  1. What a tragedy… 2 small kids have lost their parents at single go. None should go thru’ such situation ever. I feel sorry for the kids. Nano is only fine to go in and around the city limits, but not built for long travel. May god rest the departed souls in peace.

  2. Is there anyway I can reach out to the kids if they do not have a guardian by now or do not have anyone to take care of. Upon confirmation, I can provide my complete details to legally proceed further to bring them to my house.
    Also, please don’t get me wrong I’ll not respond to any criticism or to any other comments With the exception of MR team and I’ll share my details only with officials. Sorry if it sounds rude, nowadays few people sees everything as show off and creating a negative vibe, if those kids got a guardian or even if it’s no way possible to adopt them with my family, I would like to go anonymous that’s all.
    For now I can only say, I’m from Chennai and IT professional.
    Thank you in advance to the Team
