@ijaypalsingh
oh-thats a huge fall.
I thought you might have fallen down somewhere in the cabin-fall from stairway -something similar to. But this one is worst - But definitely you are lucky to escape with minimum damage. God wants you to acquire more and more ships in future-bigger and bigger -panamax,suezmax, capesize etc etc??

AIDINI -hmm..Indian settled in Norway or ...?

Capt you were really lucky. Years ago I was once told that only fools and seagulls dont wear safety belts. Had you fallen face down or hurt your head while falling down, can't help the thought but you might have 'cros't the bar'
Stay safe

Yes, I have already asked one of my friends to search for some photgraphs of jala ships. Everybody seems busy now hence there may be
some delay in getting it. Shall let you know.

Since I was holding to the sill of open window, I did not find it necessary to put a safety belt . Moving sideways I put my hand on wet paint & in reflex movement lost balance and fell all way down on metal deck (my fall is marked by arrow). There is another two meters after the end of arrow point. By sheer grace of god, I did not hurt my head or fell face down, which happens mostly in such cases. Was rushed to hospital where the swelling gave an impression of cracked or broken bones but UST & X-ray revealed nicer skeleton . I had to stay in hospital for one week in Brazil & now am recuperating at home in Mumbai.
The TEAM-BHP bug has also bitten my PA Lareina, who is more frequent on visiting to T-BHP. I dont know if you have any female BHpian but be ready for a spanish nut-head girl to join you soon.
I'll be going back to Norway next week & will stay there till year end. This is the fifth ship & my own commitment of taking my fleet to five ships within Q1 stands fulfilled. Now we'll lay low & see the trend of business for next one year & then plan for future expansion of fleet.

Glad you recovered well sir .
I see in the last pic you have two boats in the davit . what sort of boats are these?I am asking because we have workboats on the davit so was curious what boat is that .
Anyways best of luck for norway . Even i am heading to bergen in next month or so. Its summers in north sea,we better do some exploration.

@vijaypalsingh

Thanks for the photgraphs of some of the JALA ships.
There are still the biggies like JALA VIJAYA, JALA VIHAR, Narottam Morarjee (this ship was sold to Continental shipping and renamed as Continental Lotus)..?

Do you have the photographs of these three ships?

Hi,

You have hit the nail on head. You have earned a visit to one of my ships whenever they are in Mumbai next time. Sorry cannot arrange for you to sail though.

Rgds,

Hi VPS,

Thank you. For a one way deal that too made in jest, your response is indeed very generous.

Will look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Friends,

Was in India for couple of days & had the chance to visit this training site.These are Diamond aircraft's (Canada), custom made for the training purpose only. They are four (cramped) seater. In fact cockit has only 60% of Maruti 800's cabin space. The engineers were doing routine service of the one the aircraft's engine & I got this chance to snap it up. (I had to do some crude job of hiding "SENSITIVE" places, persons etc. Pls bear with me.
