I think the fair thing to do....is place this thread "ON HOLD DUE TO MONSOON" or something, because the work is not going at full force....also, we won't have forumers complaining like in the recent posts for another 3 months. The thread won't attract garbage for another 3 months unless something miraculous happens...lol

I think this 'monsoon' excuse is just lame. Is the monsoon in Bombay or for that matter in India, is special that construction activities has to be delayed for a few months of the year? I think not. There is no evidence that the rainy weather perod in India is more severe than the equivalent season in other tropical countries, like Malaysia, Singapore etc. In South China, Vietnam, Phillipines etc, there is the typhoon season, and yet we do not really see projects being held up for months due to inclement weather.

I think this project is definately going nowhere at this stage. Perhaps it is due to bureaucratic red-tape that is especially problematic in India, and also problems in acquiring massive finance backing required for such project.

I am sure flooding is a big problem in parts of India during the monsoon. However, such situation is not peculiar to India only.

Well no matter what other countries face this problem...This is about India Tower not being able to rise because of flooding...Thats the only reason right now....I think its completely fair to go on hold (or low power so I don't piss off the others...) because of the condition of Monsoon...Its like trying to build a tower made of cards in the ocean.

I just want to see SOME sort of progress. The building is so interesting in it's design that watching it grow will be fantastic. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

because people cannot shut up :

Avg June July Aug Rainfall in Mumbai (mm) - 500 mm , 600mm , 350 mm
Avg rainfall in Singapore (mm) Jun-July-Aug = 161mm, 158mm , 176mm ... you can check any city u want

I am not trying to justify why it is so slow , I would love to see real fast work and this tower get build asap .. but people who have no knowledge of any area should not open make judgements , Monsoons area crazy in Mumbai and virtually no construction works takes place , especially foundation work which has the risk of flooding as mumbai is build by landfilling and has very very high water table !!!

I hope in August we start seeing much more faster work !!

So in China and the Philippines work continues on a tower when there is a typhoon? We must learn what they are doing.

I thought this tower was not going anywhere so today I went and looked for myself ! Through the monsoon I could at last see it rising to maybe ??? at least 50 levels by now??? would that be right...a rough guess.

So what's gonna happen next year (or more likely 2 years from now) when it's monsoon season again and this thing is above ground?

This thread is a global joke. It should be locked temporarily. At least until we see real updates,and visible progress.

Mr. Administrator, lock down this thread!

The PYONGYANG - Ryugyong Hotel thread was locked once for similar reasons. Just BS, and OT 24/7... The funny/ridiculous thing is we can see updates and progress more often there then here. Don't forget, we are talking about a sealed off country in that case.
