The disaster struck in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh has been so touchingly inscribed. By the grace of God ninety labourers were managed to come out expect two who were trapped inside. It was happy that finally the two workers were rescued for the nine days continious work of the rescue team. Thank to God and thank to you for sharing this incedental poem.

Of course, it was a difficult operation but the courage of the persons trapped inside the tunnel and those of the rescue team is commendable which made this miracle happen. Thanks, Kumarmani ji.

Such a miracle that all the workers were rescued. To survive for nine days in such claustrophobia shows in itself how tough-minded the men were.
