Prayers for trapped minersYou may have seen the news of the 15 miners trapped in a coal mine in Meghalaya. I have been following the news regularly and am praying for their successful rescue. I recalled the rescue of the group of 12 kids from a flooded cave in Thailand.
I have been reading media reports of the State Government's very slow and abysmal response to the incident, which conveys a lot of needless delay in acquiring professional help and requisite equipment, such as pumps with higher horsepower to pump out the water in the mine. Yesterday, finally, the rescue operations got scaled up and professional divers from our Navy were brought in. They are going all out to locate the miners. Hope they are successful and everyone trapped is safely brought out.
