The Tsunami Effect

by Amlandeep Bhattacharya

It was during the Tsunami of 2004 that Latifa and Harshad met each other. They were doing a project work in Port Blair under the auspices of Dr.Rangarajan during the Tsunami. In fact they were having an affair.

Unfortunately the affair did not last long. One day when Latifa was coming back from work, she met Latika who murmered something that meant that Latika was sexually exploited by the local goons. When Latifa told Harshad to take some steps he refused, citing problems of entering into irrelevent matters.

After this incident, Latifa broke off with Harshad and shouted like a Tsunami storm,'coward'. The Tsunami effect was too much for Harshad to handle.
