Dawood’s personal deputy became arch-rival Chhota Rajan, thug-turned-politician Arun Gawli, Amar (Raavan) Naik and his engineer brother Ashwin Naik, and a bunch of different characters, large and small, stroll the pages of this compelling historical past of the Maharashtrian mobsters who have been as soon as dubbed ‘amchi muley’, ‘our boys’, by means of Shiv Sena leader Bal Thackeray. both attention-grabbing are the tales of the recognized – and notorious – policemen and ‘encounter specialists’ who took the gangs on with nice good fortune and never too many scruples.

Violence and deceit one expects to learn of, however the power of this publication is usually its skill to trap the mundane – virtually naive – beginnings of what in a short time grew to become the equipped crime and brutal vendettas that held Mumbai to ransom throughout the final a long time of the 20th century.

Meticulously researched and thrillingly informed through the stated specialist at the underworld, this is
faster-paced than Dongri to Dubai, or even extra chilling in its implications for India and the subcontinent.

The measured data are thus interpreted in terms of subsurface resistivity and thickness of various 30 3 Delineation of Fresh Groundwater Zone on Island layers. In order to interpret the vertical electrical sounding data the following assumptions are made: • subsurface consists of layers of finite thickness, • layers are homogeneous and isotropic having uniform thickness, and • boundary planes separating each layer are horizontal. There are different methods to convert the measured data into subsurface apparent resistivity and layer thickness.

One of the methods is directly to drill a bore hole and delineate the saturated zone. However, the drilling in many cases may not be possible due to logistic, economic or other restrictions. Therefore, indirect methods to obtain the information about subsurface conditions are often being used. S. 1007/978-3-319-50073-7_3 25 26 3 Delineation of Fresh Groundwater Zone on Island Geophysical methods are amongst them (Zohdy et al. 1974). These methods can be carried out at number of desired places on ground surface.

11). The parameters thus arrived are as follows: T ¼ 467:5 m2 =d and S ¼ 1:1 Â 10À3 The application of above “Type Curve” method requires sufficient aquifer response during pumping phase. However, due to insufficient aquifer response during short duration pumping phase, the method is limited in its application. Therefore, pumping phase data and recovery data are considered together for the interpretation using numerical method (Rushton and Redshaw 1979; Singh and Gupta 1986; Gupta and Singh 1988).
