After the massive floods in Kashmir valley several houses were swept by the floodwater, leaving thousands homeless. The government response to the floods fury has been ineffective but several voluntary organisations and individuals have contributed to restore life to some extent, donating medicines, food, clothes, and tents. In Srinagar’s various areas, tents have been put up for people who lost their houses to the floods. Around 300 people have died in the state due to floods and the economy has seen a major downfall, that may not be recovered in just a few years. People living on roads, streets, relief centres are living a hard life, as life for them changed in just a few hours of floods. With no electricity or proper sanitation facilities, several families live in these tents, hoping the situation may be better next day. For The Kashmir Walla, Shahid Tantray and Muhabit ul Haq capture night life at these tents in Srinagar.
