Tamil Nadu:

The earth quake that hit the East Coast line on December26, 2004 did extensive damage to many places of Tamil Nadu, particularly Chennai, Pondichery, Cuddalore, Nagapattinam and Kanniyakumari. Tremors were initially felt around 6.30 in the morning. But around 8.45 a.m., the seawater raised upto 10 mtrs. With terrific speed engulfing the huts, houses and people living in the coastal areas and also people who were walking on the coastal road, children playing nearby, and fishermen both in and out of sea. Fishing boats, fishnets and catamarans were extensively damaged.

By 10.30 a.m., volunteers swung into action and involved themselves in the relief work and salvaging the dead. By noon 12.30 the volunteers started distributing food packets. By evening, the relief work gained momentum and more and more volunteers along with volunteers of many social service organisations like Ramakrishna Mutt etc., coordinated in arranging for food packets, buns, clothes, blankets, milk to the children etc. In some places, relief centres were opened and food prepared round the clock. Immediately, nearly 800 volunteers involved themselves in relief work. Around 20,000 food packets were distributed. Six medical centres were opened for giving medical assistance. The response from the general public was also spontaneous as a result of which clothes arrived at the relief centres in a big way.

A survey is being conducted in the coastal belt to assess the extent of damage and the areas which need rehabilitation work. In the coming days, it is decided to take up rehabilitation work on a larger scale particularly providing of boats, fishing nets, blankets, utensils, supply of note books, text books to the students, construction of houses etc. An office has been opened for the relief work in Chennai. Sri Bhaktavatsalam will co-ordinate the relief work. We appeal to the general public to co-operate by giving their donations at the earliest in the name of:

28 December 2004 Koradacheri

Our venue is In Koradacheri. We have a kalyana mandapam there where we
are cooking and feeding food for over 3000 people every day, and
medical care is being given. We are near to Nagapatnam. Unlike in
Chennai where there are industries helping, in Nagapatnam there is no
local support. The local authorities Tasildar and others are looking
to AIM for Seva for support.

Manjakkudi Ramachandran and his team of about 60-70 villagers of the
area near Koradacheri has been doing phenomenal work in preparing and
distributing food materials since Sunday. They have offered shelter to
over 2000 people since the evening of the disaster, also.

The situation is very bad there. Our people have gone to the site and
found dead bodies in the hundreds below the thatched roofs of
collapsed huts. The stench now fills the air.

AIM for Seva at the all India level is organizing its human and
material resources to be sent to the Koradacheri area.

Our phone calls around the country to Pujya Swamiji's devotees and
disciples has generated tremendous response.

27 December 2004 Chennai

All the people who were living near the coast have fled their homes
and are living in Govt schools, temples, Marriage halls etc. in
interior areas. On 27th Dec 2004 We went to Kelambakkam. We bought
food packets and water from a nearby hotel and distributed 250 packets
of food and 200 water sachets to people living in Kelambakkam Govt
School. We also visited the Kovalam village and surveyed the
damage. The shore temple which was renovated recently in intact. Many
houses which were adjacent to the shore have been damaged and damaged
boats are lying far away from the coastline. I talked to some
fishermen and they said that they have lost their livelihood as boats
and nets have been lost. It may take a month to put together something
and venture into the sea again.

From there we went to Pudupakkam Hill where there is an Anjaneya
temple. Many panic stricken people (more than 1000) have taken shelter
in this hill. The temple has some utensils (big ones) as annadana is
done here during auspicious days like Hanumatjayanthi. Some nearby
industries had donated stoves and LPG cylinders. They wanted
provisions for the evening meal and clothes. We gave the clothes,
which we had collected during the day, to them and bought provisions
like Rice, oil, spices etc. for Rs. 2800 and donated to them. I went
there in the evening again. They had really done a good job of cooking
sambar rice, tomato rice and Curd rice with pickle ( I tasted some)
and were distributing the food to the people. I went up the hill and
talked to the people there. Many old people wanted some warm clothes
and bedsheets. Someone had donated bedsheets but all of them did'nt
get it. The people there told me that they have'nt got relief from the
Govt yet. Only NGOs and other local people have been helping them out.

We expect the people to slowly go and settle down in their villages
today, if there are no more aftershocks, but they still require
provisons, utensils and other household items. We had called up all
our friends,students and the people we know during the day and they
all have agreed to donate provisons, clothes and some money. We will
collecting all those materials and distribute it in the coming days. I
will also be talking to the village elders today and find out what can
be done for the longterm so that they can start their livelihoods
again.
