Village Floods Report; First Account


First thanks to BSNL , who provided this Internet wireless facility , that I can write my Blog with the first man account of Floods around my village Kadampara.


I am now sitting at home , ready to face the ultimate disaster. The Floods of Kathjodi river, the main tributary of Mahanadi River is going to come with in some hours from now. The Radio Warning on All India Radio is making all there best efforts to alarm the local public about the coming floods. Now at this moment of time , Most of the Mahanadi is flooded and we are in the waiting list, unlike railway tickets, no one wants to be Confirmed. Let me tell you that the 42 Mauja, or the Bayalish Mauja as we called is a island on the river kathjodi, consist of 42 villages in all. My village Kadampara is the 2nd from the River basin and the most hard hit one if the situations goes worse.. With the birds eye view of the River Kathjodi, the River is already on the last danger level and we may face the Floods very soon, by this evening. People are experienced with the 2001 floods and have the insight to make there best efforts to avoid situations like that of Bihar.

Its 1.23pm and I was writing this blog, while the family member were engaged in packing essential goods for survival, even my mother is shouting from the back to make the arrangements instead of gluing to the Computer. People in the villages are dragging there livestock to the higer points. Obvious reasons to mention that this is one of the emergencies that this generation of village youths has to face. There is only one rule that is to be followed , i.e like in WAR they say Every one is for Himself, I had spoken to the youths in my own village regarding there own efforts in making themselves safe, so that in the coming ours we could have the time to evacuate the Children's,Elderly persons and Livestock to safer places, although the process are started .

With all that told I was going to make my contribution and a break for the time being . Hope I will be available for the next post.

Hope the best for the People.

Dhanush DIY for Ramayan Play for Children

While the CORONA Loackdown is on , The Serial Ramayana makes a mark in every person , even the children's here in India. The realization of the fact is that they have already seen Ramayana several Times on TV but not as satisfactory as they are seeing it now on Doordarshan. May be the Simplicity of the 1988 Ramayana by Ramanad Sagar is best for them to Understand . The Kids insisted to create Ramayana scene , And I had try it out with creating 5 Bows and 20 Arrows with the help of Bamboos , Jute thread and Cardboard Papers from the Amazon Purchased items package materials. Take a Look at the Video Below  on How its done ..... The Making Of Ramayana Bows and Arrows from Bamboo (Video)

Essence of trust.

Little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter, "Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don't fall into the river." The little girl said, "No, Dad. You hold my hand." "What's the difference?" Asked the puzzled father. "There's a big difference," replied the little girl. "If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go." In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond. So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold urs... This message is too short..........but carries a lot of Feeling ! Current Mood: Relaxed Current Song: "I can be your Hero baby .."
