The massive successful evacuation during cyclone Phailin was no mean task . Not many would have expecetd us to be that prepared , especially in the backdrop of the Uttarakhand disaster of June '13. The successful evacuation was an effort stemming out of years of planning, construction requisite infrastructure and most importantly involvement of local organisations and volunteer teams after the super cyclone . The dedication of leaders like Satya is truly inspiring . This story is a good example of having learnt the right lessons from the past and ensuring maintenance , something as Shankar rightly points out , we are not good at. Thanks Onno for the blog.
