They should not be just left there, as sighting them could cause false alarms and unnecessary rescue operations. Whether it is practical, though, in every rescue operation, to deal properly with them I don't know.

Dear Unoczar,

Coming from you this is a very big compliment.

Your North India trip travelogue is one of the best travelogue I have read anywhere.

Take a bow, master.

Hey Dhiraj, indeed a shocking ordeal but pleased to know that all of you were safe , I am myself a captain and have undergone a fire at sea, albeit on a loaded gas tanker, which we fought safely and without any injuries to the crew. I can understand the trauma which happens after the incident and what a great team work and excellent leadership skills shown by the captain.
Cheers

Dhiraj - wow man! what an experience and a very fitting narration. It reminded me of Clive cussler novels - with Dirk Pitt.

Luckily your post bumped up the thread and I came across it. To continue sailing after this experience and your family letting you sail - is just amazing.

Hats off!

Any producers around here willing to make a movie out of this?

Titanic had its share in Hollywood and this story by Deky seems to as legit as it can get for a Bollywood movie.

Classic narration and writing. Rated five stars.

Hi Decky,
last night was searching for threads on Tibet, and read through your road trip there, found some references about your travelogue to fjords. Liked your style so searched up your handle for threads started by you. And ended up reading this one. Also realized that I had already read up your travelogue about the MEA trek to Kailash few years back. Wow man, great nice, so what are up to nowadays, would like to meet up with you any time I happen to be passing close by to you!
