Pintu, prakash, prabhat, and vikash from our aid team and all 3 members of coordination group Sanjay, Shankar and myself were in this meeting.  We have consolidated data of our work and final figure was more than our imagination. We have expected less bcz it was scattered.

It was happened due to your moral, technical and monitory support and our team’s efforts, dedication and commitment. It is continue also and at last December,08 we shall give you a new picture of our situation  bcz this month a big group from chennai is coming to me. Dr. urvi and priya are also coming here. Meanwhile a lot of our friends from aid india and outside also have come here and they gave a lot of supports in different kind. Balji sampath (Our secretary), Selva, Rachit, Sonia, Nikhil, Nikunj (aid delhi), Oliver, kotishwaran (Aid TN), Maharana (Aid Orissa), sanjeev, rajesh narayan, vivek Prasad, Greg bentoly (all from Delhi), Dr. sai laxmi from soija, Chennai, a taem of lions club Chennai in which Dr. Dr. R. Subramaniya Bharathiyar, Dr. Ram Babbu, Dr. Arul Kumar, Dr. Gopalakrishnan, Dr. K. C. Ramalingam, Dr. Guna Nithi, J. Rajakumar, N. Suresh kumar, M. Bakiayaraj, K. Velu are member, a team from American School of Bombay in which Matt Duffy, Russell Bell, Lisa Alsch are members are came here from out of our state. Within state Sanjay kumar state coordinator, Pratham, Arvind kumar from Pratham, Manish kumar from Pratham, sanjeev from Pratham, a team of Sunai group, a jambo jet group of Pratham are with us from beginning and support each other. Mr. Anshu gupta and reena from Goonj were in our deep association. They support a lot at different kinds. This data is result of them.

As you know I have come here alone first with only my 2 friend from Patna. Whole planning is based on this friend circle team and now we have a network from dist to tola where we have done some work. We are proud of our team bcz we have some specialties. So we can go village without any problem. First time when material distribution was being snatched somewhere, that time we are going to villages by boat without fear and people keep us on their own hands. When reports are coming from somewhere that used cloths are not excepted by people and supaul administration gave direction not to distribute used cloths,  at that time we are distributing worst cloths also and people are accepted it bcz it is need of remote villages and few people want to go there.

In this time so many events also happened. So many boat accidents happened. Our team leader of Supaul Rajesh also accident one time and he saved himself by swimming. People carry their motorcycle by boat also. I saw some accident in which motorcycle also submerged in water. Some relatives of our activists are dead also by submerging in water.

I have visited villages a lot. I have seen situation from kusaha to beldaur. In the way different parts of supaul, madhepura and saharsa have been visited by me also. It is impossible to describe all things that I have feel personally. I feel, each person is a separate story in himself and each village is separate history in itself.

We got deep affection, regards and honor from villagers and public. But we feel some pain full experiences also.

  • Some group understand beggar to people and behave like this.
  • Somebody understand beggar to us also and he supplies me materials as their attitude.
  • I saw a lot of cheating, corruption and inhuman behavior with sufferer people.
  • Some groups want to robber dignity and self honor of sufferer people.
  • Some people can play politics on dead body.

But this scale is less. I saw a chain of people who are in queue to support sufferers with full humanity, emotion, sentiment and honor. This scale is very high.

In last we are compelled to praise of patience and daring of sufferer people. Their house is cutting by water and he is viewing by standing on the bank of this cutting. Everything is snatching and he is mute. More than lacks people are killed in this occurrence and nobody is asking who is responsible for this event. Nature? Leader? Officers? Public? ……………………………………………….

Our some friends who returned from here are doing a lot. Oliver, selva, rachit, Sonia are helping our team in different manner. Matt, Russel and lissa from ASB are also doing better efforts for here. Apoorva from delhi is also supporting heartly. Our friends from US are in my touch directly and they are standing near us in this sorrow time. Priya Ranjan -team, Nirveek, Aisa, Avnit, from Seattle team, Rashmi etc (sorry friends, it is difficult to recognize all friend from here. Plz donot mind) are in regular contact. Dr Mohan Bhagat is also blessing me regularly.

Rajeev Ranjan from Hong Kong (Priya Ranjan’s friend) also supported and Bhawna from Australia always ask our Hal- Chal. Aruna Rodrigues from chhatisgarh also supported us ( Priya Ranjan’s initiation).

Now we are working on some issues like

  • Winter kits distribution specially blankets
  • Medical camps
  • General cloths distribution
  • Some needy household kits according to most demand
  • Coordination with some groups
  • Helping some groups who are coming here with their own objective
  • Children food materials like biscuit and milk powder distribution

We needed something also

  • 1-2 skilled people who can document our efforts. Oliver has done a lot and we are trying our best here also.
  • Other sector skilled persons.
  • Materials for needy person.
  • Fund support

For fund support and managements and technical questions, it will be better to talk with Balaji directly.

In our last meeting, we are thinking to work on 2 more things

  • Rickshaw distribution : we are identifying 15 blocks and thinking if any group supports us, we can distribute 3-4 Hand rickshaw or thela (luggage carrier rickshaw) to each block. It means in first phase 45-60 rickshaws to 60 people for their employment.  Cost of each rickshaw may be Rs. 5000/-. So Money required Rs 225000/- to 300000/- (3 lacks + 25-30 thousands for coordination, carriage and misc exp). So if you are agree with me and want to support for this, you can support.
  • We are thinking to work on solar distribution also. But we have not exercised now. But we can initiate this.

It is also demanding from ground to work on educational activities in this area.

So plz think and reply me and our team.

With Warm Regards

Dharmendra
