Very weird tower. India should take care about their people
here in the netherlands they ask to donate money to help poor people in India
and they are building one of the most expensive and sickest building.. strange world.

Hmm weird people right?
Just donate money and do not give people a chance to work and earn money? Is that the way to eliminate poverty?

This "most expensive and sickest" building will also generate employment before and AFTER it is built.

But donating money is soo much easier I guess?

how many times do we have to spell out its the Indian PRIVATE sector


or do you want India to go all commie and take over every private entity?


If anything the taxes this deal generates enriched government coffers and employs many people.

India has poor people it does not mean it stops building everything which requires capital.. if you don't build and grow then how do you remove poverty ??

BTW it is being built by a private company which will generate employment and revenues for the government .. I guess this is how capitalism works !!

ANd you are dutch ... , do you think when the dutch were building beautiful buildings in Amsterdam then all the dutch were rich or let's talk about teh dutch colonies which along with the Belgian colonies were one of the most brutally ruled ?? Cmmon man don't take the skeletons out of your cupboard ... If you have concerns say it .. don't blame by thinking you are on a higher "moral" ground !!

there wont be too many updates until construction reaches ground level or so i presume. the location is such that many mumbai forumers would not travel so far to south mumbai to see a big hole (thats not what she said).
Anyways we've had a fantastic update from India101 reagrding the progress of this bulding. go a few pages back and you shall see the progress of this tower. cheers

A completely valid point. The more construction projects that Indians pursue, the more these projects will help raise the standard of living in India. China is already a good example of this, and their standard of living has been rising very fast.
