Completely wrong, this kind eruptions aren't violent, only big in them is amount of spewed out stuff. They're like Hawaiian eruptions. And there was no any second impact on India.

Then India had a period of volcanic eruptions named bassault lava eruptions which are much more violent than normal eruptions.
A possible link between impacts and volcanism became evident in 1974 when the Mariner 10 spacecraft flew past the innermost planet Mercury. The planet was found to be covered with impact craters like the moon. One giant impact crater on Mercury was particularly interesting. Directly opposite the impact point, on the other side of the planet (called the "antipodal point") was a region of highly disrupted terrain with no evidence of an impact. The shock waves from the impact on one side of Mercury had traveled around the surface and met simultaneously at the antipodal point to create the chaotic features. Similar features have since been detected on several moons of the giant planets.
Chicxulub impact and that the shock waves caused the Deccan Traps. Taking into account millions of years of continental drift, this region would have been at the antipodal point to Mexico at the time of the impact.
How about starting from the fact writer of that book has architect's education?
Originally posted by Indy..Not By Fire But By Ice it states in the book that when there was drilling in the Gulf in that region that volcanic rock was discovered indicating that the crater may have been left by a massive underwater volcanic eruption instead of an impact. Its possible that the data from the drilling may have been misinterpreted.
