Leaflets From My Life - 26th July 2005 Mumbai floods 1

Rating: 5.0

Though sixteen years have passed by,
I still cannot erase from my memory,
The floods that came in like a Tsunami wave
On 26th July 2005 into Mumbai.
It's a date unforgettable!
Those who have experienced the 2005 floods,
Would comprehend its fierce intensity and
The severe destruction caused by its raging waters.

Until and unless a frightening experience hits you,

You think of it as a distant happening!

An heaviest occurrence that no one would ever forget, a historical gem, but a greatest wink for the government to take care better for the care of the great Megacity.

I still remember the sorrow in your eyes whenever you spoke about this event. You were forced to let go years of hardwork like books you wrote and the dance materials. It really inspires me how strongly you have handled yourself by being positive even in one of the most difficult situation
