    Yes, really really bad news...we're not in a good position as far as our submarine fleet is concerned, with the Scorpene delays and all...and now this !! INS Sindhurakshak maybe beyond repair, the other one can be repaired I think.

    That is sheer carelessness and lack of responsibility. It is clearly security breach if non state actor are involved to have a fire like that such as the whole submarine is gutted.

    There seem to be a lot of people having knee jerk reactions on what caused this tragedy.Already we have judgements being made on who is to blame. Wait until things have calmed down and an investigation is under way before pointing the finger.

    You can replace the submarine,you can't replace the lives lost!

    The issue cannot be taken so lightly as you think. The value of a strategic assets is diminished and on top of that precious soldiers lives.

    If we wait for GoI to respond with enquiry it will take months if not years by the time this whole incident would be brushed aside as something else would have popped up.
