Just getting back from my business trip….Found some time to connect with you all…
The current situation in Chennai due to unprecedented rain is something that had not happened in the past 120+ years. This situation is similar to what New Orleans went through several years back. The entire Chennai is drowned. It was very sad to see so many people have lost their houses, died, suffering despite their age etc. I saw a news column where a lady is unable to cremate her mother for the past 30+ hours – very sad. A colleague of mine could not travel to Chennai for his father’s by-pass surgery etc. So many discomforts. Unfortunately, this situation has not caught the attention of the8 rest of the nation – at least it seems that way to me – I may be wrong. It all boils down to lack of proper city planning and expansion of infrastructure.
We all pray to Lord Nellaiappar, to save the city of Chennai as He saved the padddy from the rain/flood. We pray the Govardhana Krishnan to protect us from this rain as He did for the people of govardhana giri. We pray Mahaperiyava who is none other than Sarveswaran to bring back the normalcy to the lives of Chennai folks.
Till things are settled, please stay indoor and stay dry.
Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!
