We then went to Varuna / Samneghat affected and moved ahead with 300 around packets and it took 2 hours for distribution in the internal areas where all communications were barred due to flood for more than a week now. After distributing close to 550+ Packets we distributed another 200 packets which were in line with the steamer and people collected from their Roofs where they were standing even we all have to literally throw the Packets in such a manner so that everyone can collect from their places –small children were throwing themselves in water for food and taking not only for themselves but for their whole family. At close to 1 pm almost 400 packets were being distributed and then another leap taken with high morale we came back from where.
