Double Calculations!

Sure you guys must've read about Ambani bhaiya climbing to the top of the world's richest list.

Well soon after that, there was another report stating that there was some mistake and he infact isnt the richest just yet. Link

My problem is not with that, but with the statement made by the Reliance Spokesman Tushar Pania, who was quoted as saying:

"They are completely wrong. They have done double calculations

What's wrong with just saying that there was an error in the calculation, or some factors were not taken into account, or something like the figures calculated were incorrect. This is perhaps just a tad bit better than saying Galti se mishtake hogaya hoga.

The message did get across, which is usually the whole point of any communication but I am not asking for PERFECTION over here, just a bit of sense.

Hey Kitchy,

Nope, I wasnt part of the team.
About Ambani being the richest,or not, hardly makes a difference to me. I couldn't care less.

I just have a problem with the statement issued. thats all.

"they have done double calculations" is hardly proper english.

As I had mentioned, Its not like one is looking for perfection, just a BIT of sense when one issues a statement for the press.
