Lets build a ray of hope in disaster-struck Chennai

While the rain has subsided, Chennai is still gasping for breath. Tens of thousands of people were marooned with power cut, scarcity of drinking water and other essential commodities. Even though the government has not yet declared the official death toll, the police estimate has put to be around 541. As water receded, several bodies were found in the flats and houses. Chennai is faced with one of the worst disasters it ever faced in this century. Millions have lost their houses, belongings and livelihood. It would take years for Chennai to regain its lost glory.
