High Alert in TN, Andamans, and Kerala Coasts on Possible Tsunami Reccurence

The Met department sounded off a warning on a possible Tsunami attack on the coastal TN and Kerala. It triggered a wave of panic among people in Nagapattinam, the worst hit area in TN. Nanda Kishore, my friend, in Chennai, was in Kovalam with two vanloads of relief supplies but had to post-pone distributing aid to tomorrow because of the Tsunami warning. Nanda told me on phone that choppers announced on PA systems about the possible Tsunami. Authorities are evacuating people from Kovalam. The sea, according to Nanda, appears calm now. 'I guess no one wants to take a chance, over and out!' said Nanda. But Sun TV News says the possibility of another Tsunami hitting the TN coast does not exist.
Elsewhere, Rajiv Sreenivasan offers a mystical perspective that's so NOT needed at this hour. He writes,
The devastation by the tsunami in Tamil Nadu, could it be a caveat from Up There about the atrocities being visited on the Kanchi Acharya? About adharma gaining ground?
There are mysterious forces out there that are not fully understood by our oh-so-rational selves. I am reminded of the strange signs and omens that historians recorded before calamities: for instance the rain of frogs in Vietnam preceding the cataclysmic war. Or the odd celestial signs that preceded the death of Julius Caesar.
It is said that the very elements can be affected by the mystical powers of sages who have acquired superhuman powers through meditation and sadhana. I think we should all tread carefully, for now we are treading on things we do not know. Link on Rediff

Rajiv, do you seriously believe all that? If god or any other power had indeed punished these thousands of innocent people because your fav saint was arrested, and atrocities were visited on him, then all I have to tell YOUR god is this: F*** you god.
