It was reported yesterday, that the Indian goverment were reluctant to let aid agencies to begin to offer relief to the people of these islands. In a public press conference Mediciene San Frontiers asked for permission to go to these Indian outposts to have the reply that they would be given a decision in the morning. This was 5 days after the event. It makes you question why the Indian goverment appear to be reluctant to let outside agencies access the island. Undoubtedly there will be a lot of casualties, even more without relief aid, so what could it be that makes the Indian goverment not want outside support immediately?
I would welcome some discussion upon this and especially from those who may have direct experience of these islands.

Since your post is under Aliens and UFO"S is your point that those islands have something to do with aliens? Maybe that's where some live?

Both of those Islands hold the equivelant of neolithic or something societies. The Indian government takes the stance of keeping them untainted as a window to our collective past. Plus one of the tribes is hostile (read kill you and eat you maybe) to outsieders. Could there be another explanation, yes but in this case I think they want to approach aid in a way that won't scare the sh-- out of the natives.

The indigenous Andaman and Nicobarese tribes that exist there hold a very fragile existence. The Indian government is very strict when it comes to letting people in and out of these islands especially Nicobar. Even the local Indian populace find it hard to visit these places though they are well known for their natural beauty. Another island which India holds similar views, but to a lesser extent is the Laccadive islands in the east side of India.
