  1. A mournful incident which has claimed life’s
    of two school children and held several others injured . This sporadic monsoon has created havoc in several parts of UP,Bihar,Assam and most of the NE states.
    As per skymet (private weather forecaster) report , there will be heavy downpour until July 15 in Ganga and Brahmaputra belt and it’s neighbouring regions.
    NDMA and SDMA ,ought to be act in holistic manner with spreading awareness and alerting people about landsline prone zone.
    Since monsoon is a natural phenomenon ,the intensity may differ periodically at different places, hence ,it is governments legal obligation to provide preventive measures for such disasters.
    The government authorities must learn lessons from such pitiful incidences and act practically to prevent such consequences.
    With the people’s awareness and their participation will provide an optimistic outcome in controlling such incidents.
