Waves washed ashore hundreds of dreams

Its not the rain but tears of the fishermen families drenched Kanyakumari last week post Ockhi cyclone. I heard horror tales of fishermen who witnessed deaths of their friend, relative in the mid sea while waiting for rescue boat or helicopter.
One man told me his son in law died infront of his eyes and he returned him and couldnt find words to give any hope to his daughter, a mother of two children now.
After interviews, questions raised by widows in those families echoed in my ears again and again. The images of those women and children disturbed me.
