Almost every year, Assam faces a flood-like situation due to heavy rainfall. Even this year, with the mighty Brahmaputra river flowing through the State, forests and villages situated on the banks of the river faced floods, resulting in loss of life and property. Now, as the State limps back to normalcy, the Centre and various State governments and private organisations have offered help.
Coming forward to take this noble initiative by arranging a camp for the flood victims is Guwahati-based Padmapani Bora, an Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer. Padmapani has organised a mass-scale health camp in a remote village of Kamrup called Hajo. Apart from arranging the camp, he has also donated his salary for the cause.
