Rains are nice, but floods bring pain say children
Children see their own world from their eyes, which could be different then we as adults. They do like rains, pitter patter rain drops, but feel pained when excess rains bring floods and pain to them and their peers.

 

RAIN IN Madhya Pradesh, though delayed initially, later on recovered. As of date Madhya Pradesh had 9 per cent excess of rainfall. Some pockets of the state are extremely wet, have been flooded and few are still dry, wanting rains. 

The media normally covers stories of people who get affected by both situation but somewhere children get missed out. I spoke to few what to do children think about rains as their viewpoints normally don’t get reported.

This is what they had to say. Yashpal Tiwari a class ninth student from Hoshangabad district which has two main rivers namely Narmada and Tawa, both of them have seen increase in water levels of the rivers. Parts of the district have witnessed floods. He says ‘it is good to see rains but I feel bad when water due to excess rains enter houses’ like it has happened in villages in our district. Why can’t we do stop that and let’s only have enjoyable rains?

His friend Rohan from the same district shares that Why can’t we just dig a ‘big hole’ and put excess water in it?. When explained to him about that this cannot happen water is too much for a ‘hole to manage’ and is flowing out of river due to heavy rains, he gets serious. ‘I feel pained to see houses of his friends under water. Can’t Government do something about it he questions?’

Deepak Rajpur, Child reporter from Guna district who reports in children newsletter titled as Awaaz, says that rains have helped increase the water level of six handpumps in the our village, feels happy about it but his peer child reporter Keshav Kuswah from Village Saktpur feels that as an ‘after-effect’ of rains prices of vegetable have gone up which will decrease consumption of vegetable in food as people will not be able to afford to buy the same for their homes.  

Narendar Bairagi who also is a child reporter from Guna says that though clouds thunder but his village in Guna has not got much rainfall. He wants more. He wants ponds full of water so that he can float homemade paper boats on the water!’

Bhopal kid Akriti is happy that rains have finally come to her state, but it is number of potholes on the road which pain her as these give us and my friends a lot of bumps when we go in our school bus to school. Children do see their own world from their eyes, which could be different then we as adults. They do like rains, pitter patter rain drops, but feel pained when excess rains bring floods and bring pains to them and their peers.
