Chinese make light of Indian bore-hole rescue in 2-hour flat

Tue, Apr 05, 2016, 12:51 PM
What is the difference between the Indians and the Chinese? The Chinese think practically, the Indians make a big hallabaloo but don't think practically.

Take the 2-year-old boy who fell into a borewell pit 90 metres deep in equally unsafe circumstances as in India, wherein the newly sunk bore is kept open.

The difference comes in now. Local people gather. They send in oxygen by pipe ensuring the boy in the pit has got the idea, that something is being done about him. After oxygen, the efforts to bring up the boy are taken. Ropes are sent in ensuring the boy hangs onto them.

The measure of the ropes is kept in such a way that the boy prepares a seat for himself to be pulled up. After gaining confidence that the boy is comfortable, slowly the ropes are pulled up, little by little, so the boy is not discomfited in any way.

Hands are already up to grab the boy once he is visible. And he is grabbed up in a condition in which he is drowsy. The mother comes forward to pick up the boy.

The Chinese boy is rescued in 2 hours flat.

Take the case of Indian rescue, procliners and earth movers are brought in, the whole thing is dug up, days and nights are wasted. By the time the bottom is reached, the boy is invariably dead. In India's case, it is pyrrhic rescue, while in China it is successful rescue.

You can't think of oxygen tube, the vital ingredient for life? Then what do you think?
