Time and again, adversities have led us to something truly hopeful and inspiring. These images are from Punasita village in Balasore district, which has been grappling with flooding due to rise in the water level of Jalaka River.
Here a 3-day-old newborn is being rescued from a house marooned in flood water. The newborn baby and its mother were rescued by the rescue team and shifted to a safer place.
Around 50,000 people in as many as 12 panchayats under Basta block of Balasore have been hit hard due to the rise in water level following incessant rain.
