as one half of the world huddles up for comfort and protection against the raging storm of hurricane sandy, the other half watches as cyclone neelam fast approaches the indian continent, sweeping through sri lanka on its way to tamil nadu and andhra pradesh.
both hitting at the same time, bearing gifts of floods, destructive winds and fear.
since my flight back home to chennai is crossing the bay of bengal at the exact same time as cyclone nilam, i wonder if my spicejet flight will make it.
my thoughts and love go out to all who are at the mercy of the hurricane and the cyclone this week, wherever in the world you may be.
