  • I live in Kolkata and I witnessed the horror on 20th May, 2020 for 7 hrs starting from 2.30pm onwards... The sound that was outside reminded me of a evil spell that I read only in horror books.. God blessed us alive and I am grateful.. Never ever I want to witness this again.2020 is the worst year in the history of calendars. Our grand children will read it in their history books but never would be able to witness it again.

  • it is poor infrastructure that is to be blamed. calcutta and bengal have not developed well at all since independence. the shifting of capital and system of government meant it is lagging in everything in india. On that road you can see a old house made of hey surviving the storm! That tells you what is going on. That area will always get storms and flooding( you have world number 1 sunderban as well). so cant blame nature for everything. They need serious investment in all departments. Well which part of india dont.

  • #Amphan super #cyclone may have left #Kolkata and #Bengal scarred. But, it has endured and will rise again. However, one thing all should ensure. When the Central #government. in #NewDelhi announce & realese the #Amphan #Relief #Fund. IT SHOULD DIRECTLY GO TO AMPHAN AFFECTED #PEOPLE & #FAMILIES #BANK #ACCOUNT. None of the relief #money should be transferred to #WestBengal #TMC govt. and the state Disaster Management dept. The relief fund for familes who lost home and everything should not be routed through local #politicians and councillors. These local politicians in #Bengal & #Kolkara are #thieves and #robbers. They run the state funds dry. The #money sent by #Bjp led Central.Govt. in #NewDelhi, will be #looted by these #corrupt Local Political leaders and their party cadres #cadres. Depriving the real Amphan cyclone affected people from help they need. Just like the #communist #CPIM govt. and local politicians looted the money sent by New Delhi after 2009 #Aila cyclone. After the Aila cyclone on May 2009, then #Congress UPA govt. sent Rs 2,500 crore to Disaster Management department of West Bengal ruled by then CPIM Left Front govt.. However, that money never reached the Aila affteted people on the ground. The money disappeared at local politicians level. These politicians changed sides left CPIM and joined TMC, Congress and other Political parties. Hence, citizens of #India, have the misfortune to have the worse kind of greedy politicians at local level.
