Appeal to Help and Save Lives, Uttarakhand Disaster

Every year as the spring descends on the hills of Uttarakhand    preparations for the oncoming “Yatra” season commence. For the hoteliers, local shop keepers, travel agents,  mule owners, the yatra season is the most awaited event of the year. All the shrines (Char Dhams comprising of Badri-Nath, Kedar Nath, Gangotri  & Yamnotri) and Hemkund Sahib  start opening and by 15th of May the season is on.

This year also the most awaited time came and all seemed to be well when around 15th June, the weather changed. The rains came down as if with vengeance and in four days of incessant rains breaking century old records the Uttrakhand was in a  state of deluge. Large scale unprecedented damage of man and material has taken place, particularly around famous Kedar Nath Shrine (constructed in 8th Century , overseen by Adi Shankracharya)  .
The whole  world is  watching  with  shocks and surprise that  how nature  can  be  so crude to innocent lives killing  thousands of  devotees ,  misplacing  families coming from all over India. People are  still struggling  for  their lives  by eating grass and  drinking rain water, authorities  are helpless  to reach their.

We at SFID (Society For Inclusive Development) and INDIACSR (India’s Popular CSR News Network have been deeply moved by the calamity that has struck this Himalayan Region of Uttarakhand. Thousands of people have lost their lives, hundreds are missing, immense damage has taken place to the houses, their animals and livelihood.

It will be a marathon effort to put the lives of all the affected people back on rails. Our heart goes out to all these people who have suffered  in this calamity.  Though the Government is trying to do its bit with such major damage, we feel that it will not be sufficient.
