Cada vez que observo imagenes como esta me doy cuenta de lo pequeños que somos frente a la naturaleza y que esta siempre tendrá la ultima palabra
Many said that God has His way of doing things.

I think it is simple. We should live as He wants and we should take all steps to take good care of His property - Mother Earth.

We must know that Earth belongs to Him and we are just living on borrowed time.

Many of us dirty the Earth and this could have annoyed Mother Nature. Many organisations and countries add more dirt to the sea and I think the sea came all out to throw out those dirt on us now.

And not only that it has claimed compensation by claiming countless lives.

Maybe this is also a lesson to all the super powers and the terrorist out there that God has come to tell all of us that He is still and will be the most powerful. Just imagine in just a few minutes He can create a force that can travel at a speed of about 800 km per hour or 100 km per hour as what hit Phuket. The former speed wave hit Sri Lanka.

With due respect to all religions We Hindus believe that Lord Shiva [ God ] will come to correct and teach people when things go out of hand.Lord Shiva the destroyer is a very kind Person and He forgive those who ask for forgiveness but will come out real strong when people do not heed him.

Also in the Universe we must give due respect and recognition to the five super elements of Nature ie. the Universe , the Sun, the Air , the Water [sea] , and Mother Earth.

Should any one of this be disturbed the effects will be devastating and when we create unbalances in the five elements, the Nature will correct itself and the cost will be tragic.

But again God was kind to the people of Phuket I think.............

Just imagine if 800 km per hour waves are to hit Phuket I think Phuket would be washed away . Even in selecting his target He chose to hit Phuket with a smaller less slower wave.

Thank God.

Lets in silence thank Him for whatever He did and pray for world peace and learn to respect the five elements of Nature everyday.

The beautiful sunset or sunrise following the tragedy just makes me reflect on how the world goes on... a few horrible moments that cause such devastation and pain, then the world's people pick themselves up and start another day. It's an amazing cycle of life, death and rebirth- all symbolized in this one beautiful photo. Thank God that you are alive and well.
