    DANG, Aug 28: Two weeks ago when the family he had feared was washed away by the flooded Babai river returned to him alive, Khuita Chaudhari of Motipur village was the happiest man. His wife Kanika and son Motilal had clung on to a tree overnight to survive the mighty flood that wreaked havoc in the region. However, with survival now becoming very hard for lack of shelter and enough food, Chaudhari feels life is worth living only for those who are better-off.

No sooner do clouds cover the sky on any given day than he begins to worry. If that happens during the night, sleep becomes a secondary consideraation as rushing to a safe zone if necessary becomes paramount. The Chaudhari family was allowed to sleep at a local school for a few days. Chaudhari thought that the government would be thinking about victims like himself. But they did not come with any support other than a few packets of instant noodles. In addition, the school has asked him to vacate the premises.
