Tsunami of 2004

Tsunami of 2004

The tragic tsunami of 2004 left many homeless, maimed, and desolate. It was a disaster in full sense. But, somewhere it left an indelible mark in the lives of so many people. It also reminds us of the havoc that we have played and are playing with nature, and the tragedy yet to befall us with our innovation and development spree continuing unabated.

Tsunamis like that of 2004 in the Indian subcontinent will continue to engross and involve us, if we carry on with our exploits of nature. It is high time we stopped, else time won't wait for us.

Tsunami Of 2004

Life that Sunday morning was same as usual,

Waves along the beach were flowing like habitual.

Suddenly something happened, the beach turned into sea,

Enjoyment turned to mourning, without entailing a fee.

It was all a costly affair,

But a few were left with lots of grief to share.

The rich and the poor were equalled here,

Having nothing with them, only fear and tear.

Their lives changed from gay to gloom,

New year celebrations transformed into grief from bloom.

Life for them all will never be the same,

The culprit behind all this is tsunami by name.

A wish is coming straight from my heart,

They all will have to begin their lives from the start.

I hope nature will never be that cruel again,

So that no one has to bear such suffering and pain.

Oh God! I wish no life would again be at stake,

This wish is from heart and not fake!
