Unravelling Bhakra

Unravelling Bhakra SHRIPAD DHARMADHIKARY AVaidyanathan


A Vaidyanathans review of our study of the Bhakra project (Flawed Critique of Bhakra, December 3, 2005) questions some of our basic findings on the grounds of several serious flaws in the use of data and the methodology of estimation. We feel that the arguments and figures presented by the reviewer do not establish the said serious flaws and hence, cannot make our findings unconvincing or untenable. We would like to engage with the review in the spirit of taking forward the debate and discussion.
