Manalkaadu beach, Point-Pedro, Sri Lanka - Devastated by a Tsunami, Sri Lanka.

An abandoned well.

Rebuilding on a ruiined site.

Abandoned village.

The cemetery on a sand dune and a new settlement two Kilometers inland.
How can one imagine a tragedy of such proportions. Losing one's house, losing one's village, losing ones family, losing friends and relations, losing all the well tended trees - what a tragedy. Life starts again and for a newer generation the associated stories will become legends.
