Most Tragic Boxing Day in History

I was in bad mood today coz 26 December 2004 was recorded as the most tragic Boxing Day in history !!!

An earthquake under sea of Indonesia measuring 8.9 in magnitude triggered a series of tsunamis sweeping across the coastal lines of South East Asia countries. At the time of writing this post, the number of people killed was over 3000.

India: 1,000 dead
Thailand: 55 dead
Indonesia: 450 dead
Malaysia: 7 dead

The death toll is expected to rise.

Christmas is supposed a time for joy, fun and family reunion. Let's hope no more natural disasters will happen in festive days in future.
