What are we debating on?
Of course disaster is disaster anywhere in the world & death is death & ache is ache !! We are not being happy that we recovered faster & our friendz are still suffering ! Yes,with geographical & financial differences it is probably not right to compare.......
But it's only that it feels nice to read abt our efficiency to 'fight back'-that's it !
As far as govt is concerned we know how corrupt are our politicians too ! & in Mumbai,during the 'acute' phase, it was more of ppl helping 'themselves' before govt could wake up.
Mumbai may be financial capital fo govt's treasure but 'A comman man' knows how difficult everyday life is even without any calamity....from working women to the slums living by the tracks to ppl in Dharavi...! most ppl 'exist' for bread n not 'live' but over the yrs they've learnt to fight with /for life! They don't lose spirit even during the worst conditions may it be floods (God given) or Riots (leaders given).
so many young girls stayed overnight at unknown places with unknown ppl in helpless conditions but hardly any eve teasing was noticed in 'a city otherwise full of crimes'. PPl faught with authority, if the tracks weren't repaired in 3 days.
This yr, even though every home has suffered physically,financially,emotionally Ganeshji has got as grand & as warm welcome in even in smallest of house as if nothing happened! I mean somehow pace here makes everyone run & return to normalcy soon.
Yes many parts of India suffer from disasters as Minnie pointed abt Bhuvaneshwar;another eg. is Kutchh....every yr it has something for reserve......but somehow ppl here are more tolerant & don't give up easily,neither they sit idle waiting for the aid. This is what makes difference & makes us proud of....!
Of course powerful hands do have to realise the importance of lives irrespective of their hand in the economy.....may it be any part of the world !! & yes our friends there must be trying their best to recover,we understand their pain too, after all it is struggle to survive...............
As Blue said the article was circulated on the net & the title mustn't be to prove anything abt US or India but proly only observation. No offence.
