Chipping in . . .

Compassion towards fellow mankind. This is one thing that the Tsunami has brought to the fore. Relief, in cash and kind, have been pouring in from all quarters.

Ferrari's Michael Schumacher has donated a mammoth $10 million. Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova has donated $10 thousand. Carlos Moya donated his prize money at the Chennai Open. All for one cause - relief to the Tsunami victims.

Now it is the turn of cricket stars to chip in. An exhibition ODI match was played at Melbourne between World XI and Asia XI today and the proceedings of the match donated for Tsunami relief. More than 14.6 million Australian Dollars was raised during the event. Every run was worth 1000 Australian Dollars. Prominent cricket personalities like Sachin, Lara, Ponting, Cairns and Gilchrist participated in the event.

Amidst all the gloom there is just one thing which brings happiness - the reaction of the world towards the Tsunami victims. The Tsunamis seem to have washed ashore a great deal of humanity.
