square red Remembering Black Tuesday of 26th July 2005 ↓


On early morning of Tuesday 25th July 2005, I went to Ghatkopar at my aunt's house. After routine personal discussion, I luckily escaped Ghatkopar at 11:30 A.M and reached my residence (in Kalyan) around 1:00 o'clock in the noon. It was later after two hours it started raining heavily and soon worst natural tragedy shocked entire Western Maharashtra. Kalyan City was also hammered too hard by heavy rains as never before in its history.

Kalyan Junction

My Mom (she works in Mantralaya) and Dad (his office is at Nariman Point) were not as lucky as me. They were stuck in their offices for nearly two days without proper food, electricity and sleep. On Wednesday 27th July 2005 they somehow arrived home but were completely exhausted, extremely depressed and frustrated.

Soon my mom hugged me hard and started crying. In my entire life, I never saw her in that excruciating pain. After having a proper sleep of six hours she felt relaxed and her worst nightmare was all over.

It was not only mine family who was affected but every single house in Kalyan City had the same story. In this worst natural disaster, many innocent people died, animals were traumatized and million dollars property was damaged. Most including local Government bodies seemed helpless in this tragic situation. Those who ran to save their lives when returned were shocked to see their damaged houses. I felt immensely bad to see people repairing and cleaning their houses in silence but with tears in their eyes.
