  1. First one evacuates and shelters one million people, and then again in another place they do the same with 2.1 million?

    Who knew?

    I had no idea India cares for it's people to such a degree.

    It puts the USA to shame. Real shame.

    Can you even imagine if the west coast USA states ordered a million of it's people to evacuate? to where would they go? how would they get there? No one knows.
