After returning from school children play at The Government Home for Tsunami Children in Cuddalore...Each child affected by the tsunami had to adapt to changed circumstances and cope with emotions no one in their family could have possibly anticipated. Younger children seemed to adjust more quickly than their older siblings. And, while grief rendered some silent, in others it provoked a real sense of anger. Some became withdrawn while others craved attention and resorted to disruptive behavior. For all children, the experience of losing a parent seems to have strengthen the bond they shared with their brothers and sisters. ..Photo: Tom Pietrasik.Tamil Nadu, India.February 2005
