Todays update by Coolguyz. It coming to July, when the monsoon is at it's strongest, but work is still continuing on India Tower. He said -

It's raining cats and dogs. But work is happening under the blue sheets. Also some strange type of black tubes were lying near site office.

You believe that the concrete can dry in these conditions?

Obviously not when it's raining. But the project has been at the same point for the past two months. Monsoons just started so whats your excuse for unproductivety? Perhaps its time some of the Indian forumers get off their high horses and admit that this project at the moment is very, very stale.

Though this thread is very very stale, there are still over 100 pages, which proves to be a rich productivety of unreasonable indian styled boast. Lol

If you were following this thread, you might have also read about the Government issuing a stop order for this project because the WAKF board filed a petition saying the land on which it has been built has irregularities. This is a minor issue. But work WILL stop when the Government issues a diktat like that. If that wasn't all, this coincided with the 2G scam. Then, the monsoons arrived. So, this will remain in limbo until August September whens the rains recede. We should start worrying if this remains the same even after that.

And someone wrote about this being a "storm". Well its not. Its four months of rains. This is not a 2 hour thunderstorm.

Hey man, whats your ******* problem? Why do you have to be such a dick?

Even if this is an online forum and when they keep banning you and you keep coming back with some new id's, doesn't mean you have the right to go ahead and rant stupid shit with new id's and people aren't going to say anything to you. Why don't you be like other forumers who follow the thread peacefully and input only when you have something important?

Ahhh....Don't worry mclaurenshen.....We can handle that by ourselves.....What you are doing is not bringing "fun" into this thread...you are creating frustration with the others....

Well, you know what? Don't try to create fun, we can do that ourselves. Your style of fun is not welcomed. Its repetitive and plain boring. So again, if you don't have any constructive thing to say, then please don't input your invaluable comments.

There is not a single shred of evidence to show any progress of any sort. There has been no progress for over 2 months.....

That's exactly what I'm saying.

I do in fact follow this thread quite attentively and I adore this project. I am however a realist. I'm not saying it's canceled, never did. What I'm saying is people need to stop saying its U/C when we are clearly in an On Hold situation. Look back at the last 10 pictures and 20 pages of post. No progress but people saying look here's a 2 month old picture, it's still going!

Let's put this sucker under On Hold and hope to see some progress by September.

My issue was that fellow forumer Coolguyz who did take the picture a few days ago said that "work was underway" at the site. At the current stage of construction, it is futile to look for signs of progress because work if any is going on will go on at snails pace. From what I know about Coolguyz, he will clearly have mentioned that "there is no activity" on the site if that was the case. He didnt.

And I dont think he did so because he wanted this to remain this thread in the "U/C" section. I mean he didn't even post the picture in this thread.

Also, as if we changing the thread to the on hold section or back to the UC section when we "see" any progress is going to change the ground realities!
