Like others, Doctor Rajan's family in Chennai suffered a lot from this catastrophe. Their only daughter Sara, together with their beloved doggy Scooby, lost their way when they went out – the ground floor was submerged with water and there was no way to reach their roof-top. Their parents were out of reach, and no one came to help them as others too were blocked with the same trouble.
They found a big bamboo-made basket to keep themselves floating on water. Sara was brave enough, she was twelve years old, fond of gazing at the night sky filled with stars but now with only thunder and lightning to scare them.
She’d lost all the household belongings and clutched only an electronic transmitter in her hand. It was her birthday gift from her parents. She’d modified it and often liked to dream of another world where she could try to send a message through this transmitter!
On that fateful day, she tried the transmitter again but she shook her head in dismay because the reception was not strong enough. Scooby became afraid, looking forlornly at Sara as he too was familiar with the device.
All of a sudden, a thrashing lightning appeared in front of them and a strange, giant creature appeared! Closing their eyes, they heard a splash, then they realised, that a huge being had taken them into its palm and blown them away within in no time. When they opened their eyes they found themselves on a safe roof top with others who had taken shelter there. All were waiting for dry food and water to be thrown by helicopters. Soon ‘copters came and took them gradually to relief centres.
Later when they met their parents, Sara told them about this miracle. They took it as the "Almighty's Hand" but Sara kissed her lovely transmitter and prayed for the alien who saved her and Scooby's life. To her, it was not a dream, simply an auspicious entity from another world who had helped her.
