Patna, Sep 8 (UNI) After facing the terrible ordeal due to the catastrophic flood, life is now limping back to normal in the relief camps of the flood-hit districts of North Bihar.

The day starts early morning in the road side fields, orchards and other barren lands which were expanding fast into villages of tents for the rescued people.

People were rendering services to minimise the sufferings of the flood victims. The local people were preparing meal for the rescued people who lost even hopes in the deluge.

With the generous help of the NGOs and assistance from government, the victims were now getting food, shelter, cloth and other required help in the relief camps.

Those fell ill due to the water borne diseases were also getting medical aid in the health camps where doctors, nurses, and other paramedical staff were working round the clock.

Apart from catering the basic needs of day to day life like teaching have also been taken up by the people. The teachers who either had been displaced or those living near the relief camps have taken up this task.

''Teaching begins once the langer is over'' said Arvind Kumar, a mathametics teacher living at a relief camp in Purnia.

Meanwhile, the state government had also directed to start the functionings of the Aanganwadi in the relief camps itself as the people displaced will have to live for long in the makeshift camps.

With the passage of time, the children orphaned in the flood have also started interacting with each other.

As many as 2,76,000 people were living in the relief camps in Purnia district, getting food like rice, pulse, milk and others.

Bhago Devi,living in the camp along with her seven family members in Purnia is quite happy as her grand children were getting milk besides food which she could hardly ever afford earlier.

Providing logistic support to such a large number of people was a big challenge, said Sudhir Kumar, a Block Development Officer.
