABOUT 50 METRES OFF --I SAW ALL ON SHIP WAVING HANDS-- "COME BACK "

    THIS HAD HAPPENED TO ME BEFORE , AS ONCE I LEFT MY SLEEVELESS JACKET WITH PASSPORT / AIR TICKET AND MONEY ( MORE THAN 20000 USD ) BEHIND

    I TURNED THE BOAT BACK

    AS SOON AS IT REACHED THE GANGWAY I NOTICES THE PUMPMAN STANDING AT THE BOTTOM PLAFORM.

    HE LEAPT INTO THE BOAT ( A CHASM OF 5 FEET )

    THIS BLACK SWEATY TAMILIAN HUGGED ME HARD -- I WAS SOAKED IN HIS SWEAT

    HE TELLS ME IN HINDI " SAAB AAP JAHAAZ PAR HAI TO JAAN HA PARVAAH NAHI " ( SIR--WHEN YOU ARE IN COMMAND , WE ARE NOT AFRAID OF OUR LIVES )

    AND THEN HE LEAPT BACK TO THE SHIP

    much later i reminisced -- i had gone down to the pumproom during cargo discharge and noticed 9 inches of petrol in he bilges . this ship could carry 65,000 tonnes of petrol. i asked him--what is all this. i guess he expected me to screw him for dereliction of duty

    my chief officer was an incompetent CUNT

    i took charge after cargo discharge and did the repairs PERSONALLY.. no captain does this -- nor he has the competence.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/12/pumping-systems-on-chemical-tankers.html

    IT WAS ABOUT MECHANICAL SEALS FITTED THE WRONG WAY--THIS COULD HAVE CAUSED A FIRE

    THAT SHIP -- MANNED BY WHITE CUNT AMERICANS BEFORE - HAD FEW BOURDEN TUBE DIRECT PRESSURE GUAGES IN THE CCR, INSTEAD OF REMOTE PRESSURE GUAGES RUN BY CONTROL AIR

    EVERYTHING WAS FUCKIN' HAYWIRE

    THE IG PRESSURE WOULD SHOW DIFFERENT AT PUMPROOM, CCR, ENGINE ROOM, BRIDGE AND ON DECK

    ALL IT REQUIRED WAS SOME EXPERTISE OF "PNEUMATIC INSTRUMENTATION " WHICH I HAD. JUST A SMALL TURN OF A SMALL SCREW DRIVER…

    NO MARINE ENGINEER ON THIS PLANET ( PAST/ PRESENT / FUTURE ) HAS IT -- FLAPPER/ ORIFICE TECHNOLOGY.

    WHEN THE CRANE COULD NOT LIFT THE SUBMARINE HOSE AND ALL ENGINEERS HAD FAILED FOR 4 HOURS —

    --I HAD CLIMBED UP THE CRANE AND REPAIRED THE CRANE IN 5 MINUTES .. OR MY SHIP WOULD BE CAST OFF -- THE WHOLE CREW WATCHED – CAPTAIN DID IT ALONE ..

    THIS PUMPMAN WITH 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE AT SEA HAD NOTICED ALL THIS .. HE HAD RUN UP FROM THE BOWELS OF THE SHIP TO CRY --GOOD BYE ..

    IT WAS A GENUINE COMPLIMENT, FROM THE BOTTOM OF HIS HEART . HE DID NOT CARE IF HIS SWEAT HAD RUINED MY AIRPORT DRESS.

    NOT LIKE A PATRONISING COOK TELLING THE CAPTAIN FOR PERSONAL FAAYADA " VERY GOOD NAVIGATION !"

    TRY BEING THE SLAVE WHO IS MORE POWERFUL THAN CAESAR.

    IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU—WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW—

    PEOPLE ARE MAKING MONEY OUT OF OUTDATED 2D BONO THINKING

    THE WORLD HAS PROGRESSED TO 4D VADAKAYIL BINDU THINKING

    GO PAST ONION LAYERS , SIT AT THE CORE AND LOOK OUTWARDS- FACTORING IN TIME

    THIS IS WHAT MAKES MY ELDER SON THE BEST SOFTWARE CODER ON THE PLANET

    CHINAs ECONOMY IS A CASTLE BUILT ON SAND--

    READ BOTH PARTS OF THE POST BELOW--

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2017/07/can-china-afford-war-with-india-come-on.html

    ONE OF THE REASONS WHY MY BOSSES ASHORE ( WHO HATED MY GUTS LIKE THE PLAGUE ) TOLERATED ME--WAS BECAUSE OF ONLY ONE THING

    CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL COULD BE SEND ON THE WORST SHIP IN THE FLEET-- HE WOULD LAY A SOLID FOUNDATION WHICH ENDURED FOR YEARS -- AND THESE BOSSES WOULD BE CAREFUL THAT THE RELAY BATON NEVER FELL DOWN IN BETWEEN ( MY CONDITION )

    EVEN SIMPLE THINGS LIKE PIPELINE DIAGRAMS I WOULD DRAW IN MY OWN HAND ON THE WALLS ( BULKHEAD ) USING MULTICOLORED PERMANENT MARKER PENS WITH MY SIGNATURE AFFIXED UNDERNEATH

    THESE DIAGRAMS ( SCHEMATIC ) STILL EXIST DECADES AFTER I DELIVERED A NEW SHIP

    I NEVER SAW A PLAN MADE BY THE YARD-- I CRAWLED UNDER PIPELINES AND MADE MY OWN DIAGRAM.

    THE DELIVERY CHIEF ENGINEER WOULD ASK ME --HOW I DID THE JOB SO FAST-- I WOULD REPLY --"I DONT CONFUSE ASSHOLE FROM ELBOW"

    I ALWAYS MARVELED AT MY OWN ABILITY TO REDUCE A CONFUSING 3D PIPELINE MAZE INTO A SIMPLE 2D SCHEMATIC DIAGRAM--AND I NUMBERED VALVES SO THAT EVEN THE COOK COULD OPERATE IT IN AN EMERGENCY

    I MADE MY OWN SIMPLIFIED OPERATION PROCEDURES --CUTTING THROUGH THE CRAP--THIS IS WHY SHORE BOSSES PREFERRED TO SEND ME FOR DELIVERY OF A NEW SHIP

    EVEN SETTING UP POTS AND PANS -- SETTING UP STORES AND SPARES WITH NUMBERD SHELVES -- IT IS ALL PART OF THE INITIAL FOUNDATION

    WANNA SEE A SIMPLIFIED SCHEMATIC DIAGRAM

    WOW !

    Simplifying very-complex 3D-technical-diagrams into concise-2D-diagrams so that even a simple cook can understand and operate in an emergency is beyond Wow !

    No-wonder your elder son is such a high-level coder. Such "ability-to-simplify" is in his genes ! :D

      I HAD THE UNIQUE ABILITY TO TRACE PIPELINES ON THE SPOT AND TAKE INSTANT DECISIONS

      NOBODY DARED TO QUESTION THESE DECISIONS .

      WHEN I WENT TO SEE THE MOVIE "POINT BREAK : I HAD A NICE LAUGH

      PEOPLE ARE WORSHIPING RATS FOR THEIR HUMAN SPIRIT

      IF HAVE DONE THOUSAND TIMES BETTER AND NEVER BOASTED ABOUT THIS

      I HAVE NOT WRITTEN MY BOOK "GAMES CAPTAIN PLAYED " AS IT WOULD BE TOO MUCH FOR ANYBODY TO READ -

      ###########

      There was this time , my ship was coming out of a narrow tributary of mighty river Amazon. We were timed to cross a shallow bar at high water.

      While we were crossing the bar , I got a frantic call from Chief Engineer—all temperatures of sea water cooled machinery ( main engines/ generators etc ) were rising rapidly –with the added information that we are on HIGH sea suction which is nearly 4 metres above the ship’s bottom LOW sea suction.

      This meant that river mud had ingressed the seawater inlet pipes.

      Chief Engineer arbitrarily informed that he wants to shut down the main engines and generators--lest the pistons get seized in the cylinders .

