BAKSA: The grim situation of flood in Assam witnessed a silver lining when a group of students under the name "Warriors of Flood", consisting of M.Com 2nd Semester students of Gauhati University's Department of Commerce, stepped up to provide relief materials to around 150 families suffering from the hazards of flood in Dhepar Gaon, Rangia. A charitable organisation, "Eternal Bliss" from West Bengal approached the group for collaboration to execute the noble cause.
The two groups joined hands to collect donation and distribute relief materials such as rice, potato, other food materials, soap mosquito coils as well as sanitary pads to ensure safety of health and hygiene of the women. This is the second time "Warriors of Flood" have come to uplift the people out of despair as they had carried out a similar initiative earlier to provide relief materials in certain flood affected villages in Morigaon where they came at rescue to around 250 families suffering from the hazards of flood. Such work of co-operation by two groups of young students belonging to different states is a stand out example of how the youth can stay united and use modern tools to step up in times of crisis, stated a press release.
