Kosi Maa, do not stray

Finally, I found a blogger who is blogging from the place itself. Thank you, Sudipto.

Its a blog by one of our friends Pushyamitra who is there in North-east Bihar region and writing his experience everyday.
Please visit http://biharbaadh.blogspot.com/ to have an account of true mayhem.

The disaster in North-eastern Bihar is not just a flood, but its a serious natural calamity of changing of path of a river. This calamity has caused 40 lakh people displaced and homeless for about two years, until the dam is repaired and river goes back to its old path. In such condition unless each District of whole country reaches out for helping aid the rehabilitation of displaced is not possible. There is no such campaign running to support or provide aids to the people as in previous natural calamities. Possibly because of declaration of Central Government of providing aid of Rs1000 Crore. Though, this package for 24 lakh displaced persons would be very insufficient, as this also includes the repair of dam and relief campaign. In such case, there is less than Rs.2,000/- per person would be available for relief and rehabilitation. This becomes our responsibility to help them and shows our humanity towards other human being.
