The author's study of Rama Setu covers all the aspects of historical, economics, environmental and national security of the Sethusamudram Ship Channel Project. He opposes the rupture of Rama Setu, to dredge out a seabed furrow in the Palk Strait and Gulf of Mannar. He terms the Project (SSCP) as a financial white elephant. he argues that in choosing to design the SSCP based on destructive channel route, the Government, has betrayed our ancient civilization and Sanatan Dharma. The legendary bridge of coral reefs and rocks was built, according to the Ramayana. Hence, the author argues that it is essential now to set up an independent multidisciplinary investigative committee of experts to rectify this serious lapse on part of the Government.
