Trivandrum: Eight-year old Nandana, daughter of playback singer KS Chitra, died earlier today at Dubai. The tragedy struck when the child fell into a swimming pool Even though she was taken to a hospital, she could not be revived.

Chithra and her husband Vijayashankar were blessed with Nandana after nearly fifteen years of marriage. She was born soon after the release of the film “Nandanam”. Thus, the name Nandana. In one of her interviews she mentioned thus, “While recording the song – karmugil varnante chundil, I actually cried my heart out to the Lord. Soon after He gifted me with Nandana.” 
The untimely tragedy has left the entire state shell-shocked. The spontaneous outburst of grief was evident, what with messages and tweets flying thick and fast over the internet.

The singer is in Dubai for the A R Rahman Special Hits concert. – a musical treat to celebrate the compositions of Rahman.

the word "freak accident" looks very odd... shouldnt we be treating the incident a little more subtly... i understand that the usage of the word is right..but it still looks verry much out of place. Just a reader's opinion.
