    The Quake, The Tsunami and the aftermath​
    The whole world had got the jolt even though only Japan had to bear the brunt of the natural calamity. I condole for those who lost their lives and pray the Almighty to give the Japanese the strength and courage to come out of this catastrophe. Of course Japanese are hard working and brave people and how they built there nation after the Hiroshima Nagasaki bomb attack, the whole world knows.

    But now the situation looks grim due to the explosion and the fear of melting of uranium at the nuclear power station looming largely at them. Though they are trying to control it to the best of their ability, the frequent after shocks also compound their problems. We should admire their spontaneous decision to evacuate two lakhs people from the affected area. They have done a commendable job. But people are struggling to get drinking water and food. Losing their homes and living on dole given by the government is a very pathetic condition. May God help the Japanese to recover from this unforeseen great calamity at the earliest!

    Does this calamity attributed only to the fury of nature? Do humans completely absolved of their acts against nature? Does not the mining, deforestation and testing of nuclear bombs under the sea and in the deserts have no impact on earth?

    Already France, Germany, England and other nations have started worrying about the safety of nuclear power stations. It is time to rethink on building nuclear power plants without proper safety measures.

    The latest news is the radiation limit has already exceeded the safety level. It is time for the whole world to help the Japanese in whatever way they could.

    It is also time to reconsider about the perspectives of the nuclear power plants, [FONT=&quot]taking into account of Japan’s plight.[/FONT]

    Dear Pushpa ma,

    Thought provoking and very touching indeed. It is so painful to watch the videos. And if I think of myself being in such situation...I can't even imagine. We are doing so many stuff that spoils our mother nature. Everyone has to give it a thought before doing any actions that affects the nature. We need to understand, the ultimate victims at last are we - the people!! What we can do at this point in time is to pray god to give them strength mentally as well physically to bear the current situation and the power and support to heal from it.

    Dear Pushpa mam,

    Reading it with a heavy heart.

    As you say it's hightime to reconsider the safe installation of nuclear plants.

    The whole world is praying for Japan and it's a battle between nature's fury & God's mercy!?!?

    JAPAN YOU ARE IN OUR PRAYERS:bowdown

    Dear Malar,
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. This kind of calamity can happen anywhere at any time. After Japan's experience with the nuclear reactor hope that awareness is created among people.
    Our prayers are with Japanese people,
    Love,
    PS

    Ms. Pushpa,
    Your blog has made me think about our life. In one min, their life changed completely. I have young friends in Tokyo and al of their families are ok. As you have pointed out that Japanese are very hard workers and will rebuild the country soon. But is was sad to see the videos.
    Hope these kind of things wouldn't happen in near future. I am sure Perumal will take care of them.

    Dear coffeelover,
    Our prayers are with the Japanese and let us hope that they would rise like a phoenix from the fire and build their country as they did after the world war two.
    I am amazed to see the Japanese disciplined and dignified behaviour after the great catastrophe. People in our country has to learn a lot from them.
    Thanks for dropping in and posting your valuable comments,
    Love,
