Few stories from Leh
Sonal wish to see her elder sister again
Sonal is just 8 years old. Her father is in Military service. She lived with her mother and elder sister in one of the village near Leh. On the night of cloud burst. Three of them were sleeping in their house. All of a sudden they realised that flood water is entering their house. Immediately, mother grabbed her two daughters and tried to keep them closer to her. But the force of the flood water was so strong that all three started drowning. The force was so fast that these three were hit hard in stones and trees on the way of the water current. Mother got many fractures. She could not hold them any longer. The flood water took the elder sister away from the mother. After that mother does not know what happened to the elder daughter. The mother does not know whether she is lost or dead. There is no report about her. Villagers assume that she is dead.
