Vedanta Khushi: 'Nanhi' is getting Married

This is a story sent from Bihar by Rajshekhar Pandey, who is a fisherman and has 3 boats. He got married in 1989 and has 2 daughters and a son. His story has been narrated by one of his friend from Patna, who is a VEDANTA KHUSHI member.

Bihar has been prone to floods due to heavy rains and high discharge of water in Nepal. Kosi, Gandak, Burhi Gandak, Bagmati, Kamla Balan, Mahananda and Adhwara Group of rivers originate in Nepal and carry high discharge and this drops it down in the plains of Bihar. As about 65% of catchments area of these rivers falls in Nepal/Tibet and only 35% lies in Bihar, the State is worse flood hit in India.

This is a story of Rajshekhar who found a girl in a basket in 1991 Bihar Floods.

Rajshekhar says, in 1991, Kosi was at its devastating floods and many families and houses were vanished. Once the rivers became a little normal he went on his boat for fishing and found a basket floating. Pulling the basket near, he was surprised to see a small girl of about 2-3 years sleeping in the basket. He lifted the girl from the basket and realized that she had fever. He came back immediately and told his wife about this girl and both took her to the doctor. With about a week of medication the girl was fine.

When asked about her name, she informed that her mother called her NANHI but she does not know her father’s name or village. Rajshekhar could make out that she was a Bihari girl and due to heavy floods NANHI got separated from her parents.
