Cross equtorial wind

Cross equtorial wind near Somali is NOT so impresive. There is no turning towards west coast of India, but heading towards North East Arabian Sea.
Goa 27052010/0000Z RS reports -winds from 300 Degree /10 knots at 850 hPa.
But in the Bay the cross equtorial winds are relatively stronger. Interesting.
