Sterlite-My take, Ivy League, Future of cricket, கொலையும் செய்வா பொம்பளை

1) Rains are back in #Bangalore this week! Awesome Cool I tell you!!! 
2) I am glad the toll proposed on way to Bangalore Airport is still not in place. It will be a mess with cars piling up and people could miss the flight! I suggest the toll is added up to air ticket fare and paid back to BBMP! Common sense is not so common here!! What to do??

I am just astonished at the protest that have erupted over #Sterlite Issue and fuss that is created by Tamils in not highlighting the issue! I stumbled on some live TV show( Mom and Lalitha watch stupid Tamil channels once in a while) which the protesters were talking over the hat!! Also personally I had been to Sterlite, Tuticorin facility in 2016 June, to assess their performance for an independent assessment! Their performance is no worse or no better than any Indian mindset company (Agarwal, Sterlite may be UK Registered, but you can't take out the Indian thinking of cheap stuff our of Indian)! But to give credit to them, they do whatever they know right and wilful violations were next to nothing! I am glad some one has written a nice write up which came in Face book this morning, substantiating my view of all those who protest against the facility! My hunch is Sterlite being UK registered company,can not afford to bribe corrput politicians, pollution control board, NGO ( The last two are மலை முழுங்கி மஹாதேவன்ஸ்)! They can satisfy the need- but not the greed. Also you want growth, you want to take pains,as simple as that! I agree Industries too mess up and exploit community as is case in 95% Indian entities, (Including many MNCs as they say to me, If we want to come and follow European and US business norms, why the fuck we come here in the first place??) 

I'm Vishal Manikandan, son of Mr. B. Manikandan, who's working in IDT, Sterlite Copper since 1998. I'm a pursuing Chemical Engineer, specializing in Refining and Petrochemicals, from University of Petroleum & Energy Studies, Dehradun, India.
The protest has to mean something. But, what you all are doing is a blind action stimulated by an unclear motive. Let me jot down all the points laid down by you.
SOx Emissions: This is so damn well within the permissible limits. Earlier, ore benefaction processes, for sulphide ores it's Froth Flotation process, was not so advanced which led to high sulphide content in the pyrites. To tackle this, Sterlite had installed two sulphuric acid plants to deal with huge volumes of SO2. But, right now, the SO2 generation is very less, comparative to the start. So when the plant is expanded, both SAPs can be utilized maximum to convert SO2 to sulphuric acid. The conversion in the DCDA process is 99% and the rest 1% is removed through a process called scrubbing and thus the final emission level drops to PPM and sometimes even PPB. And you say this to be large emissions of SO2? And one thing to be noted is that, SO2 is not carcinogenic. Which means it doesn't cause cancer. So, the popular hype that revolves around, "Copper for you and Cancer for us?", is subtly false.
Arsenic and Heavy Metals: Every ore, be it be iron, copper, aluminum, has heavy metals in it. These heavy metals are removed by quenching the suspension and also by venturi flushing. At Sterlite, arsenic and heavy metals are removed in GCP and the water is treated in ETP to precipitate arsenic as cakes. These cakes are disposed in the government mandated methods of SLF as it is the best way to get rid of these wastes. Sterlite is doing the same! And that bothers you?
Waste Water Discharge: I laughed like hell when I saw videos with hastag "Ban Sterlite". Sterlite disposes wastewater into the agricultural lands? Come on! If you know, Sterlite has ZLD (Zero Liquid Discharge) which means no water leaves the plant. It's reused within. You guys, without knowing it, create videos faltering an actual fact!
Environment Sensitive Zoning: Yes, Sterlite is within the environment sensitive zone of Gulf of Mannar. But, every industry which has to be located irrevocably in this region are mandated some rules and guidelines. You can check this with PCB and NEERI. Sterlite Copper has adopted those guidelines and that's the reason why Supreme Court rejected the plea to ban this industry. You guys just don't know this!
If you're so concerned about all these facts, of how did I know this, I was an Inplant Trainee and Project Intern at Sterlite Copper. I had worked in these plants and that's the reason I'm confident with the facts. I can point out many other factors and much more. But it will prove to be unethical.
Look before you leap! Understand what really happens and know what you're doing. You think people working there will want others to suffer? Don't you have that simple thought?
My father is working there for twenty years. And I worked there. How come we didn't suffer anything? Just don't be blind to false accusations. Money can do anything. It can buy you, too. Wake up and don't let the lies consume you.
Edit: Since everyone was asking about the fine which was imposed, I'm doing this edit. The company was fined because the calibration of the emission monitors were slightly out of change. The company justified this properly with apt explanations.

As Ivy league admissions to universities come to close for the academics of 2018-19, I wonder the Indian system that gave few bright students with all round performance of Academics, Independent thinking, extra curricular activities, innovation etc is unable to overcome the international competition, perception of Indian education hitting a rut thus not able to crack the Code! I wonder such article seeds the perception that Indian universities have hit dirt! Wonder??? 

It was interesting to watch the discussion during lunch on 4th day on future of test Cricket!! New thoughts, concepts!! But I wonder the toothless ICC would take note and do anything!! I like concept of No field restrictions, bowler over restricting in 1 day and tests to be made more entertaining. I am also for 4 day cricket with 100 overs each with day/ night sprinkled in. What was also interesting was 2 South African, 1 West Indian, 1 Australian, 1 English all routed for West Indians as all time favourite cricketer!! Mark Nicholos-Sobers, Warne -Viv Richards, Shaun Pollock-Malcom Marshall, Michael Holding- Lawrence Rowe(My all time favourite too) Greame Smith- Brian Lara!! So much the WI of 80s, 90s influenced game. Did they ever sledge? Behave badly?? Never!! Give a view!
கொலையும் செய்வா பொம்பளை !! Haahahha! Don't believe me! (Women can do a murder if required) watch this! My guess that this is in Turkish area in Germany!! hahah!!

I leave you with some funny images and videos that deluge me !! ahhah Enjoy!

Husbands I tell you!! Ask Sports?? Then see???? 
If Inda allows Guns as much as USA then Indian women would be like this??? hahahahahh!!!

hhahahahh! Guys give royally to MODI!! heheheheh!!!! 

Take it easy, take care, stay safe, god bless
