      Dear Ramgopal,

      Thank you for sharing the article. I'm going to pass it on to my
      Science English class at Kuwait University.

      To Vance, where can we view the pictures sent to you by Sayed,

      Thanks, again, Ramgopal,Vance, and Sayed.

      > I have a worldspace digital DTH radio receiver and listened to a
      broadcast from Radio Sweden (1330 UTC - "Sixty Degrees North") today
      over the World Radio Network. I was touched by the concern they have
      shown for 1400 odd Scandinavian tourists who went visiting tropical
      paradise hit by Tsunami, escaping from their winter. It is
      remarkable that Sweden has decided to observe Jan 1st 2005 as
      national day of mourning and flags will fly at half mast !!. Look
      how they care for their folks.

      something similar. I was horrified to see people here still planning
      to celebrate the New Year eve !!. We have to learn from the Swedes.

      > JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Wild animals seem to have escaped the
      Indian Ocean tsunami, adding weight to notions they possess a "sixth
      sense" for disasters, experts said Thursday.
      > Sri Lankan wildlife officials have said the giant waves that
      killed over 24,000 people along the Indian Ocean island's coast
      seemingly missed wild beasts, with no dead animals found.
      > "No elephants are dead, not even a dead hare or rabbit. I think
      animals can sense disaster. They have a sixth sense. They know when
      things are happening," H.D. Ratnayake, deputy director of Sri
      Lanka's Wildlife Department, said Wednesday.
      > The waves washed floodwaters up to 2 miles inland at Yala National
      Park in the ravaged southeast, Sri Lanka's biggest wildlife reserve
      and home to hundreds of wild elephants and several leopards. "There
      has been a lot of anecdotal evidence about dogs barking or birds
      migrating before volcanic eruptions or earthquakes. But it has not
      been proven," said Matthew van Lierop, an animal behavior specialist
      at Johannesburg Zoo.
      > "There have been no specific studies because you can't really test
      it in a lab or field setting," he told Reuters.
      > Other authorities concurred with this assessment.
      > "Wildlife seem to be able to pick up certain phenomenon,
      especially birds ... there are many reports of birds detecting
      impending disasters," said Clive Walker, who has written several
      books on African wildlife.
      > Animals certainly rely on the known senses such as smell or
      hearing to avoid danger such as predators.
      > The notion of an animal "sixth sense" -- or some other mythical
      power -- is an enduring one which the evidence on Sri Lanka's
      battered coast is likely to add to.
      > The Romans saw owls as omens of impending disaster and many
      ancient cultures viewed elephants as sacred animals endowed with
      special powers or attributes.
      > The tsunami was triggered by an earthquake in the Indian Ocean
      Sunday. It killed tens of thousands of people in Asia and East

        Dear Vance
        Thanks for your email. These pics were forwarded by one of my friends
        and having seen your concerns about the affected people and that you
        would like to have some photos, I spared not a second to forward them
        to you. These are meant for everybody's awareness, so please feel free
        to upload them on the board.

        I love to see you sincere efforts to help the victims of this tragedy.
        In fact you have helped me to think that we can also help in this way.

        Keep in touch and have a nice day.

        Kind regards
        Sayed from Pakistan
