Robert (and Graham),

What was the main purpose of the trip to India? Was it to investigate legends of a sunken complex and determine whether or not one really exists, or was it to generate worldwide publicity for someone who has a book out on the market? I understand that Graham was instrumental in organizing the dive and in getting the various groups involved, and he should be proud of his accomplishments, but I don't believe that his first post describing the initial conclusions of the dive should concentrate so much on the fact that his name was not mentioned in the media release. It seems that he cares much more about the omission of his name than the details of the find, which may show where his true interests lie. I am not saying that Graham should not get credit for the work he has done, that is absurd. All I am saying is that there may be a valid reason for the omission, one that may actually be in Graham's long term interests in terms of continuing the study of the area. I know that politics are ALWAYS involved, just look at the situation in Egypt (Gantenbrink, etc.) Maybe they want to initially play down the fact that it was an Englishman that was almost entirely responsible for the discovery and expedition in India, until a later date? I don't know. I just thought it was poor form to begin complaining at such an early (and incredibly important) point in the whole process. But what do I know?

sincerely,
fisherman
