Earthquake in India
Since the last issue of LALKAR a terrible earthquake struck India – its epicentre being the Gujarat town of Bhuja. Apart from material devastation, estimated conservatively at $1 billion, it has taken toll of several tens of thousands of lives.
We send our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families who have lost their near and dear and their homes. We express the hope that they will prove equal to the task of repairing the damage, bearing the tragic loss of life with fortitude, and constructing new lives for themselves.
