    The BBC and the Indian Met Dept have been reporting this from the time the 'low pressure area' developed, predicting its development into a cyclone with SL being in its firing line! Its possible path across SL was also given in the Indian website. Our officials and the media have been sitting on it all this time. An officer working for the Min of Disaster Mgt when contacted on 30th Nov (unofficially) said that they were waiting for the Dept of Met to 'confirm' !!! Now we have a warning which is very much a 'copy, cut, paste' from the Indian website. Once the damage is done, we will be shown floating school books and whatever other damage. The Media Orgs will compete with each other to tell us about their 'relief ops'. The correct action would have been to warn the citizens at the very first instance we had details of this weather system so they would have had sufficient time to move to safety. The children most certainly would have taken their books with them. WE NEVER LEARN?
