A couple lost all their three chilren in the 2004 tsunami. But in sorrow the couple, Parmeshwaran and Chudamani, found a new reason to live when they reached out to the many children who were orphaned by the same tsunami in Nagappatinam. Today 26 children can dream of a future because of the couple.
As the tsunami swept through the coasts of Nagapattinam in 2004, Parmeshwaran and Chudamani lost their three children. "That day I could see my husband and me standing both as zero again as we were in 1991, when we were married. There was a big question mark. My first daughter was 12, the second one was nine and my son was five years old," Chudamani said.
