You are assuming it can be built in-house.

If one would have to make a choice regarding what to build in-house, I would rather build butter and guns than statues.

No think about it, in a country like ours where massive temples are carved out from stones, why a mere statue cannot be built.

yes we can build guns but where is the skill development in that.

I guess the common issue all over the world is 'We can do it, but the Chinese can do it cheaper'.

Although I agree, SoU should be an all Indian affair, otherwise there is little point. It loses a lot of significance if the bottom is labeled 'Made in China'

Can that be considered efficient?

No skill development in building guns? Most countries benefit enormously from the investments done by govt in programs like defense, space etc. the experience in building them involve spin-off's that help civilian sector.

Building high-speed ships for navy for example can be leveraged to say build ferries to transport people and vehicles.

Building the statue does involve technology but the spin-off's may be limited to building other similar statues.

We should raise our voice... If Statue of Unity is constructed abroad then it doesn't serve any purpose other than just being a statue.. The 'connection' with the project will be lost.. Seriously, sometimes I feel that the people in power don't even have basic common sense.. We should do something.. some petition or so.. but before that need more information about this issue..

No the thing is Chinese can do it better. You have to agree the output quality of Chinese products are far better and aesthetically appealing than Indian ones. Which is why we need to teach people how to produce better things that are quality, robust, and aesthetically appealing.

Interesting to note that the 5th urban agglomeration (after Ahmedabad, Surat, Baroda and Rajkot) in Gujarat to reach 1 million will not be Bhavnagar, not Jamnagar, not Junagadh but Vapi (which is 20th on the list of biggest cities by itself)!

Vapi urban agglomeration which is an urban belt consisting of the towns of Daman, Ringanwada, Vapi, Dadra, Silvassa and Karad has an estimated combined population of just over 1 million. This is a 70 km continuous urban belt with big industrial clusters.

This is the approximate population breakup of the UA:

Daman 3,06,367
Vapi 2,69,116
D&N 4,03,346
----------------
Total 9,78,829
