Bihar Flood Relief Work in progress!

Posted by Rewa Smriti on September 11, 2008

Let’s read about the heroism of our navodayans.

I am at IITK for the last few days, and tonight I am leaving for Delhi.

Today morning by mistake I left my mobile at my room. When I came back to my room, I found three or four missed calls from navodaya brothers Anand and Saqib. Both of them wanted to share some good news with me. I called back Anand and he was very much excited to tell me about the news. I just knocked the door of google bhai and found the relevant link. Thank you google bhaiya! Read the news quoted below.

The catastrophic floods in the east Indian state of Bihar resulted in many deaths and much hardship, but the suffering could have been much worse if it was not for the efforts of some valiant individuals.

Tens of thousands of people have been forced to take shelter in hundreds of crammed relief camps where food and clean water are in short supply.

One such hero was Anand Mohan, who has just graduated from India’s premier engineering institute, the Indian Institute of Technology [IIT] and is set to join a multinational mining company in Australia in mid-October.

After graduating from IIT, he planned to return to Sharsha town in Bihar for a week to say good-bye to his parents.

Sharsha was among the five districts hardest-hit in Bihar.

Although efforts were made to provide food and shelter to hundreds of displaced people just behind Sharsha’s railway station, supplies soon ran out. To read more click on the link http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7606185.stm

And then I called back to Saqib. He has given me another very good news that two more of our teams are going to Supoul for the same cause. In this team we will be having doctors as well. Saqib who himself is doing MBBS in AMU, is coordinating this team and leaving for Bihar on 12th.

Really we are proud of you brothers. Anand and Shaqib, you are simply doing a great job. We feel happy when we see that our help reaches to the needy on time!

I had a meeting with navodaya alumni who are studying at IITK, and it was a good meeting with them. They are really doing good work here in IITK. To read more click here on navodaya.net
