first of all i apologise on behalf NIO and i am honestly ashamed of being an indian. i would like to emphasise here that NIO would not have got the fund to dive at mahabalipuram for many reasons if you were not there to initiate the things. neither the Government nor the organisations in India are interested in such research nor they regard a fellow indian's discovery if indeed it was discovered solely by them. i do not have the Underworld book at the moment to quote the page no, i do remember, you had to tune every stone to get the permission to dive at Dwaraka and at poompuhar during your previous expedition, inspite of the fact that the so called discovery of "dwaraka, underwater city" was lying in the form of reports for many years and none of indian press nor the Government have bothered about that. also, one of the NIO staff estimated the expected fund to continue the research (this recent expedition which you have just now completed), and told you to arrange for funds. i just wish he could remember that incident atleast. in the year 2000 they announced another discovery about dwaraka, but even that announcement/discovery was indirectly because of your involvement in this issue. i am sorry for their behaviour.
it is a shame really.
this para is regarding your second comment. it is a common mistake that indians make that they do not worry about the accuracy of information, nor they worry about checking things before they announce. they have the habit of reannouncing statements and do not bother about the image it will get them. all they worry is becoming popular.
honestly i am sorry for such thing. as an indian, and as a tamilian, i apologise for such a mistake.
i can try whatever i can do to correct this, but i do know whether i can do anything useful. i am going to try my best i can.
i am sorry again.