      I firmly commanded him—“ You cannot stop any machinery till I order you to do it . Go to manual override . This is an emergency and I now control the ship’s response “

      Immediately I told the Brazilian river pilot—I now have taken over your pilotage under Master’s authority.

      I quickly consulted the chart and literally power waded the ship to a deep sliver of water. Meanwhile I had the anchors ready.

      As soon as I dropped anchor, I raced to the engine room. The ENTIRE engineers were there white faced with all sorts of alarms beeping.

      CONTINUED FROM 1--

      I quickly got the ship’s fresh water tank hooked on to the generators using the “international shore coupling” and fire hose after knocking off a flange . The best part was that only I knew the pipelines—I traced it then and there .

      The cooling water starved generators gasped back to life.

      I got the LOW sea suction opened up and got clean river water into the cooling systems.

      To cut a long story short we now had the mud cleared out and main engines and generators all running smooth.

      When I went back to the bridge the pilot said that we cant do night navigation in the tributary as per rules.

      I told him, we cant remain there for daylight as at the next turn of tide , the ships rudder would hit the river bank and then my brand new ship is history.

      I told him—“I WILL TAKE THE SHIP OUT IN DARKNESS . I KNOW THE RIVER BENDS , THE DEEPS AND SILTED AREAS . I WILL COMMIT IN WRITING”

      Anyways , I got search lights out at the forecastle and we started our trip in absolute darkness with river bank trees almost brushing the ship at certain areas.

      The entire river tribals had taken out fire torches are were whistling and clapping as we whooshed past at terrific speed beating the fall of tide depth.

      Finally , as we exited the tributary and entered the mighty Amazon, the young pilot remarked that he was confident that I would do it. But if we had run aground , polluted and blocked the tributary, we both would have been in a Brazilian jail.

      The rest of my stunned crew could only say “ CAPTAIN DELIVERED AGAINST ALL ODDS-- AS USUAL “.

      The grapevine had spread the engine crew has spread the world of how captain TOOK OVER TECHNICAL OPERATIONAL COMMAND OF THE ENGINE ROOM and how every order was followed without demur ..

      What I have said above is a tour de force.

      It far exceeds the extreme sport efforts of the incidents in the movie , where the stake is only life or limb. The loaded ship cannot be stopped like a motor bike , ice skate or surfing board.

      Since this happened on a El Nino year 1997 , I have got up thrice at night reliving this incident in a deep sweat.

      No, it was NOT a nightmare, but “reliving “ the incident in a vivid dream where my body succumbed to faster heartbeats, hyperventilation and sweat.. while in REAL life I was cool .

      Or was it a dream ?

      -- the waving torches held by half naked tribals, the whistling , the clapping , the WHOOSH sound of river bank trees showing up at the last moment to bright searchlights on the bow on a moonless night

      Total silence on the navigating bridge except my con orders and the repeating of orders by my helmsman and Chief Mate.

  17. SOMEBODY ASKED ME

    IF YOU ELDER SON WANTED TO BE A SHIPCAPTAIN LIKE YOU WHY DID YOU NOT ALLOW IT ?

    REASON:-- HE WOULD HAVE BEEN A MISFIT AT SEA

    I STOPPED MY "NAIVE SAILOR SERIES" BECAUSE I DID NOT WANT TO REVEAL WHAT A BUNCH OF MINDLESS CUNTS MAN SHIPS-- AND MANAGE THE FORTUNES OF SAILORS AT LAW MAKING IMO

    ONCE MY 8 YEAR OLD ELDER SON ASKED ME "DADDY , WHY ARE SAILORS SO STUPID?"

    THE INCIDENT ABOUT "FALLING RAT GUARDS" IS NARRATED IN THE POST BELOW

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/01/snow-shovelling-and-backache-capt-ajit.html

    NOW I WILL JUST NARRATE TWO EXAMPLES TO AUTHENTICATE " BUNCH OF MINDLESS CUNTS MAN SHIPS "

    GOD STRIKE ME AND MY FAMILY DEAD IF I TELL A LIE NOW

    AAA -- FOR 30 YEARS IN COMMAND --I HAVE MUSTERED MY CHIEF MATE/ SECOND MATE/ THIRD MATE/ CADETS ON THE BRIDGE AND ASKED THEM TO TELL ME THE DIRECTION OF WIND/ SEA AND SWELL

    100% HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO TELL .

