Ganga Rages in Dev Bhoomi!!

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Lord Shiva getting submerged by The Ganga at Rishikesh--The Statue is 20 ft. high

The Raging Ganga

The Alaknanda--a Tributary of The Ganga in full spate

The Mandakini--another Tributary at Kedarnath Shrine

The Devastated Shrine

The Indian Army Jawans forming a Chain

The Human Chain formed by The Indian Army

Rescue Operations

The Traffic stuck on the Slopes

These are a few pictures downloaded from The internet for my SP Friends.Please pray for the Region as another Cloudburst is expected in a day or two.There are thousands of people trapped in the Mountains and though heroic and valiant Indian Army Jawans are working non-stop,it is still a race against Time if the second Disaster hits as predicted!!

    I saw a bit of this on the news!
Many good wishes for the people of the villages. While it is very sad to lose the shrines, they are replaceable and perhaps will be well blessed by the gods when rebuilt.

    Between the fires and the floods, there is so much destruction in the world right now. I am praying for everyone. Stay safe, my friend.
