Children in India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands who lost their parents and dear ones in the December 2004 tsunami are yet to get over their trauma, says a new report.//

"Battered Islands" - the report of a fact-finding committee comprising researchers Shivani Chaudhary and Enakshi Ganguly Thukral - says a large number of children continue to suffer because of poor rehabilitation efforts.

Selvi, another resident of the islands, lost both her parents in the disaster and now lives in South Andaman with her uncle and aunt, who allegedly ill-treat her. Selvi broke down one day in the church and said she did not want to live with her uncle and aunt.

Thukral told IANS: "The sufferings of the tsunami-affected children in these islands are not yet over. There is an urgent need to take care of their rehabilitation."

"Selvi and many children who lost their parents started behaving abnormally after the tragedy," the study says.

The government and to some extent even NGOs have been insensitive to the requirements of children while carrying out rehabilitation work, the authors of the report say.

For example, in a large number of cases, toilets have been constructed far from the shelters where children stay. In some cases it is a five minute to eight minute walk from their shelters.

The children find it difficult to use the toilets at night because they are scared to walk in the dark.

The report also points out that the education of these children has been disrupted. "There are complaints that teachers do not take regular classes and the quality of teaching is also poor," the
