Are you stupid or something? Have I said anything negative about India in this thread? Would you like me to start?

There are a lot of negatives about India, but also a lot of positives, so if you want to start a fight with me you are more than welcome to.

I see a skeleton crew of maybe 15-20 workers on this site. You can't possibly believe this building will be finished by the end of the decade at this rate.

It's kind of hard to ignore when it's at the end of every other post.

Your second line doesn't make any sense.

Your looking only at one part of the site.

There was easily about 200 workers at the site that day.

I didn't go the the construction site to take pictures of men working, I was was more focused on the foundations.

But if you look at Desiguys pics from Dec you can see plenty of workers in all corners of the site.

No view of the construction site but at least we know there is some concrete being used. Better than nothing. Thanks.
