Cyclone AILA : The Teesta River chapter

Cyclone AILA was an extraordinary event which occurred between 24-27May09 (for us living in this region). One gets an idea of the huge amount of water that was dumped by the cyclone on these hills (in just over 72hrs) from the photos above.
My thanks to Naren Tamang of KTv, Kalimpong for the photos taken during AILA. To make the comparison stark, I took the other photos of approx the same areas on 13 Jun09.
