Mother Nature yet again showed her agony by saving the coastal states with less damage. People call it Her anger but it is the human error that resulted once again in this Hudhud disaster. Cyclone Hudhud pounded the districts with gale winds of almost 200 kmph on Sunday. People are still facing the continuous batter of rains. Lack of power, non-availability of drinking water, disrupted communication, broken roads and depleting essential supplies has added to their woes.

Our Varija Asram which is on the shore of Bay of Bengal also became a victim of Hudhud cyclone. All the kutirams, thatched sheds constructed for classrooms, dining and discourse purposes were flown away. 50% of the solar panels which were erected for 100 KB were badly damaged. Uprooted trees, utensils, roofing materials, trash and broken power lines are strewn everywhere.

The recent construction of Nethra Vidyala made by the sincere efforts of Mr. Srimannarayana Reddy and with the dedicated help of VT Seva really saved the lives of blind children, Vedic students and inmates of asram. The building was constructed taking lot of risks and now it proved worth taking all those risks. If the building was not constructed, nothing would have remained due to this cyclone.

JET and Vikasa Tarangini volunteers raised to the occasion and are pooling up resources to conduct rescue operations. HH Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji cancelled all festive activities during the Diwali and Thirunakshathram celebrations. HH Sri Swamiji is urging everyone to join hands to alleviate the sufferings of the victims. HH suggested everyone to donate the money spent on buying new clothes, buying crackers and lend a helping hand to the victims of cyclone.
