Thank you Srirr for the complete picture.

Catastrophe is a catastrophe, be that of man-made or of nature's fury. Adding insult to injury is ...... A restrain is most welcome.

Romany is right. let's do away with the gendered language.

To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man's injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man's superior. Has she not greater intuition, is she not more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be. If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with woman. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?

Hobs, this part of the globe too has a sizable number of such who could be dispatched into the Bay of Bengal, though retrospectively.
