Flood hangover

Greater Kashmir

This refers to the recent devastating flood and the agonies it has come with. The victims suffer from depression, high distress levels, anxeity attacks, nightmares and flashbacks. This is called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in medical terms. PTSD is on rise in the valley particularly among the children. They lost their books and their schools too suffered. There is now no noise of children on the streets and playgrounds, no dancing and playing. They are  afraid of even slight drizzle, fearing that flood might hit again. They are now scared of clouds.They seem to have lost their childhood.
