Introduction- Sometimes there is a heavy rainfall. Rivers and streams cannot contain all rain water. Then the water overflows their banks. This is called a flood. Sometimes the flood is caused by the melting of snow on the mountains. There are certain parts of the country where floods come every year.

Various factors- Floods are caused by various factors. Whatever the cause of floods, they do great damage. Sometimes, flood water enters villages suddenly. People are taken by surprise. The scenes of floods are fearful. Thousands of villages are washed away. Standing crops are destroyed. Cattle and men are killed. Roads are broken. Travelling becomes a problem. There is a big loss of life and property. Besides, many diseases follow the floods.

Government's efforts- The Government is alert in times of floods. It tries to give relief to the people. It takes both long time and short time measures. Suffering people get food to eat and house to live in. They are taken to some safer places. Their cattle are also given fodder. Doctors with medicines are sent to the flood affected people. Sometimes money is distributed for the construction of their houses.

Flood as an evil- Floods are an evil, no doubt. But they are also useful. They make the land rich. They add to the fertility of the land. The production goes up and farmers are happy. They both lose and gain something.

Need to check the flood- But the floods have to be checked at any cost. In this age of modern river engineering, floods can be stopped. Permanent solution should be found out. The level of river banks can be raised. Canals can be dug to take surplus water. Dams should be made to hold water so projects for checking floods have to be taken up with great interest and determination.

Advent of monsoon- About a fort night has passed from time the monsoon broke out in the country. Newspapers had been publishing news of satisfactory and heavy rains at different places. But there was nothing in particular about rains in our locality. I had gone to Delhi to see my maternal uncle who was ill. I saw from the train, when it was passed over from the railway bridge that the water level of Yamuna has risen very high and next day I heard on Radio in the morning that the Yamuna River has in heavy flood.

Curious to see flood scene- As the news was of great interest to all Delhiwallas many people went to see the flood scene. I too, went to see the flooded areas and if possible, to help the victims. On reaching there, I saw that there a great crowd of spectators. The Government servants the police were trying to check them from going ahead. I stood upon the roof of a bus which was standing there. As far as I could see there was nothing but water and water alone. The water in the river was flowing with great speed. Some big logs of woods were also flowing and floating with a great speed. One side I saw that a thatch was floating down on which goal was sitting. In this way many small and big creatures were seen floating on the water.

Some people were simple looking at all this as an interesting sight. They had no idea about the loss, the floods had caused. But there were others who were greatly pained to see the havoc. According to some reports nearly all the villages, which were situated on the banks of rivers had completely been destroyed. Villagers had been rendered homeless. Property worth crores of rupees had flown into the waters. Above all this, the condition of the numerous people which had been uprooted was pitiable. The problem of giving them shelter was pitiable.

Government help- In the mean time, the Government ambulance car reached there. Some private doctors were also called to give first aid on the spot. Others, whose condition was serious, were removed to the hospital in the ambulance car. This medical help was given to all the needy people.

Conclusion- Besides this, Government also rushed food stuffs to the floods affected areas. In those areas which were surrounded by water from all sides food stuffs were dropped from aero plane. The home minister visited flood affected area from helicopter. After his visit special officers were deputed to give; every possible help to the flood victims.
