Cyclone Gaja is now officially the worst that has hit the Delta Region in the past 25 years. Starting its vicious cycle in the coastal regions of Nagapattinam and Vedaranyam at a speed of 110-120 kmph, the mighty cyclone took a path of destruction across Nagapattinam, Thiruvarur, Thanjavur, Pudhukottai, Sivagangai, Dingugal and parts of Theni & Madurai districts. The cyclone has crumbled houses, killed the livestock, uprooted the trees and flooded the fields in the region where the main source of income for 95% of the population is agriculture. Every morning we wake up doing nothing, they are waking up to dead livestock and fallen trees with a thousand questions about how to start over. It takes 10 years for a fully grown coconut tree to start yielding coconuts and there are lakhs of trees Gaja has played with.
Come let’s help the people who fed us all our lives!
