    Very sad. India must send as much support as it can to the neighbour. This Vedic astrology writer has been alerting for long that during August-September or before in 2017, sea or countries near sea should be ready to face natural disasters like massive record rain or floods and the like. It seems India may also be ready in coming months , particularly in August-September in present year to face natural or man made disasters in sea , through sea and in coastal States like Tamil Nadu , Gujrat , Andhra Pradesh , Telangana , Mumbai- Goa, Andaman & Nicobar Islands. These alerts were made last year in October -November.
