    Well said Mahesh.
    People ,here, are still struggling for survival, let alone progress.
    I pray to God, that may all the affected families and individuals get over all of this and may they live well and their children get all the opportunities they deserve. May none of these affected children end up in child labor. Conditions don't look good, neither the future. People must realize the need of a huge humanitarian efforts, great steps and well leadership. We all must focus on this greater cause and must donate in every way we can, even a smile to the affected will be a great donation, a hug, a word of inspiration and courage build up.
