Anurag Behar: A day on the road4 min read 08 Jan 2014, 08:50 PM IST
The schools opened up three-four weeks after the deluge and to operate, they have to manage a range of activities. All of it is simple elsewhere, but not there
Till about four years ago, I lived with severe acrophobia. Garhwal cured me. I don’t understand how, but driving for hours on narrow, crumbling roads, with 400-600m drops on one side, did this. The cure was tested to its limits two months ago by Jagmohan. He took Anant and me to villages in the mountains that had been completely cut-off by the deluge in June 2013. The roads to these villages were being repaired, but it was taking time. The purpose of the visit was to see how the schools in theses villages had coped with months of tenuous connection to the rest of the Uttarkashi district.
