VOICES FROM GROUND ZERO ‘We survived on water flowing over the dead’


Indore: For the Sisodiyas in Indore, it was a nightmare they'll never forget.
    The Sisodiya family and other members of the group who arrived at the Indore railway station on Sunday, recalled:
"We were stranded at a dharmashala in Kedarnath for four days with no food and water. There was no help from the administration. We even drank water that flowed over dead bodies." People stranded at the place were finally airlifted by private helicopters. Two boys from the group died during the ordeal. "We saw people looting money, jewellery from dead bodies. It was total chaos and everything was dreadful there," Rajal Sisodiya said.
'Our Hotel Got Swept Away'
    
The Pancholi family from Indore are among the lucky ones who successfully of
fered prayers at the shrines at Gangotri, Yamunotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath just before the deluge. "On the way back from Badrinath heavy rain and landslides forced us to take shelter at a three-storey hotel in Pandukeshwar. To our horror we found the hotel building shaking and a hospital building behind the hotel collapsing," S S Pancholi said. "When we progressed towards Govind Ghat-Hemkunt Sahib, we saw the hotel where we stayed being swept away by flood waters," said Nikita, an MBBS student.
Woman Lived On A Bus
Nashik: A woman, who was stranded during the Kedarnath yatra, recalled her ordeal of living in a bus for three days to survive the nightmare. "Roads and bridges were washed away in the flash flood and we were not aware of the situation. We lived in a bus for three days on biscuits," said Priya Bagul. WITH AGENCY INPUTS