    I AM TALKING ABOUT HUNDREDS OF NAVIGATING OFFICERS

    YOU CANT PREVENT DAMAGE TO SHIP , IF YOU DONT KNOW THIS

    FOR EXAMPLE " WHEN YOU ARE NEARBY A HURRICANE , WHEN YOU FACE THE WIND-- THE STORM EYE ( FROM WHERE SWELL COMES ) IS 90 DEGREES TO THE RIGHT IN THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE WHEN THE HURRICANE IS CLOSE AND 135 DEG TO THE RIGHT WHEN THE STORM IS FAR AWAY.

    THIS IS CALLED BUY BALLOTS LAW

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/12/super-typhoon-bart-perfect-storm-capt.html

    YOU CANT EVEN CREATE LEE FOR THE PILOTS BOAT OR SHIELD YOUR SAILORS ON DECK FROM SHIPPING GREEN SEAS ( CHEMICAL TANKERS HAVE VERY LOW FREEBOARD ) IF YOU DONT KNOW WHERE SWELL IS COMING FROM

    BBB-- IN MY FIRST MEETING I ASK MY OFFICERS AND CREW A QUESTION--I SHOW THEM THE VOICE MEGAPHONE ( A SIMPLE CONE )--WHAT IS THE USE OF THIS ON THE BRIDGE --IT IS A COMPULSORY ITEM ON THE WHEELHOUSE

    100% TILL TODAY REPLIED--TO SHOUT AND GIVE ORDERS

    I CORRECT-- SORRY, IT IS TO BE APPLIED TO EAR-NOT MOUTH-- TO FIND THE DIRECTION OF A SHIP IN FOG WHICH BLOWS FOG HORN -- OR A NARROW PORT ENTRY SHIP CHANNEL WHICH GIVE ( BELL/ GONG / WHISTLE ) SIGNALS FROM BUOYS ON EITHER SIDE

    IMMEDIATELY ONE SAILOR IS BOUND TO SAY--SORRY THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE

    IMMEDIATELY I BLINDFOLD THE SAME SAILOR ( THIS BLINDFOLD IS KEPT READY )-- I ASK THAT HE BE TURNED AROUND -

    I GIVE A FOG SIGNAL USING MY MOUTH--- HOOOOOOOOOO-- AND ASK HIM TO IDENTIFY THE DITRECTION BY USING HIS FINGER

    AFTER THREE SUCH EXERCISES WITH THREE DIFFERENT SAILORS--ALL ARE CONVINCED

    AT SEA IF YOU DONT KNOW FOG SIGNALS--YOU FAIL IN EXAMS

    http://www.aztecsailing.co.uk/newaztec/theory/ch4/Colreg4s3.html

    I CAN GO ON -- GIVE YOU A HUNDRED EXAMPLES

    THIS IS WHY I STOPPED MY NAIVE SAILOR SERIES --NOT SHOWING THE WORLD --WHAT A BUNCH OF STUPID CUNTS --WORK ON SHIPS-- OR CREATE INTERNATIONAL RULES FOR SAILORS

    THE GENIUS WHITE MEN IN IMO DONT UNDERSTAND-- SO I HAVE TO EXPLAIN TO THEM LIKE HOW I WILL EXPLAIN TO A RETARDED CHILD-- CIRCUS TRAPEZE ETC


    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/01/single-hook-for-enclosed-lifeboats-capt.html

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/07/enclosed-lifeboat-accidents-and-imo.html

    IN MUMBAI I USED TO VISIT TRAINING INSTITUTES AND PHYSICALLY TEAR DOWN POSTERS ON WALLS-- AND THEN SOMEBODY IS BOUND TO NOTICE IT-- AND TAKE ME TO THE DEAN--AS IF I AM A TERRORIST

    I CALL THE DEAN A CUNT-- I EXPLAIN THE MEANING OF "STRONG POINT "

