Lest we forget how fragile the transportation is in the flood areas of Uttarakhand, this hole has opened in the main highway just 100 yards from our ashram. Within the past 24 hours, with no rainfall, the last foot of pavement has fallen away. The road is so narrow that the rear wheels of every bus and heavy truck will come within 6 inches of this drop to the river. With no support, it is only a matter of time or the next rain before this place collapses more.


Yet traffic flows as normal with no alarm. Today is a beautiful day and tomorrow will bring what it will bring. Such is life in Chandrapuri.
