Happy Deepavali ~ Help Vizag to recover from HudHud Cyclone

I wish you all Happy Diwali! Diwali is the festival that brings all the age groups in the family, city, state and country together with it's unique fun of Lighting up Diyas and Fire Crackers! However due to impact of Huge Cyclone in Vizag, A.P I am not that up lifted for this festival this year. I was shocked when i looked at some of the Before and After pictures of Vizag and the devastation that HudDud Cyclone caused in the city, which is proposed as one of Smart Cities in near future by Prime Minister of India.

I have never been to Vizag, nor the resident of this city, but still all the damage happened there is bugging me, just because I am also from the same state. I can only imagine, what pain the Vizagites have been gone through during this disaster event. Everybody is saying the HudDud Cyclone took the Vizag 30 years back.

But at the same time it is so amazing, to see all the people are coming forward to fix their homes and lives and to move forward with positive spirits. I wish them all my wishes and pray God to give them enough strength, courage to keep up with the same spirit and to see the Vizag to Rebuild to it's original and even becoming more strong and stand-up as smart city as proposed. And I encourage all of us to support financially and stretch our hand to the people in Vizag to aid them to recover from this tragic event and help to 'Rebuild Vizag'.
