I'm coming into Pondicherry and Cuddalore to cover the aid efforts in these regions. Do you think you can pass me some contacts in these areas? Or if you can update me in terms of facts and figures of these places?


I'm presently in Kolkata.

Waves of fury beating on the shore,
Unimaginable heights terrify us to the core.

Man, woman, child it holds no discrimination,
Leaving behind utter chaos and mass devastation.

Suffering, bereavement, misery and sorrow,
How long must we endure this horror.

Lives lost, businesses perished and wrecked homes,
Stench of doom, still growing in loom.

What can we do in times like this,
Should we just stand by and not assist?

Please give your means to those in need,
This is the time to do good deeds.

Lastly, please say a prayer to all survivors of Tsunami,
May they have the strength to overcome this catastrophe.
