People along the west coast of India are slowly picking up pieces of their lives scattered & shattered by #CycloneTaukte.
Exactly a year ago, on May 20, #CycloneAmphan had hit the Sundarbans. People are still displaced.

@GaonConnectionE's ground report…
Sabita Rani’s last memory of her home was the clock on the wall which told her it was 6 pm. It was on the evening of May 20, 2020, that her home in Hajatkhali village was swept away in the fury of #CycloneAmphan. A year on, she is still displaced.

Khulna, Satkhira & Bagerhat dists on the southwest coast of Bangladesh were the hardest hit by #Cyclone Amphan. About 500,000 people were affected. There are lingering signs of devastation. Villages lie in ruins. Many continue to live on embankments.

Please consider this as a personal plea. Thread below for how I know about them.

Please help this NGO financially. Every rupee matters.…
Last year I came to know about the twin-sisters massively affected by the double whammy of COVID and #CycloneAmphan . I reached the spot when lockdown restrictions lifted slightly, and covered the story of the village for @GaonConnectionE :… .
The people who have been the backbone of support to the affected families were themselves badly hit financially. But they carried on, with help from different quarters. They channeled their efforts over the months and listed their newly-formed organisation as an NGO.

@iitbombay "#CycloneAmphan pulled the monsoon trough over Andaman islands in mid-May, and #CycloneNisarga later pulled the monsoon trough onto the mainland. These cyclones unusually led to the 2020 #monsoon season arriving over India right on time.": Raghu Murtugudde on #LetsTalkWeather
@iitbombay "This year, #MumbaiRains have been mostly during evenings & nights. This may have led many Mumbaikars to think the city hasn’t received a lot of rainfall this season, but statistics indicate otherwise.": @weathercast's @akshaydeoras on #LetsTalkWeather

Adivasi & Minor Forest Produce gatherer women have been hit hard by #Covid19 #lockdown+ #CycloneAmphan in Odisha. In the absence of state support and stopping procurement, Adivasi women are losing out, writes @SorengArchana…
77% of funds under MSP for Minor Forest Produce remain unspent. Half the states have not spent a single rupee from the program. This hurts Adivasi women most as 70% of their income comes from forest produce.

#CycloneAmphan cracked Sundarban's lifelines: embankments. Why are these vital? Thread 👇Maybe we need to be more imaginative in how these lifelines and lives on the peripheries are reconstructed @moefcc @MamataOfficial @MahuaMoitra @India4Climate @UNEP @WWFINDIA @SanctuaryAsia
This is a photo I took in 2017 when the concrete embankments post #CycloneAila had just been constructed. The #Embankment Reconstruction Project was allocated a whopping Rs 5,032 crore/ GBP 562 million funded by @WorldBank to build cement and block walls @sayantanbera
After #AmphanSuperCyclone, several of these concrete embankments, 5 meters high and 30-40 meters wide, concretising 35,000 km peripheries of #Sundarbans
have collapsed, broken, and in many places have taken massive chunks of the riverbed down with them @GhoshAmitav

Dear @Openthemag, I have a story for you. Your owner Sanjiv Goenka's CESC, which supplies power to Kolkata, hasn't managed to restore electricity to swathes of the city post #CycloneAmphan after more than 4 days. The much-maligned West Bengal state supply board, whom I criticised
myself the day after the cyclone, has restored power to the parts of the city it serves by Friday. I can give you all the help on the ground. Free of cost, considering the #Covid19 economy. The CM herself has gone to CESC to ask Mr Goenka to do what it takes. Let me know?
From individual complaints here, I understand CESC is not responding to calls. @Openthemag is pretty fiery on Mamata Banerjee. Will you also be critical of a private entity which charges the highest rate of power per residential unit, but is scared to take calls?

#CycloneAmphaan hit India’s east coast more than 60 hours back and Kolkata is still without electricity, water supply, broadband. Phone networks are patchy. The death toll till now is 80. Videos & pics follow. Thread.
This is the first video @abhirup_chdhry sent me. His experience is bone chilling to listen to. This video is from 20th May, 4.30pm in Kolkata. In front is the Kolkata Airport. Otherwise brightly lit, but hidden by the wind. This was just the start.
He told me the cyclone lasted till about 9.30pm and in those 5 hours it seemed as if nothing will survive. His house is on the fourth floor and water was coming in through doors and A/C vents.

Got through to 5 friends in the #Sundarbans, only Jio SIMs seem to be working, IF the @PMCares, provide immediate relief to blocks that have been severely hit by #CycloneAmphan @MamataOfficial @AITCofficial @MahuaMoitra @ntca_india @WCCBHQ @moefcc @derekobrienmp Updates below
Migrants not been able to send remittances for the past two months, several haven't returned, others will not be able to find work outside due to the lockdown to rebuild their lives. In the villages, roads have completely caved in; sweet water ponds have submerged.
Even the concrete so called “modern” embankments made up of cinder and cement have cracked, been swallowed by the hungry tide @GhoshAmitav & paddy fields and ponds are submerged with saline water. Fresh water fish have died. It will take 2-3 years before agriculture can resume.

#VERIFIED #OperationHashtag

👉Reality of the hashtag- #Hinduphobic_Bollywood & how twitter trends are managed

👉Syndicates use private facebook groups to make such hashtags trend

👉I managed to get a source inside one such group who took me deep inside it. READ ON😁

👉This hashtag was trended because of #PatalLok which they feel is Hinduphobic

👉They began by trolling #PataalLok producer @AnushkaSharma & then @imVkohli

👉Soon it became about the entire bollywood & usual suspects came on their radar, like- @sonamakapoor & @ReallySwara

👉This pvt group has both men & women

👉Some of its members were SAD that #CycloneAmphan was trending above #Hinduphobic_Bollywood. How humane!

👉For instance, take a look at this comment made while celebrating hashtag's success by a member of this private Facebook group👇
