Burma n China - what sin did they do?

Most of you might have heard about the tragic events in Burma and China. If not, please go through the links below for more details.
Cyclone in Burma(Myanmar)
Earthquake in China
When I heard the news about Burma cyclone, I felt bad for the country as it's poll time there and the government is too busy with those issues. There are some controversies too about the aid coming in but I feel it's better not to comment on that issue.
Just when the world is coming out of the shock, an earthquake hit China yesterday and the death toll was estimated to be more than 10000. It's heartening to hear a news snippet about how 900 students were stuck inside a collapsed school.
It's not the news that I wanted to write about. It's about the loss of so many lives. Why should those innocent people die without any mistake of theirs? Is there no way to save at least a few of them? Thousands and thousands of innocent lives.....
There was a small post on the ideal gadget by Sneha a while back. I answered some stupid thing but now, I've got the right answer for that question. I need some gadget that warns people of natural calamities much in advance and also gives them directions to the safest place nearby.
All that we can do at this stage is to try and help those affected people and pray for their well-being and quick recovery.
Please have a look at the other wonderful post on the same issue by Ceedy.
Also, check the success story of Anshuman

Yeah...many many innocent lives. Very sad.

But its also God's way of recycling, if you know what I mean.

I don't know what sin they did that the Gods have brought this upon them, what I would like to know is what the Burmese civilians did that the govt is not allowing relief workers to enter the country!

Swathi said...

something like natural calamities cannot be stopped as it is a force of nature..but what about blasts in jaipur where nearly 62 people died all because of another heartless human being :(((!!!
