The yellow of sunshine and daffodils, the most visible colour in the spectrum. The yellow of cowardice, treachery and madness. The yellow of the Yellow Jersey. Big Tex is at it again. This time seated in his Mellow Johnny bike shop – named for a lazy American corruption of maillot jaune – those seven jerseys hanging defiantly on the wall. He is surfing a tsunami of self-pity, employing every well-worn facial tic – the steely gaze, the half-grimace and the self-satisfied smirk – to assure us that, if he had to do it all again he would (in 1995) or he wouldn’t (in 2015) and that he thinks now he would change the man, if not his decision to participate in the ...

Tsunami lessons 28.12.2014 Asian Age: Editorial
The tsunami triggered by an undersea megathrust earthquake of a virtually unheard of 9.1 on the Richter scale washed way thousands of people and their homes along the coasts of Sri Lanka, India, Malaysia and Thailand. The Coromandel Coast, southwards from Chennai up to Kanyakumari, experienced the worst impact. The passage of a decade has not healed all the scars. Fear persists and those whose livelihoods lie in the sea are still psychologically stressed.

However, questions remain whether successive governments have done enough to rebuild the lives of the lakhs of fishermen affected in the intervening 10 years.

The tsunami showed what preparedness to tackle calamities really means. It also showed that the effect of tidal waves could be even more ...
