"We used to race up to the top of the stupa and that too 'nange paon' (bare feet). We used to go to the market then. But as I saw it on a TV channel, it is just flat ground today -it is disastrous.”

There are organizations that are getting together things and sending them in bulk. I am working with them and with the hospitals that are sending medication.”