    THIS USUALLY TAKES MORE THAN 20 MINUTES TO MAKE HIM UNDERSTAND A SIMPLE THING- MY 8 YEAR OLD SON WOULD UNDERSTAND IN 10 SECONDS

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/01/naive-sailor-sinking-ships-capt-ajit.html

    WHEN I MAKE DEFICIENCY LIST FOR A NEW SHIP--I AM DELIVERING FROM THE SHIP YARD --EVERYBODY IN THE YARD ( ALL GOLD MEDALIST GENIUS TYPES ) GET BAMBOOZLED

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/02/naive-sailor-ship-construction-capt.html

    YOU MAKE ENEMIES INSTANTLY

    WHEN A MATH TEACHER IN SCHOOL IS CORRECTED IN CLASS BY A INTELLIGENT STUDENT AGAIN AND AGAIN-- THE TEACHER WILL FAIL HIM IN EXAMS --EVEN IF HE SCORES 100%

    I HAVE PREDICTED SEVERAL MAJOR DISASTERS AT SEA-- AND INCLUDED IT IN THE SHIPS SAFETY COMMITTEE REPORT WELL IN ADVANCE.

    ALL OF IT CAME TRUE

    AS A CAPTAIN I COULD NOT GO TO ENGINE ROOM TO SABOTAGE , RIGHT?

    LET ME REMEMBER THE LAST ONE ABOUT A BOILER

    I RAISED THE ISSUE IN THE SHIPs SAFETY COMMITEE MEETING --AND THE STUPID SARDARJEE CHIEF ENGINEER STARTED FIGHTING WITH ME-- HE SAID MY FEARS ARE UNFOUNDED

    BASICALLY HE WAS TRYING TO KEEP HIS OWN CHAIR SAFE— AND HE DID NOT EVEN UNDERSTAND BASICS .

    #################

    I JOINED THE SHIP AT PANAMA CANAL

    THE WINCHES WERE STEAM--THE BOILERS WERE HUGE

    WHILE ENTERING THE CANAL THE WINCHES WENT PHUTTT AS BOILERS TRIPPED

    SOMEHOW I MANAGED BY GETTING ALL HANDS ON DECK TO PULL ROPES WITH SHEER MUSCLE POWER-- AND I ASKED THE PILOT NOT TO REPORT IT ( WHISKY ) AND CAUSE A DELAY

    IN SUCH SCENARIOS IF CAPTAIN PUTS PRESSURE ON HIS ENGINE STAFF--THEY BYPASS USUAL SAFETY PROCEDURES, TO SAVE THEIR OWN JOBS

    THE SHIP HAD COME OUT OF DRYDOCK ONLY A MONTH AGO, AND DURING BRIEFING AT THE US OFFICE , I FOUND THAT THE ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSER TUBES -- 900 OF THEM WERE RENEWED.

    THE BOILER WAS TRIPPING AS WATER MUST ENTER THE BOILER -- NOT STEAM

    WHEN YOU HAVE STEAM WINCHES THE " NARROW" INLET TUBES ON DECK OF A 900 FOOT LONG SHIP TAKES THE STEAM TO THE WINCHES --IT EXPANDS AFTER THE WORK IS DONE AND THE DEPLETED STEAM COMES BACK VIA A " WIDE " RETURN PIPE.

    IT S THEN CONDENSED TO WATER AND SEND BACK TO BOILER --AS A CLOSED LOOP SYSTEM

    HOWEVER IF THE STEAM IS USED TO HEAT CARGO INSIDE TANKS -- THE ENGINEERING IS REVERSE—

    HERE THE INLET STEAM TUBES ARE "WIDE" AND THE RETURN WATER TUBES ARE "NARROW" AFTER EXCHANGING HEAT-- WATER IS INSIDE THE RETURN TUBES GO BACK TO THE BOILER HOTWELL AND THEN INTO THE BOILER --AS A CLOSED LOOP SYSTEM

    I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY CUNT ENGINEER AT SEA UNDERSTANDING THIS SIMPLE CONCEPT

    EVERY SHIP I GO, I TELL THE SHORE OFFICE TO CHANGE THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE TECHNICAL MANUALS .

