(1/21/05, Samiyarpettai, India) The Dalit Freedom Network group traveled to Samiyarpettai - an hour away by car from Pondicherry. There was a funeral in town for Kulanthai Velu, 70, a man who was hit by a bus the day before. His wife, Navanitham, to the left with her head thrown back, was severly traumatized in the tsunami when the wave swept her away. She was saved by a family friend, but the shock of thinking she would die brought on severe migraines and she had to be hospitalized for a week. She was just released when her husband was killed and the grief is overwhelming to her. Her family and friends fear that she will not recover. A group of women gather around her before her husband is buried. (Judy Walgren, Rocky Mountain News)
