Scindia were a very good company , in fact I believe the oldest Indian shipowner and it was sad to see them go 'down the tubes'. The last Scindia ship I saw was anchored off Port Said , 'Panamax' and looking very sorry for herself. They should have stuck to what they knew , i.e. Cargo Liners and not get involved in the Tramp Market.
