The heavy rain and 120-130 km. cyclone yesterday in Chennai completely shattered the lives of the people, with more than 10 dead and colossal loss of buildings etc. Thousands of trees have been uprooted and almost all roads blocked. Electricity shut down. Life in shambles. This is almost a repetition of the last years deluge. Nature’s fury has once again struck Chennai.

Our sympathies are with the suffering people. Telecom workers are on 24 hours job to restore connections, wherever destroyed. Hope normalcy will be restored soon.

The coastal areas of Andhra also have been affected seriously. We sympathise with them and hope for early normalcy.
