I hope you could co-relate. It is definitely a disturbing post, and i was just being selective in not keeping even more disturbing pictures of this incident in here.
 
The two phases of the world...the same day......same time....just across the globe.
Friday, 311 - March 2011 - was a beautiful day here. Sky was blue...few cottony clouds around...weather was perfect that you had to be out to enjoy it to the full...the sea was soo calm.
Mother Nature was being really pleasant and sweet.
 
But right across, straight across the globe..she was putting on that most wicked mask. Unleasing terror all around.
 
She could be soo calm and soo violent at the very same time.
 
 
 She could just be ME, YOU..and honestly, that look on her face, just makes me wonder.."are you prepared for the unexpected, God forbid something bad happens.? Manmade...natural disasters ..are way too common in the papers these days, that they dont move you any more, unless you yourself gets affected by it. Personally, ME..am not at all prepared for anything bad..and I would go blank. Unable to respond.
 

Mamma Earth....pleeassee...dont do this to us . Their pray ?

That was of the second episode of Tsunami that we came to witness.

The first, Dec 26th 2004, was even more scary, for me. Coz..he was there..right in the middle of it, in Maldives..when it hit, and me, a 5 month preggie lady back home in India !

 
 
you will have no clue what i went through....
 
...to be continued.

  9. Hi Sona, whatever it is, nobody can predict what's going to happen in the next seconds. Just live our lives and be good to others as I believe in karma. Take care and regards :)

  10. I did read this post a while ago... But didn't leave a comment as I was not sure what to write...The two sides differ so starkly. And I'm completely unprepared if something like that happens to us. But then, what can you prepare in advance when you think about it!
