Objections/comments/suggestions for Setu Channel Committee
Encyclopedia Brittanica, published from USA in 2002, mentions on page 88 that dredging of ram Sethu was started in 1838 by the British rulers. It was abandoned due to the high cost.
It further mentions that at that time the depth of water on the sethu was not more than 4′.
This information should set the frame of reference for the biased Committee (assuming that it is serious about inquiring and the search for truth).
We hope the Setu Channel Committee will receive submissions (before 31 Oct. 2007) from concerned citizens on many topics. Some topics suggest themselves, 39 (word docs.) + 23 (pdf docs), a total of 62 topics.
http://www.slideshare.net/kalyan97/ramasetu28sept2007/ (23 mb)This provides an overview of the topics on 73 powerpoint slides.
For the indicative list of 62 topics, 39 word document sets have been compiled – in 8 downloadable sets and also in 23 pdf format docs.
A CD containing all the documents on 62 topics is also available; please provide the snail-mail address in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for getting a copy of the CD immediately.
All of these docs related to 62 topics, are available for download, edit as deemed appropriate and for submission to the Committee on or before 31 October 2007 (2811 pages):
