The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has issued a fresh warning for torrential rains in the forthcoming monsoon season which may give rise to floods. In a report (May 16), the authority declared 29 districts vulnerable. May we now ask our government as to what measures have been taken to prevent a repeat of the 2010 disaster?

Or is it that we are waiting for a calamity to hit and blame it on foreign powers, our sins or misleading beliefs or on any other conspiracy being contrived against us on world level?
