Boats and Fishing Nets Needed in Nagore, Tamil Nadu, India
NAGORE (TN): The tidal waves from the sea devoured their near and dear ones and all belongings. Yet, the sea beckons them, as irresistibly as ever, for a hard-earned living and to end a life on others' mercy.
The fishernmen of this village, who survived the tsunami onslaught, are restless to return to the sea for earning a living instead of staying in relief camps.
"Give us boats and fishing nets. We want to go to the sea and earn livelihood on our own. For how many more days should we stand in such queues waiting for food and water?" says Mayyalakan, a fisherman.
