My painting:Indian classical dance...........
It had been a year since the Japanese origin word "TSUNAMI" shook(WASHED OFF) the entire coastal areas(TAMILNADU,NAGAI,KANNIYAKUMARI and also Indonesia,Srilanka,........).Today the very first word I heard (OFCOURSE SECOND TO "Mani ena aachu?...Endhirida kannu ;) ) was The Yacky RJ screaming "GOOD MORNING. Tsnamiyaala badhika pattavanga elarukum engaloda anudhabangal.......And this is ur favourite RJ ..........................".Then the whole show was about this TOPIC. No one forgot to use this word. For every Media had this word heard/seen/read! It is understandable. And ofcourse even today those SAD/HEART BREAKING VIDEOS & PHOTOGRAPHS are like just printed 1's in our MIND& HEART. All of us were quite generous and humane enough to help them. There were infact so many volunteers that many (had no work to be assigned & so) were not assigned any work but just remained as a supportive hand.Now with all the funds raised by the Govt. & private organization some how the survivors have made it. Many of them were one lucky (Rather unlucky to be left alone) person left behind the killer waves. And they could hardly (try to) forget those sad memories.
Today almost all the Satlt Tamil Channels (?Upto my knowledge!) had been repeatedly heating up those DEC 26' 2004 Cassettes ,they kept re-re-re-retelecasting the same video for almost the whole 24. But what is the necessity to keep airing those heartbreaking videos!!!!!!!!! Does it help any? the survivors, u, me................. ?? And the survivors would have probably been crying the whole day.....Seeing those videos. It would infact remind the tsunami survivors of their worst nightmare. Are the private satellite channels trying to showoff that their video collection is better than the other.Instead they could have showed us what the survivors are doing now, how they are adjusting to the new life style, in what condition is the tsunami relief works , rehabilitation .......... Lots of other things to show. They could educate us on the tsunami & other such unexpected catastrophes and their symptoms. It had already been known that before the tsunami is going to hit, the sea would recede few meters. But on the day tsunami hit our coastal parts, this did happen and because of our lack of knowledge in this regard many of the fishermen, regular joggers and others had been looking at this site in astonishment than getting away. For there are other things that the common people are not aware of, the private channels could educate people on various such things.

NOTE:Here is A favorite work of mine that I had completed earlier during my vacations.

After the disaster the media showed the news for max of two weeks and then wat happened?
Media is just not to show who did what and who din do anything, being a part of the society even they should be doing something. other than just giving money... with so many cameramen and personel on the scene. How can you try and shoot an award winning video of a person sinking???
LOOSE MORALE!!
