        Good to hear that, now that a new govt. is at helm hope things change for Kedarnath and we recover speedily from the tragedy. I've found a good book which mixes the fiction elements with the real events of what happened on the tragic day(s) in Kedarnath tragedy: The Himalayan Tsunami: : amzn.to/2ndgvNa
