“यहाँ आता  कौन है ? इतने साल मे राहत की पहली नांव देखी है..” (Who comes here? In all these years this is the first time I have seen a relief boat) says Lorik Manjhi from Dumri, Champaran (Bihar) on seeing us.

While it is an annual reality for millions across India, we hardly hear and talk about this annual disaster. This year too when more than 2 million people are rendered homeless and thousands of villages completely devastated in parts of Assam, West Bengal, Odisha, Bihar, U.P and Uttarakhand, the news hasn’t been able to get the headline space.
