TRIUMPH FOR ANNA HAZARE --
TRIUMPH OF WE THE INDIAN PEOPLE, THE CONSTITUTION AND ITS WATCH
KEEPERS, THE PARLIAMENT--
The whole world has been watching us over the past 2 weeks.
Yes India stands tall.
My memories go back to the year 1980. I was a young strapping Chief Mate of the SCI ship Vishwa Ajay. It was a fantastic multipurpose ship, made in Warnemunde. It could do 25 knots, had huge jumbo derricks, was fully automated , and could make profit on a voyage by just carrying refrigerated cargo, or vegetable oils in deep tanks.
But it had a serious problem. All six sister A class ships had stability problems. By the time I joined Vishwa Ajay, 3 of the sister ships had angle off loll and became unstable with huge list. In fact just as I joined Vishwa Amitabh has a angle of loll in-- hold your breath--Bombay lock gates. The first two ships one of them was Vishwa Aditya had angle of loll while taking to the blocks at dry docks.
We were due for dry docks and the ship was discharging at Hamburg, just before dry docking at HDW dry dock. I was given instructions NOT to discharge hold no 1 , which contained coffee beans in bags. This was to bring the trim down from 20 feet to a reasonable 4 feet.
As soon as the Tech Suptd came from SCI Bombay, I told him to arrange for a meeting with the drydock bosses. I had to bypass the Captain who had come up from the ranks and had zilch understanding of stability ( no names ) --his nick name was fuck-knows-step*#$&se--I can see many of you smiling wryly already.
The German yard bosses came , quite qualified and intelligent men. I told them " I want to avoid dry docking in a graving dock with coffee beans in No 1 hold, as the quality will get deteriorated with paint spray , lack of ventilation etc. Is it possible for the ship to dry-dock at that HDW floating dry dock."
I took them to the porthole and pointed it out. "The idea is to reduce the virtual loss of GM due to upthrust while taking the aft most block, at nearly 16 feet of trim".
They did NOT understand , so I had to go to the blackboard and explain with formulas and diagrams. Where the dry dock would be trimmed , so that the difference between the trims of dock blocks and the ship's keel would be just 4 feet.
Suddenly the hull side young boss said " Yes, Chief , I have studied ship stability , I know what you mean. I will give you the answer tomorrow PM !. Meanwhile congratulations-- You may be knowing that such an attempt will be the FIRST on this planet"
Later at night, we had gone out to Reeperbahn ( St Pauli ) and while having a couple beers , my junior officer said " Saab, I have heard of you from your batch mates. Your nick-name as a cadet was Mr India , right?. Half of it was because of your muscles and the other half for always saying again and again that India would be world's No 1 super-power country by 2020, and that Brazil would be No 2. Saab, today you made me proud of being an Indian . The highly qualified Germans were in awe of you. "
I laughed it off " Only if India can root out corruption-- and Brazilians think sex , booze and music ain't everything!"
Of course, we did the docking after 3 days on a floating HDW Hamburg dry dock, with entire cargo discharged --and the dry dock trimmed .
When the ship sat on the blocks , I as the Chief Officer sat in the control room of the shore dry dock. Any problems, with dock trimming / ballasting and I would abort, before the floating dry dock and the ship capsized in the water-- a terrible disaster to imagine .
To calculate virtual loss of GM :-
P= t X MCTC/ LCF ( t is trim in cms )
virtual loss of GM= PX KM/W ( where W is displacement in tonnes )
Not many people realise that KM reduces with trim. This is why the 3 A class ships had angle of loll.
I had made sure of the fluid GM of W =Vishwa Ajay by shifting the heavy jumbo boom suddenly, and measuring the period of roll with a stop watch --and averaged it over 5 attempts.
Square root of GM ( feet ) = 0.44 X (breadth in feet / Time period of roll in seconds) .
Many years later Vishwa Anuraag and Vishwa Apurva would sink at sea.
Another 9 years before we get to 2020. Corrupt Indians have stashed away 3 TRILLION US dollars of slush money in foreign banks and lockers ( gold/ diamonds ) -- Swiss banks have 1.8 trillion of this.money in currency alone"
Anna Hazare had given hope to 1.2 billion Indians who are sick and tired of rampant, brazen corruption. Where the nation's prime minister Manmohan Singh declares that his hands are tied due to compulsions of coalition politics, and that he does NOT have a magic wand . But he had a magic wand when he and Sonia Gandhi capitulated to the west over India's nuclear sovereignty.
Well we have a magic wand in Anna, and this 74 year old man's hands are NOT tied!
I must strike a word of caution, here. A lot of NGOs' are corrupt. I can vouch for this.
Most of the foreign enemies of India use local NGOs' to push their agenda using heavy money. A lot of NGOs' are just agents of corruption. First probe the NGO units of Kiran Bedi whose main thrust was to score brownie points for herself, and Kejriwal (who has yet to learn the art of negotiations).
Rothschild owned Christian organizations like MORMONS are infiltrating India. Mormons bribe NGOs' heavily to push their agenda. . Exactly how drug running Rothschild owned East India company infiltrated India and took over the country and made us slaves.
Anna Hazare must not be hijacked by Kejriwal and party. NGOs' must be audited under Jan Lokpal. This is a huge conspiracy. Rather Indian Govt should ban Mormons. Punch into Google search MORMONS BANKROLLED BY ROTHSCHILD-VADAKAYIL.
Has anybody ever wondered from where Naxalites and Assam rebels get their money, to pay salary to their cadres?
And we don't want "crane" nay "Akali sword" nay "ghoonghat" nay Kiran-- Bedi playing SUPER COP patronising the public, and playing to the gallery.
In July 1994, Kiran Bedi, the then Inspector-General of Prisons of Tihar Jail was pulled up by the Supreme court of India ignoring the apex court directives for providing PARTIAL AID to a foreign under-trial prisoner by initiating contempt proceedings against her. She escaped from punishment despite being heavily reprimanded, in view of her winning the Rothschild sponsored Magsasay Award, the court exonerating her from further proceedings. Rather, it was the other way around.
Poor Rahul Gandhi has screwed it up with poor timing and reading out a pathetic political speech from paper ( probably written by Mani Shanker Aiyar ). Varun Gandhi upstaged him royally by speaking extempore from the heart -- bearing in mind "THE WILL OF, WE ,THE PEOPLE".
Amitabh Bachchan got his first Bollywood role and first National award on written orders of Indira Gandhi. This letter scan is on the internet.
Above -- Amar Singh ( rolling in hundreds of embezelled crores, and on whose neck the guillotine will soon fall ) with his beloved brother and his "ONLY daughter-in-law" --sniff !! They all deserve each other.
And to all the MPs's in parliament who got hoppin' mad at Om Puri, for telling that lot of them are uneducated and of low IQ. Truth is bitter, ladies and gentlemen . An apple never falls far from the tree. Nowadays like Bollywood sons and daughters we have a similar MPs's sons and daughters shoved down our hapless throats.
NO MORE SLAM DUNKING OF CORRUPT DEALS, BY ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES OF PEOPLE, IN A BRAZEN, "CATCH ME IF YOU CAN" MANNER.
There are times in life , when you have to stop being a fence sitter , take a firm stand, and be an Indian who loves his country-- to hell with all other bullshit roles.
CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL
