That can't be an Indian submarine.

There aren't 1000 people standing on the hull.

Rabid Badger Beaver Weasel: The 18 who died where trapped after the explosion and fire. Sad day to be a submariner, no matter what country.

Shakespeare's Monkey: JohnCarter: It is an actual submarine..who knew

Well, it's more of an ex submarine now.

It's still underwater, so technically it's still sub-marine.

gfid: I don't even now what a raksasha is who who Darren McGavin is either, but I was entertained.

Darren McGavin (the dad from the movie "A Christmas Story") played the character Carl Kolchak in the 1970's TV horror series "Kolchak: The Night Stalker".   One of the episodes involved a shape-shifting Hindu demon called a 'rakshasa'.  In that episode, he kills the rakshasa, who appears to him to be the elderly advice columnist from his work, with a crossbow bolt.

We should offer our assistance. It would really curry some favor with India.

Last year, India acquired a Russian Nerpa nuclear submarine for its navy on a 10-year lease from Russia at a total cost of nearly $1 billion.

On Saturday, India activated the atomic reactor on its first indigenously designed and built nuclear submarine, which the navy could deploy in the next two years.

Mmmhmmm... Sounds like they only needed a 1-year lease to copy all that Russian tech over.

It was docked and they couldn't keep it from sinking? Don't they have ropes in India?

It's a Kilo class boat.

Sounds like a battery fire (relatively common hazard on diesel/electric boats), followed by some of the torpedoes cooking off.  Either that, or torpedo fuel ignited, which subsequently cooked off the warheards.

Also, there is a remote possibility that a raksasha was attacking zombie Darren McGavin, and he fired a crossbow bolt shorted out the high voltage bus on the main electrical switch panel, which then sparked and ignited the pure ethanol the chief of the boat had stashed back behind the panel for "medicinal purposes".  But that's a remote possibility.
