MIRIK TINGLING LANDSLIDE RELIEF THROUGH BUSKING ( 2015 )
Darjeeling tea and its taste is due to intermittent rainfall but, withstanding monsoon in the sloppy region is dangerous due to the threats of landslides. Massive deforestation in the past decades has proved fatal with many untold stories of the suffering during calamities. The aftermath is avoidable if reforestation is done with good research in greater magnitude. However, due to poor governance and the urge of initiative due to paralysed and corrupt authority concerned, it leads to disastrous incidents affecting the lives of the common residents to unmeasurable parameters. The disregarded issue of the monsoon phobia in many parts of Darjeeling hills is an issue that needs a serious consideration to replenish the forest.
The meagre hope of help during need and crisis from the concerned authority lead the artists of the village to take the matter in their heart as a contribution to the affected. By putting their souls out they were able to collect the relief for giving hope of life and love. The force and act of wisdom potrayed by these artists with their contribution for collecting necessary material in order to take help to the affected tea garden for alleviating the suffering caused by horrifying landslide in the year 2015 is worth documenting. An human act of selflessness was seen and felt. According to the reports, more than 50 people lost their lives along with many domestic cattle including cows, oxen, goats, pets, and poultry. The wrath of nature has been evident all over the world and it's the same everywhere bringing havoc, chaos, tears, and pain as suffering.
