The devastation in Uttarakhand has been massive both in terms of human life and property. All the Char-Dhams bore the brunt, with Kedarnath being the epicentre. Thousands of pilgrims, local residents and rescuers lost their life due to nature’s fury which happened on 16th June 2013.
Except for the main temple of Kedarnath ji built by Adi Shankara over a thousands years ago, all structures got washed away in the flood which preceeded the cloud burst.
Nature has been cruel in a part of the country that believers would call the “divine realm”. The villages of Uttarakhand are in ruins. The tragedy in Uttarakhand has been unimaginable for all.
Our condolences to thousands of pilgrims, local residents and rescuers who died in the process. The entire nation is in the grip of shock and grief.
We pray to Almighty for early Re construction and Re habilitation of people of Uttarakhand.
