I know there are angers all the way, we are shouting at the govt. and the bureaucracy, and pointing fingers to all except ourselves. What I believe, we are equally responsible for the mess we are in at the moment, agree or not.
If you dont agree, simply read the news how a stranded woman tourist and her daughter were raped and murdered in Gaurikund area (Ghondhlu Pani village under Ukhimath police station) of Kedarnath valley, incidents of harrowing activities of stealing from the dead — chopping off fingers to steal jewellery...and on and on....
However, this is not the time and place to show the anger...lets stand for our fellow citizens...
Here are few things that we all can do (I am doing), and I request you to join -
Sending Relief materials to Uttarakhand (through Goonj and Uday Foundation):
If you want to send some relief material to Uttarakhand, you may send those to the NGOs addresses, or contact me; I am sending the third batch of essential materials tomorrow. The fourth batch, hopefully, will be sent by Wednesday Next week.