    ON CHEMICAL TANKERS IGNORANCE CAN BE DANGEROUS

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/06/steam-heating-on-chemical-tankers-capt_06.html

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/11/marine-engineering-self-examiner.html

    SO SO SO

    AFTER TRANSITTING THE PANAMA CANAL, I HELD A SAFETY COMMITEE MEETING

    I FOUND THE SARDARJEE CHIEF ENGINEER ( WE HAD SAILED BEFORE WHEN I WAS SECOND MATE ON A 3 LAKH TONNER CRUDE CARRIER VLCC-- HE WAS TRAINEE FIFTH ENGINEER ) AND HIS ENGINEERING TEAM TO BE STUPID-NAY –CUNTS .

    ANYWAY I GAVE ORDERS - -THE STEAM WINCH "WIDE" SILVER PAINTED RETURN PIPE CARRYING STEAM BACK TO THE ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSER ( ALMOST ALL TUBES CHOKED BY TOUGH SCALE ) --800 FEET IN LENGTH MUST BE PAINTED BLACK--

    THE COLOUR BLACK IS A GOOD RADIATOR OF HEAT

    THE CUNT ENGINEER DID NOT EVEN KNOW THE PROPERTIES OF SILVER AND BLACK COLOUR

    CONTINUED TO 2-

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. CONTINUED FROM 1-

      THE NEXT FIAT WAS-- TILL THE 90% CHOKED TUBES OF THE ATMOSHPERIC CONDENSOR WAS CLEARED , THE STEAM WINCH MUST BE KEPT ROTATING IDLE --FOR AT LEAST 20 MINUTES BEFORE ACTUAL USE

      THIS WAS TO PREVENT JHATKA ( SURGE )- WHERE WATER FROM COLD RETURN PIPES GOES INTO THE BOILER FIRST AND THEN SUDDENLY HOT STEAM ENTERS

      JATKA CAN MAKE HONI INTO ANHONI-- AND ANHONI INTO HONI ( MAKE OR BREAK WHERE REVERSE HOLDS TRUE )

      I USED JHATKA AS A CHANGE MANAGEMNT TOOL TOO.—THE FAMOUS VADAKAYIL KALARI TAP ON NOSE

      LATER I USED THE SAME JHATKA PRINCIPLE TO CLEAR THE SCALE CHOKED TUBES WITH HOT STEAM AND COLD FREON GAS

      http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/10/marine-engineering-self-examiner-water.html

      YOU KNOW HOW A CHAMPION RACE HORSE FEELS WHILE IN THE SOLE COMPANY OF DONKEYS -- AND HE IS FORCED TO BRAAAAY --JUST TO BLEND IN AND BE PART OF THE FUCKIN’ TEAM

      LATER THE SAME BOILER FURNACE HAD A EXPLOSION ( THE WEAK AREA OF THE FURNACE GAVE WAY ) AND SAVED THE SHIP-- I KNEW THE SPOT ..

      WHEN THE FURNACE EXPLODED I ASKED THE CHIEF ENGINEER TO CHECK THE DELIBERATE WEAK CRUMPLE ZONE SPOT AND HE CONFIRMED IT— LEST THE EXPLOSION BECOMES A BOMB . HERE A BOMB IS CONVERTED TO A WEAK POOFFFF

      I HAD PREDICTED THIS A WEEK IN ADVANCE AND SEND SEVERAL MESSAGES TO THE SHORE BOSSES.

      THIS WAS ABOUT THE WATER WALL PROTECTING THE REFRACTORY. IF THERE IS NO WATERWALL THE REFRACTORY OF THE FURNACE BECOME WHITE HOT --AND BECOMES A PERMANENT HEAT LEG OF THE FIRE TRAINGLE

      IN BOILER FURNACE-- AS SOON AS THE BOILER TRIPS HUGE FD FANS INJECT FRESH AIR BY ACC ( AUTOMATIC COMBUSTION CONTROL )

