We were distributing food packets to the flood affected in Somepur. We heard a gut-wrencing scream. “The scream was so loud, it drowned out all the sounds around her” and all. I ran to the polythene tent. A woman with blank look sat there. What I heard from the women surrounding her,” Her baby son was flushed away that fateful night when the river water gushed inside her home . She recollects the terrifying scene and screams like this. I hugged her and took her out. I asked my friends to continue with distribution and drove her to the psychiatrist.
