Cuddalore in the news

by Maxine Wolstenholme

.....In Pattaraiyadi, near Chidambaram in the district of Cuddalore, houses built 20 years ago by the Indian Government had collapsed. There, smiling women announced: "You have made us very happy.

Mr Surimuthi, village leader in Pattarayaidi, Cuddalore, told us: "On full moon days the water comes up to our house and we sometimes wonder if it will be a tsunami again, but we have had training and now we have confidence. Thirty-five people have been trained in this village so that we have confidence to rescue people if it happens again." full story>>