      SO SO SO

      HEAT IS THERE . FRESH OXYGEN IS INJECTED AND FUEL REMAINS IN A PUDDLE ( FURNACE OIL ) AT THE BOTTOMF THE FURNACE AS THE INJECTION NOZZLE AND SWIRLER IS NO GOOD WITH IMPROPERLY MAINTAINED OIL TEMPERATURES FOR FUEL INJECTION VISCOSITY

      http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/02/naive-sailor-low-sulphur-fuels-capt.html

      ASK ANY MARINE ENGINEER ANYWHERE ON THIS PLANET TO READ THIS COMMENT AND EXPLAIN THE GIST-- HE WILL SHIT IN HIS ENGINEERING LANGOT AND KEEP QUIET. HE WILL NOT BE GOOD ENOUGH TO COMMENT

      FUCKIN' CUNTS !

    MY HARDCORE FANS AT SEA --KNOW THIS --AND THEY ARE SORT OF WOW.

    THIS SIMPLE CONCEPT OF EVALUATING YOURSELF IS WAS WHAT MADE JOHN TRAVOLTAs MOVIE "SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER" A RAGING SUCCESS ( I SAW THIS MOVIE IN LISBON )

    JEWS TAKE NOEL PRIES THEY DONT DESERVE. IN OPEN COMPETITION JEWS ARE NOWHERE --PROVIDED A JEW DOES OT SET THE QUESTION PAPER AND A JEW DOES NOT EVALUATE THE ANSWER SHEET

    CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL WAS ALWAYS THE FIRST TO POINT OUT AT THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM – OR — THAT THE EMPEROR IS NOT WEARING CLOTHES

    MY SHIP HAD REAL WORK – NEVER ACTIVITY TRAPS.

    WHEN YOU ARE CAUGHT IN THE CHAKRAVYUH OF ACTIVITY TRAPS , REAL WORK TAKES A BEATING AND THE SHIP BECOMES UNSAFE. THE SHIP HAS A LIMITED WORKFORCE WHO HAS ONLY 24 HOURS IN A DAY.

    BY ELIMINATING “ACTIVITY TRAPS” I DID EFFECTIVE TIME MANAGEMENT.

    I WAS AN “EFFECTIVE LEADER” AT SEA – MY CREW LITERALLY WORSHIPPED ME BECAUSE THEY KNEW NO WORK IS DONE OF BOARD BECAUSE SOME POMPOUS CUNT ASHORE WANTS IT THAT WAY.

    I CREATED A “CERTAINTY” ON/ OFF SWITCH AND KEPT THAT IN MY POCKET. AS A CAPTAIN I SNATCHED AWAY THE VETO POWER FROM MY SHORE BOSSES AND SHORE POWERS .

    WHEN ARNAB GOSWAMI OF NEW TV CHANNEL REPUBLIC JUMPS UP AND DOWN ( LIKE A DEMENTED COCAINE SNORTING ORANGUTAN ) , HOLLERING THAT MENSTRUATING WOMEN MUST BE ALLOWED TO ENTER SABARIMALA ILGRIMAGE— YOU MUST KNOW WHOSE ORIGINAL KOSHER VOICE HE RELAYS .

    WHY DID JEW OBAMA COME RUNNING TO INDIA TO MEET RTHSCHILDs APCO BRANDED MODI TWO DAYS AGO ?

    JUST WHO THE HELL IS JEW OBAMA TODAY ?— JUST ROTHSCHILDs AGENT CONTROLLING THE KOSHER SHADOW GOVT OF USA . YES— THIS IS THE MEANING OF POINTING OUT TO THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM.

    SO WHAT DOES THE KOSHER CONTROLLED BEHEMOTH BITCOIN MINING CONSORTIUM DO ?

    THEY CONSUME THE ELECTRICITY OF 157 NATIONS OF THIS PLANET. IN REALITY , AS PER MY CALCULATIONS IT IS 162 NATIONS .

    IT IS COMPULSORY FOR ALL MY READERS TO CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW.

