To answer bluntly, NO - WE ARE NOT.

Their response is far more organised and their team works well. Under our governmental dispensation, we can never cope with such a situation. Besides our country is too large. At best, if such an eventuality were to happen, it could be localised to certain region. Politics will play a role even in relief operations also. Favouritism will come to fore, depending upon which party rules in Centre and which in the State.
