In June 2013, a multi-day cloudburst centered on the North Indian state Uttarakhand caused devastating floods and landslides becoming the country’s worst natural disaster since the 2004 tsunami. The reason the floods occurred was that the rainfall received was on a larger scale than the regular rain the state usually received.Just two day before the crisis, Two friends ended their expedition at Ukhimath because one of the friends fell sick. The final point of the journey was Kedarnath, and the expected date of arrival to Kedarnath was 14th June 2013. When they reach Delhi, home city, the news of the Kedarnath floods shook both of them.In that time of crisis, both ran back to Dehradun, the capital city of Uttarakhand, to help flood victims.They spent next ten days there, looking after for supplies and aid to flood victims.The rescue operation by government ran for months.The event raised many questions in their mind.What if they had not cancelled the expedition? What if they were the victims?What if the disaster had happened three days before ?…But the most critical question that lingered for so long was ‘WHY?’.Why did this happen, What led to such a natural disaster, and how had it been avoided.The answer lies in the way we humans live, the way we affect our environment and the way we deteriorate our nature. The pursuit of all these questions and there answers led to the creation of Social Nurture Foundation in 2015.
