FFL Flood

I have always been fascinated of Rishikesh, of the sadhus here, the stories of Ganga and the big Lord Shiva statue.

I booked a room right beside the Ganges, on the edge of cliff. It was raining cats and dogs that day, the power went off. It was pitch dark
The wind was howling.

Suddenly, I felt my room going down, I realized the river is flooding and taking away the land my hotel is resting on.
I was found by the Indian army, after 2 days.

Now, I write this after 2 years sitting in a similar room & staring out at the river that is now looking so calm

  1. A lot of action in a few words. Do you have any experience of the Ganges? Nicely done.

    1. Hi Jenny

      Thanks for dropping by

      As a matter of fact, I do happen to be in one of the major floods that happened 2 years back in India. Luckily I wasn't stuck into it or pulled by the raging current of the Ganges

  2. After being saved it takes time to recover...

    1. It sure does, its an experience for life
