One of the first questions I would receive, no matter where I was in Tamilnadu, was if I could speak any Tamil. My reply was always good for a laugh. I’d start with the three words I knew well – vannakkam (hello), nandri (thank you), aamaa (yes) – and whomever I was talking to would let out a chuckle. These were the words any tourist knew, and even though I’d been in the southern Indian state for a nearly month, I hadn’t managed to pick up much more.

Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010. No matter where you were at that time last year, you probably saw some of the images coming out of the nation that day, as over 500,000 Haitians were either killed or injured and 1,000,000 people became homeless.
