In a significant breakthrough for rescue efforts in flood-hit Uttarakhand, an alternative road link to the Kedarnath shrine's base camp was opened on Friday by the Army, enabling the evacuation of thousands of pilgrims stranded in the worst-affected area for days without enough food and water.

But the good news was tempered with bad weather being forecast in the flood-affected region from Sunday night, causing the government to ask rescue teams to go full-throttle with their efforts in the 48 hours before that.  Soldiers rescuing people. (AP)
They also said that the evacuation process was almost over in the other badly-affected places such as Gangotri, Govindghat, Ghagharia, Gaurikund-Karnprayag and Joshimath.

The heavy rains caused by the annual monsoon have left more than 500 people dead and stranded tens of thousands, mostly pilgrims, in India''s northern mountainous region, officials said Friday.

RSS swings into action in flood-ravaged Uttarakhand
In flood-ravaged Uttarakhand, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh cadre has hit the ground running and brought relief to tens of thousands of flood-affected people. Working with the Indian Army, the RSS has contributed greatly to the rescue and relief initiatives.
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, on a visit to Uttarakhand, assured all possible help to the flood-ravaged State. During his recent visit to the RSS office in Dehradun, Modi also offered to reconstruct buildings and temples devastated due to the fury of flood.

A dervish was once sitting alone, meditating in a patch of desert. A ruler passed by. The dervish, being free from the cares of this world, neither lifted his head nor paid any attention. The ruler, with the violent pride of power, was furious and said: “These dervishes in their patched cloaks are no better than animals!”

His minister scolded the dervish and said: “The great ruler of all the world passed by and you did not stand and bow: why were you so rude?”

The dervish replied: “Tell your king to expect those people to bow who hope for some reward from him. Tell him that rulers are there to protect their people. The people were not created just to obey rulers. The ruler is the watchman of the poor, though he has greater wealth and glory. The sheep are not made for the shepherd, rather the shepherd is there to serve the sheep. Look around you: today you see one man carefree and successful, the other struggling sore-hearted to survive. Wait a day or two, and see how the earth devours the brain once troubled with so many foolish thoughts! When the irresistible decrees of Fate are issued, neither king nor slave remain. Open up the tomb and search these dusty bones: can you tell which was the rich man or which was the pauper?”

The ruler was struck by the words of the dervish. He said: “Ask me a favour!”

The dervish replied: “I would ask you to never disturb me again.”

The king begged: “Give me a word of advice!”

The dervish replied: “Now that wealth is in your hands, realize before it is too late, that this wealth and this power pass from hand to hand.”
