A Photo feature by GMB Akash

“I've been waiting here six hours for water but still nobody arrived with water” said Abdul Raman around 60 of Dacop, Shamnagar showing his empty water jar. He said again: “We had everything just before three days ago but only within 15-20 minutes devastation of cyclone we become pauper. Now we don't even have place to bury the dead bodies.” He added: “We haven't eaten anything for two days and we don't know how long we can survive without any food and water.” It has become a common and familiar scene in the affected areas that people have been waiting in the streets in queues for food and water.

These people lost everything literally in recent cyclone hits which destroys all the necessary belongings of life. Now the status of their life is most vulnerable. They are crawling to life with all their strength of soul .Even though they are smashed & destroyed heavily but still they are unbeaten like a real survival of the fittest.