  21. SOMEBODY ASKED ME TO ELABORATE A BIT MORE ON ACTIVITY TRAP

    ON MY SHIP I DO NOT ALLOW PARASITES TO THRIVE.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2009/07/real-work-and-activity-traps-capt-ajit.html

    EVER SEEN A HAMSTER RUNNING UP AND WHEEL WHICH GOES ROUND AND ROUND . THERE ARE MANY SUCH HUMAN HAMSTERS OCCUPYING CHAIRS OF OFFICE MANAGERS

    The activity trap is the risk of becoming so busy with an activity as to forget what it is supposed to achieve. You lose sight of your goalpost. You climb up a ladder only to find out it is leaning against the wrong wall. It is the risk of becoming so busy with activity so as to forget and miss the aim of that activity

    The activity trap is the “tyranny of the mundane.” It includes the trivial issues, red tape, requests, and routine meaningless activities that eat up time and resources.

    The activity trap is the mistake of believing that endless activity is synonomous with results. Nothing could be further from the truth!

    Think for a moment about people you know. Some of them seem to be always busy but the results from their work are, well, meager. Others, may or may not seem busy but the results of their work are significant.

    ACTIVITY TRAPS are prized tools of incompetent managers – to foster their own job security. They shift goalposts to suit their agenda . 95% of the managers belong to this group. They do only things which gets measures and leave a good trail for personal faayada.

    This CUNT will attack the symptom and not tackle the problem. His derailed mind mistakes his own meaningless activity for achievement.

    They are endlessly involved in selfish personal brand building

    They can fool outsiders who see the activity but insiders have a hard time figuring out what they really produce.

    WHEN YOU ENTER ANY OFFICE YOU CAN SEE PEOPLE IN THE HALL PEERING INTO COMPUTERS-HOW MANY OF THEM ARE DOING REAL WORK

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/12/personal-branding-me-inc-capt-ajit.html

    In reality, uncontrolled activity is a trap and a gigantic source of insecurity. If you are continually consumed by a litany of routine activities, you are actually exposing yourself to obsolescence.

    Activity traps can lull us into a state of complacency and cause us to lose sight of our visions for the future

    Unless you know what activity traps who are mired in , you cannot build a firewall , to prevent it from taking over your work life

    Sometimes the people around you will want to make their urgent priority your priority too. If you allow this to happen it will eat into your finite reserve of time and resources..

    It’s difficult to manage your time when you constantly fall into the activity trap of responding to other peoples’ demands.. Don’t allow other peoples’ lack of time management affect yours.

      You have to manage your activities and not let them manage you. You need to be alert and vigilant as you take control of your own personal activity trap. Activity traps are ways of working that do not enable us to get the best from ourselves.

      When you are unable to prioritize your workload in a logical way, so that important tasks are completed you fall into activity traps. If you plan does not work, change the plan not your goal.

      People who get caught in the CHAKRAVYUH of activity traps get BURNT OUT. These people do NOT know the meaning of an exhilarating VICTORY LAP .

      How I love to take a victory lap in a hostile stadium

      IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW IF YOUR ARE COMING OR GOING WHITHOUT OPENING YOUR TIFFIN BOX

      I make a critical statement here – IF CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL HAD COMMANDED THE KARGIL WAR , I WOULD HAVE TAKEN ONLY 1% OF THE CASUALITY WE TOOK. I DON’T CARE FOR “YEH DIL MAANGE MORE” WHILE ATTACKING SOME ROCK HILLOCK.

      I ONCE DEMANDED A SYSTEM CHANGE IN MY SHORE OFFICE. I SAID— DECLARE WEDNESDAYS FREE OF EMAILS –LET CRITICAL MESSAGES COME FROM SHIP BY FAX .

      I RIDICULED , WE HAVE DEMENTED MONKEYS IN THE OFFICE WHO SIT BETWEEN A TELEX MACHINE AND A FAX MACHINE ( OF OLDEN TIMES ) , LOOKING ENDLESSLY FROM GANGA BAJOO TO JAMUNA BAJOOO PRETENDING TO BE WORKING HARD.

      I ASKED- CAN YOU LOAD AND UNLOAD CARGO THIS WAY? CAN YOU TAKE A SHIP FROM PORT A TO PORT B THIS WAY ?

      THIS SERVED THE PURPOSE OF KICKING THE BEE HIVE—THE ANGRY BEES DARED NOT STING CAPT VADAKAYIL
