Tsunami & Kerala

In Kerala’s context, the precautionary 
measures as practised elsewhere on a war footing are not that important.Flexing the muscles of the state to take on an imaginary tsunami embedded somewhere deep in the nebulous future will be very quixotic of us. But then there is not any such technology to arrest any mammoth wave on the rampage with a nose for wreaking destruction. Kerala, for one, is not placed fortunately in the beaten track of tsunamis. But theoretically tsunamis can strike anywhere any time. Global tsunami scenario is dominated by seismicity-induced tsunamis, and Kerala is not in the neighborhood of sub- marine seismicity. The east coast of India, on the other hand, is not that fortunate because
the chain of islands beginning with the Andamans and running to Indonesian archipelago is unstable and has a history of volcanism and tectonic instability. The people of Kerala were sitting duck to the wrath of the killer wave because it smote us suddenly from the blue. When the sea is subsided to a treacherous calm and receded to unprecedented depths,curiosity got to the better of us. It wasnature’s way of signaling the shape of things to come. But, even in our wildest dreams it did not occur to us that the sea was up to real mischief. In other words we were least prepared to receive a tsunami. But one can never mobilizeagainst an unknown enemy. People of Japan, on the other hand, are tsunami smart across the centuries. Inthe long march of generations they learned to live with it and accommodate it. Theylearned to live with it instead of impeding it or programming it.
