Back in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s Mtv was still all about the music and played music videos 90% of the time. Among the original programming that the dudes at the tv station had was ‘MTV Unplugged’ and I used to be a huge fan of the concept.
This one is back from 90-91 when Poison were at their finest form. Here’s Every Rose Has It’s Thorn.
A boat cruise on the beautiful Thekkady lake is usually a treasonable memory for tourists in Kerala’s Idukki district. But the experience turned into one of despair and mourning as a boat carrying an estimated 75 tourists and boat crew went down, killing many. None of the passengers was known to be wearing a life jacket.
By 8pm, a tv news channel were informed that 23 bodies were recovered and that they expected many more to be located. From one of the sites I was able to get a non-confirmed status update.
No: Passengers about 76 (People from Maharashtra, Bangalore , Tamil Nadu And Kerala, Few number of foreigners too). Current Death Toll : 32 (2 Foreigners – 2 children, 18 woman) & (2 from Mumbai & 2 from Tamil Nadu). Rescued : About 40 (Few in Critical Situation Rushed in to near by Hospitals).
About 10 are considered to be missing. My heart goes out to the unfortunate ones & their families.
