Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee has sent a letter to Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf conveying condolences on the heavy loss of life and property in the killer quake of October 8.
"India has faced similar natural disasters in the recent past. The Gujarat earthquake of 2001 and the massive tsunami of 2004 have led to the creation of an effective disaster management team in India.
"This is an occasion when our people can work together in the service of our brothers and sisters affected by nature's wrath," he said in the letter released in New Delhi on Monday.
