There is a cold wave sweeping across the north. I watch the temperature dropping every night in Kashmir. Srinagar moved from minus 4.6 degrees to � 5 degrees. How cold would it be in interior remote areas of Jammu. They showed a snapshot of Drass in NDTV. People said the snow comes upto the first floor of the houses and that smaller villages have no PDS or doctors.
It is bad enough for them every winter. This time with millions homeless, just how many are going to survive this chill. The earthquake has taken away the security out of people's hearts and lives. Nature is set to again test their capacity to endure. I fear not many can. How will they endure the cold wrapped in mere winter jackets , huddled inside tents.
My heart fears for the red cheeked girl child, I caught a glimpse of on NDTV. Her face remains in my heart. Will she be able to beat the cold? Will she live, have a life?
