indian express: 'dravidians' fiddle, india burns
the sethusamudram project is a 'dravidian' thing for that exercrable t. baalu, who is a hindu-hater. he once told a christian fundamentalist audience that he was ashamed to have been born a hindu.
the idea is multifold: a. destroy the ancient rama's bridge from the mahabharata times
b. give his pet port in tuticorin a boost. incidentally, for this purpose, he recently axed the proposal for a deep-water container terminal at vizhinjam, trivandrum. this container port would have competed with tuticorin, which is a minor port. vizhinjam, with 56 feet depth near shore -- this is the highest draught available on the west coast, even greater than karwar, where the new indian naval station is -- would have been able to capture a lot of the container ships that now go to colombo or to singapore since they cannot be docked in india, and the containers are then transferred to smaller ships that can dock in southern india.
these dmk types will destroy india for the momentary glory of some obscure part of tamil nadu. they cannot see beyond narrow-minded tamil concerns. of course, baalu will be happy to be a christian tamil, if he's not already one. like most of the tamil tiger leaders are too: velupillai prabhakaran, methodist. anton balasingham, catholic. and so on.
