The water has started to recede and the rains have eased. Hands that had helped during the massive floods continue to do so. The floods were devastating. It was the worst flood that the state had ever witnessed.

The loss to life, property, festivals, work cannot be explained the figures are huge. Food is not available, the families have been dislocated, even the basic necessities continue to be scarce, people are still in rescue camps. The struggle however does not end here, the after effects of the flood is equally devastating.

It may seem to be that once the water recedes and the rains stop things will be fine but it is not so, the situation after the floods is equally painful. With the outbreak of monsoons floods or no floods, the cases of several diseases caused by the mosquitoes are witnessed.
