Bara, April 4
After the fierce storm of Sunday night, Bir Bahadur Sah of Balirampur, Kalaiya sub-metropolis, Bara, is worried about his daughter’s marriage, after all the ornaments he had bought for the occasion were swept away.
According to Bir Bahadur, his daughter Sima was scheduled to tie the nuptial knot with Anil Sah of Chhapakaiya of Birgunj Metropolis after a few weeks. They got engaged recently. “I had taken some loan from a bank and had bought some ornaments for my daughter’s marriage. Now with the storm destroying everything I have no idea how I’m going to get my daughter married off,” said the dismayed father.
He scoured the rubble of his home with the hope of finding the ornaments, but to no avail.
Eight families in the village have been rendered homeless by the storm.
Meanwhile, three siblings of a family in Pheta Rural Municipality have no one to care for them as their parents were injured in the fierce storm and have been hospitalised. Roshan Khatun, 13, Samim Khatun, 11, and Samir, 9, have been left to fend for themselves. Their seriously injured parents are undergoing treatment at Birgunj-based National Medical College and Teaching Hospital.
Storm victims are sheltered in tents rigged up by Nepali Army and Armed Police Force at Purainiya of Pheta Rural Municipality.
