    If the memorial is on sea people will see it in small batches in boats about 6 months an year... but if it is put in central suburbs or Navi Mumbai then - lacs of people can gather to see it at same time all year. It will be a great and inspirational rallying point for political and religious gatherings as well.

    waste of money, do something more relevant rather than glorifying the past. We have more productive investments/expenditure that are on hold for a lack of interest from political section.
