We have been naturally worried about our relatives, friends and acquaintances' well being and left to hope for least misery for all. Alas, the media ran pathetic scenes and hopeless conditions so much so that you forgot your people. But I am afraid it is time to talk about the all round failures particularly of the government and corporations. TN had been hit by tsunami before and also prone to cyclones during NE monsoon periods. Yet the preparation or the unpreparedness of the government and the corporations has been striking. For a moment one would have thought that do we need a government. Looks like responsible people had been warned. You might have watched how fast the students in Salem made ingenuous flotable "catamaran" made of heavy tyres fastened to 2/3 bamboo poles, for transporting people from the flooded streets of Chennai while the rescue people were complaining about lack of rubber boats,etc in Chennai. How people rescued them selves from flooded buildings like tarzan. These and many more things not only tell us the spirit of Chennaites and TN people, but also exposes the uselessness of the government. There are many complaints for the unprecedented flooding and all of them will go to the lotus feet of Amma. The calamity exposed there was no democratic government functioning and every one was looking up to Amma, do not know for what. Amma's propaganda or the propaganda on Amma has become so notorious and ridiculous that somebody stuck an Amma's photo on ModiJi's back while he was returning to Delhi after announcing his donation of 1000 crores. Please remember Uttarakhand got many, many thousands of crores,but one of the best revenue earning state TN just got a symbolic relief fund. The misery of suffering will be told by many and the saga of rescuing will equally be heard all. It is all by the people, for the people and of the people of TN.
