Bombay, 2005.

This week, we will complete 14 years since devastating Maharashtra Floods of 2005. The city received a rainfall of 944 mm, a 100-year high, in a span of 24 hours. The rain continued and at least 1,000 people lost their lives and 14,000 homes were destroyed. The term 26 July, now is, in context always used for the day when the city of Mumbai came to a standstill. This day will forever be marked in lives of all Mumbaikers. The day when they were worried about their parents coming back home, a day where they could see animal life being destroyed right in front of their eyes, a day where there was they wanted to do to help but couldn't do anything, a day when they were all scared in Mumbai.
