The aftermath of torrential monsoon rains and cyclones has thrown life out of gear across India. Floods have inundated parts of Assam, Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Gujarat, leading to loss of life and property.

With 300 villages and more than one lakh people affected, Assam is yet to witness a dry patch. Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA) reported that the Brahmaputra river was flowing above the danger mark. Worst affected by floods are the upper-Assam districts of Lakhimpur, Golaghat and Morigaon.

Torrential rains lashed Uttarakhand leading to landslides in the hill districts and disrupting water and power supply across the state. The main road between Haridwar and Delhi was blocked too.

On the other hand, incessant rains have led to a flood-like situation in some parts of Rajasthan including Karauli in Bharatpur district, where many people were shifted to temporary shelters.

In Madhya Pradesh, 23 out of 51 districts were inundated leading to the death of 35 people and several missing. Many people left their homes to stay at relief camps. Bhopal saw the largest number of flood affected people in the state, including districts Panna and Jabalpur.

    Rajasthan and other vulnerable States have also been impacted. This Vedic astrology writer had , however , alerted against massive floods and connected serious problems in Gujrat , Rajasthan and other vulnerable States through article “ 2017 – an opportune year for India with major worrisome concerns in February-March and August-September” issued widely to Indian news media last year in October and November 2016. The text of the alert covering near and in August-September 2017 , reads like this : “ near and in August-September times, look to be presenting health hazards or epidemics. Floods and landslides may generate huge worry. Plants and crops including food crops could fall short of normal expectations. Huge dangerous super sea storm in coastal areas could likely lash at , among others , Gujrat leaving a distinct mark of devastation on the land”. Going by news reports as on 25 July 2017 , it can be said that the alert has been meaningful.
