When the tsunami hit the Indian coast on a bright Sunday morning on December 26, 2004, it shocked India and the world. It was as if the sea had washed away hubs of human activity in an instant.
In India's far eastern outpost, the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, the 9.0 magnitude earthquake under the Indian Ocean killed 10,136 people. The Car Nicobar Islands were among the worst affected.The Indian Air Force lost 116 personnel at its devastated Car Nicobar base.
With a 100-day deadline, seven Indian Air Force officers, including then Wing Commander Nitin Sathe, and a group of dedicated IAF personnel undertook the tough task of rebuilding the IAF's Car Nicobar air base.
Ten years on, now an Air Commodore, Nitin Sathe reveals how the IAF, with courage and determination, brought its Car Nicobar base back to life.
A FEW GOOD MEN AND THE ANGRY SEA is the inspiring story about how human endeavor on a tiny corner of the earth overcame one of the greatest natural disasters in history.
