is a huge blog,and as the name suggests its all about the Tsunami and earthquakes that rocked south east Asia a few years ago,and still incidents are reported about these calamities happening again.

am sorry if i missed anyone,there are around 50 authors i guess.[Told you,this blog is a huge and a great effort]
Genre - Social
Created-26th decemebr,2004
Read many blogs,reviewed few of them,liked many,but man this was great in every sense of the word.this blog should be termed as a movement.Kudos to the people who started it and maintained it so very well.Reading it was like i have immersed myself into a huge information bank about everything and anything i want to know about tsunami,the news,the relief operations.the organizations working for the cause.
The large group of authors ensures that we have opinions and views of people from all parts of the world.Also look at the features,the amount of effort that has been done to ensure that this blog doesnt remain a mere blog but a movement of a large scale.So you have a feature which translates the text in 8 different languages of your choice.Then there are special email addresses to contact the people,if anyone wants to particiapte in the blog as a volunteer or translator etc.
Not to forget the very useful list of resource links.
3 posts i definately will recomnd the readers would be :-
1. PM' relief fund
2. A first person account of his volunteer efforts in sri lanka
3. Solomon Islands : six dead from tsunami

So a great blog and i think we should have more of such blogs for a social awakening to happen.Do chek it out.

Next on the voyager series coming all the way from Pakistan is the official blog of zeest's band.
Till then keep commenting and keep blogging.

happy Blogginggg!!!
