For nearly 16 years, Tripti has called Jibantala her home, a place where nature’s fury has become an all-too-familiar adversary. Her story is one of unwavering determination and the power of the human spirit.
The flood incident that unfolded in Jibantala was a devastating ordeal for its residents. Tripti found herself standing knee-deep in water for an extended period, an experience that left her with a persistent infection, marking the beginning of her arduous journey towards recovery. The road to healing was long and challenging, but Tripti remained resilient.
The challenges did not stop at the floodwaters. The damage inflicted on solar panels left the area devoid of light for multiple days, plunging the community into darkness. The entire stock of vegetables, a crucial source of sustenance, had deteriorated, leaving many without the nutrition they so desperately needed.
But amidst the flood, another unexpected trial emerged. An influx of fish, snakes, and water inundated the vicinity, necessitating Tripti and other patients to pump out the water to prevent further damage. The perilous presence of snakes added another layer of danger to an already dire situation, prompting the evacuation of all patients from the area.
Tripti’s story is one of resilience, strength, and the indomitable human spirit. Despite facing the wrath of natural disasters, she, like many others in Jibantala, continues to rebuild her life, determined to thrive in the face of adversity. Tripti’s journey is a testament to the human capacity for resilience and the ability to find hope even in the darkest of times
