Pukaar is an impassioned plea (a small effort from our side) for reaching out to the victims of the recent floods. One of the worst natural calamities in recent memory, the flood has been termed by International media as a "bigger disaster than the tsunami." 2 months on, we strongly feel that the response has been wanting in in the aspects of official patronage and long term rehabilitation. After the initial out pour where individuals went all out in providing food and relief goods to the affectees, there has been little effort to channelize these efforts into an organized response. Mismanagement and corruption has made it even more difficult to get aid across to the most deserving. The need for a planned long term rehabilitation program is being given little or no importance just like so many other important issues facing our country. We collectively as a nation need to "reclaim our faith from the clutches of indifference and disbelief".
Translation in English
With just the sky for a roof
My people lie shattered
Their dreams reduced to dust
Among the rubble of wrecked walls and broken roofs
Their cries for help
Await a listening ear.
Surely now is the time to reclaim our faith
From the clutches of indifference and disbelief
Rise once again sons of the soil
Your land calls out to you
Your people need you once again
Together we can heal the suffering
Together we can wipe away the tears
Together we can end the pain
Let this be our plea/ our prayer
