Yesterday was a black day for our region.
25 villagers from our neighbouring village, Rankikala lost their lives as they were returning after migrant labour in neighbouring Bihar. There is hardly any newspaper which gave the full details. If it had happened with some well known people and in a town/city, you would have had much more details.
We had gone to console the families who lost their loved ones.
The snaps and details are below . . .
|The crowd was after where the leaders were going . . .|
|More crowds . . .|
|The locals had blocked the National Highway . . .|
|This autorikshaw contains 5 bodies . . . a father and 4 children. The mother is admitted in Patna . . .|
|The local Member of Parliament, Mr. Inder Singh Namdhari|
|Bodies being loaded into a tractor for the final journey|
|This is 11 members of the same family.|
Interestingly, there was nobody to console. The remaining family members had accepted the grim reality without much fuss.
Everybody was busy finding out how much money each of the survivors would receive from the government.
More on this tragedy in a later post . . .
