Tsunami aftermath in India

When a tsunami struck parts of Asia and Africa on December 26, 2004, the tragedy would slowly reveal itself as one of the most devastating natural disasters in human history. In its aftermath it left behind enormous suffering and an unimaginable number of dead and homeless people. In India around 15.000 people lost their lives, most of them in the southern state of Tamil Nadu where poor fishing communities, living in simple huts on the beaches, stood little chance to defy the forces of nature.
