Lost home

"Our house, our fresh water pond and the protective trees are lost forever". Gobardha Mondal says while sitting on the ruined wall that used to constitute the family's house. When cyclone Aila struck a year ago all their property was flooded and destroyed. "The government plan to build a wall here but it takes time. When one is built another one is destroyed, all we can do is hope and keep building" he says, with a smile.
