This book has been an effort towards realising this thought.

Report
Mercy Corps

The Mercy Corps emergency team in Kashmir was on their way to deliver supplies in Bandipora district when they met Fatima — a 27-year old mother who was making the long trip home after traveling to a nearby village to gather a pot of clean water. She was waiting for a boat to take her across the floodwaters and explained that it can take her up to two hours just to make the trip for water each day.

Report
Times of India

V Kamalakara Rao & Manish,TNN | Oct 15, 2014, 01.07 AM IST

VISAKHAPATNAM: As if the battering by cyclone Hudhud was not enough, the insensitive attitude of some government officials and the struggle for survival on Day 3 saw the otherwise placid Vizagites running out of patience.

Deprived of basics like water, power and food for three days in a row, the struggle of the man on the street intensified. The slow pace of relief work by the authorities came in for harsh criticism from Vizagites, many of whom complained about relief not reaching them.

One year after the cyclone Phailin, the situation remains precarious for many

Balanasi is a place where sand is everywhere—in the street, on the trees, underneath the covers. It reveals the closeness of the village with the water: Balanasi sits on an isthmus that straddles Chilika Lagoon, the largest body of water of its kind in South Asia. Here, nearly every one of the 145 residents squeezes out a living by fishing the nearby waters. In October 2013, Cyclone Phailin hit Balanasi, and pounded the village for hours. In its wake, almost every house was damaged and half of the boats were lost.
