I think you mean the FIRST of THREE cranes...India101....because the fourth one is for the 180 metre building and 3 cranes are for the India Tower as mentioned in the article....or Am I wrong

Hey buddy....I am sure you would agree Some sarcasms are harder to detect on the NET.....Cuz We don't see each other's faces....Even V-8ras wasn't sure as I presumed from his comment above.....Two things can be assumed from my reply to your "operator training" comment, either I was serious or I was also sarcastic, that's where the smileys come in, my every post has a smiley so not to hurt someone so people don't misunderstand me.....Also I wanted some humour in this thread........Back to the topic...xD

Yah, my comment was more in response to all the morons who keep asking if it's being built when clear evidence has been shown.

Oh I get it....You were bashing the dude who V-8ras was responding to........ who asked if they are building it even when there are pictures to prove it.

That was some clever sarcasm Sammy....Salute you man....Cuz when i saw that comment....I was like "Dude really???" and when V-8ras replied to him...I was like that should handle him....lol

...ummm...ok.

Anyways, now that the cranes are visible from Kamala Nehru Park in Malabar Hill (one of the most visited tourist sites in Bombay), I think it would be a good idea to crawl recent Flickr photos soon.

Yes, they would be visible from Marine Drive unless you are standing at a point where a building is obstructing your view.

But could you please go down to the site and get proper pics showing the foundations? I think I PMed you how to get good pics from a neighboring building a few months ago?
