this is the right time when Pak should attack india....they are undertrained, over-confident. india will loose half its planes/ships in accidents in any war with Pakistan.

Shiv how you are allowing such Anti India comments on your forum? It has never happened before.

Shiv, It is sad this rotten and idiotic neighbourhood moron is posting such foolish jingoist comments in your forum and when someone replies u convieniently delete his posts. These people suffer from amnesia that only recently americans hunted down osama in their backyard and some jihadis attacked their naval base and took out their AWACS and they always are itching to fight us even when they cant keep their house in order . So much for such wet dreams .

What is the purpose of holding those sticks in their hands. Just looks stupid.

Cujo

They should do away with those sticks which look good in the hands of a colonial military sahib and not in the hands of officers of an independent country.
Btw, VA A.Chopra should control his weight. He looks like "Pappu Pager".

Whats the significance of the black uniform ??
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought only submariners & Armoured corp personnel (in Army ofcourse) have all-black uniforms among the Services.

@ 11:29 PM....you made me laugh. Thats right probably thats the reason why so many indian ships are sinking at sea.

Sorry to say the sea harriers are counting their last days. 19 of the original 30 jump jets have crashed and remaining 11 ones will also make it to the watery grave joining osama. Don't delete this comment not a porkistani but a true Indian.

The black uniform is non-standard. Specially designed by the chief for himself, most likely.

Dear Anonymous 6:49 and 6:51,
Good to hear such old school thinking is still alive. It was the same thought of an under-prepared and vulnerable India that gave us 1948, 1965 and 1999 (1971 had us slightly better prepared). I needn't explain further, rest I leave it to the perception/version of history you are familiar with. And as far as Virat is concerned, its gonna retire in 2016. The true capability and future of Indian navy is better represented by INS Vikramaditya, Kolkata, Talwar and Shivalik class than this picture you see.

Admiral is wearing black overall because he is from submarine wing of the Navy.

Perhaps blogger should not allow anonymous comments (like myself). I know of forums who don't allow members who don't have paid email accounts. Yahoo, gmail, hotmail etc. don't cut it. Keeps the riff raff and hate/war mongers out.

Hi, comments are no longer moderated. I had done this since I hadn't had the time to moderate comments several times a day. Do I need to switch moderation back on?

Why is that Pakistanis harp about Indian defence accidents? Have they forgotten we took 93000 of their coward soldiers as PoWs & their government had to beg them back. A single Indian destroyer (Rajupt/Delhi class) is enough to annihilate entire Pakistan...bloody radical morons!

@Shiv In my opinion kindly revert back to the system of moderator. At least we will not see any of those insane and absurd comments in your blog. People all across the globe are following your blog. They certainly won't like to see any crap on your website. Rest you decide.

Shiv Aroor said...

And. Back to comment moderation.

looks like bloody noses on both sides...more on indian side though.

Shiv,

You can definitely moderate as its your blog. However, most reknowned bloggers worldwide prefer non-moderated comments. Its only Indian bloggers I see moderating everything.

The fact is that trolls grow if you feed them. If you ignore or delete their comments outright, they learn to behave in future.

Barring abuses and fanatic comments, I guess you should let your followers decide whether they want to behave like mature, grown up discussants or teenage fanatics.

Rest is your discretion.
Thanks

Shiv Aroor said...

Kris: Point taken, and I agree. Have lifted moderation. Will make time to delete offensive and objectionable posts if necessary.

@Shiv
We learn a lot even from what our enemies/critics think about us. Comments must be moderated only if they are abusive. Only people with low self esteem take offense to criticism.

bravo....makes sense

Agree with the last comment. Internet attacks is all these poor guys can do. Relax and enjoy their frustration.
