Writer Statement

I Wrote this story from my experience. It’s a true story. The story based on my father. On November 12, 1970, a devastating cyclone causing tidal wave killed more than one million people living in the coastal region. At that time many families of my village were wiped out. Many family lost their relatives, parents and siblings and became destitute. One of my sisters got lost in that tidal wave. She was the only child of my father.
None of us were born then. Till I grew up I saw my father visiting different places to look for my lost sister. Whenever he heard that a girl was found in a certain place; My father used to run to that place. I still feel Dad is waiting for his lost daughter. I have realised how much that tidal wave has affected our family. In this story I have tried to bring up how a beautifully arranged family is destroyed due to a natural disaster.
