May be God Loved her More...


As he watched the news headlines, he shuddered.
Yet another Tsunami...

Soon memories flooded thereby transporting him to December 2004
Has nine years passed, he could not believe.

In order to attend a press conference Carolyn had gone to Chennai; a journalist she was.
He was supposed to join her on New Year’s Eve and they would visit many places in India.
Carolyn was excited about her first trip to India.

He still remembered that twinkle in her eyes.
But, fate had other plans. May be God loved her more.

He sighed.
He closed his eyes and offered quick prayer.
A tear escaped his eyes...

  5. This brings a face to a tragedy so huge that the personal can get lost.
