Books and words cannot describe disaster. Only those who have gone through the pain and agony can visualize what disaster really means. The Earthquake & Tsunami disaster of 2004 left an unprecedented impression on those who were involved-taking many lives and scarring the lives, forever, of those who survived it Many were physically bruised and many battered in their thoughts with Psychosis and Post Traumatic stress disorder. This article is the personal ring-side experience of an Anaesthesiologist posted at INHS Dhanvantari, who saw it all happen. This article provides an insight into how it happened, how such a calamity can be managed and future lessons that can be learned in the chapter of Disaster management.
