Description: East India Comedy Outrage: Chennai Floods and how the nation united to help them - The Chennai floods showed how spirit of unity works everytime.
East India Comedy has shared their latest outrage against the Chennai floods which ravaged the South Indian city. The floods caused by the worst rain in over 100 years led to massive flooding in the city. This catastrophe left over 300 people dead and over 3 lakh people homeless. Was it only the rain that caused the floods? No, poor city planning was a major reason for this avoidable disaster.
Relief work was affected because of a variety of reasons. The national media took a long time to realize the gravity of the situation and they were interested in other issues which weren’t as serious as the Chennai Floods. To top it off, there was a fiasco involving the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. An image of him looking out of an airplane’s window was photoshopped to resemble him taking stock of the situation at Chennai. [Also Watch: Indian TV censorship explained by East India Comedy ]
EIC commend the work of the one unit that can be trusted to do effective work in every disaster – the Indian Armed Forces. The Army helped the needy and they were extremely effective in relief work. But, the most ironical aspect of the flood was that a cause for the disaster was the National Institute of Ocean Technology which was built on marshy land. They are responsible for studying the effects of different buildings on the environment. Check out the EIC Outrage by clicking the video below.
