Home Water is life Ocean About Tsunamika

There was a little girl, Tsunamika, who lived on the ocean floor. She had never seen the sun, the moon are the stars because no light ever reached the ocean floor. She lived by herself and was very lonely.

One day, a starfish came to her and said, “Have you ever seen the sun?”

“No” said the little girl. The starfish fold the girl that she must see the sun some day. The girl looked for the sun everywhere but did not find it. She asked a sage, who lived in a giant conch, about the sun. The sage told her that for 21 full days she must think of the sun and nothing else.

The girl sat on a rock under the sea and thought of the sun. On the 21st day, the ocean floor shook powerfully and threw her upwards. She went up…..up…..up in the water till she reached the surface of the ocean. There she saw the sun, bright and big.

The sun asked her what she wanted. She told him that she wanted a lot of friends. “So is it,” said the sun. Then, there came a giant wave that took her into the land and when she came off the wave, she saw people crying. So she went to one of the crying women and asked her why she was crying.

The woman said, “I lost my daughter in the waves”. Tsunamika said, “Please accept my love.” “Will you be my daughter?” asked the woman. Tsunamika said, “Oh, yes!” and stayed with the woman.

A little boy came along and asked, “Tsunamika, will you be my friend?” She said, “Of course!” Then more and more children became her friends and she spread her love in every home.

And Tsunamika looked up at the sun and smiled. She realized that she could give her love to all the people of the world.

The doll, Tsunamika, was created by Upasana, a group in Auroville, Pondicherry, in response to the sorrow felt by many people after the tsunami had hit many parts of Tamilnadu in December 2004. Tsunamika and her story brought a smile to those who met her; transforming the bitter memories of the tsunami into something creative, innocent, simple, sweet and empowering.
