Disasters happen often and happen to people like us. It is thus imperative to be prepared for disaster management rather than suffer the perils : Rajni Sekhri Sibal, IAS
India has a unique geo-climatic condition which makes it prone to disasters. Around 3 billion dollars are lost when disasters strike. When a disaster strikes there is not only monetary loss or loss of infrastructures. Disasters brings with them the agony of losing dear ones.
In India it is very common that just after a disaster strikes people raise concern over the clipped media and then everyone forgets about the incident. But the effects of a cyclone, earthquake, fire or any natural calamity is not mitigated even after decades of its occurrence. The book talks about how children in school can be taught about precautions to take during a disastrous outbreak.
Ms Rajni Sekhri Sibal also mentioned how NDRF and state level disaster management forces collaboratively bring relief in such hard times. Mr. Mayank Jalan, President, ICC also pointed out that the drill session in schools is very effective in inculcating children regarding fire safety measures etc. Lastly Ms. Sibal concluded that reading this book one can know about the tips one should follow during a natural calamity or a man-made disaster and more awareness regarding disaster management should be spread she felt.
