The flood that ravaged Uttarakhand had its devastating impact in Joshiyara in Uttarkashi. With over a 100 houses being washed away, the villagers fear that in the days to come even the rest of the houses in their villagers will be wiped out and the authorities will continue to remain a mute spectator.Several houses in joshiyara are today hanging between the ground and the waters clearly resembling a disaster in waiting. Villagers say that they had foreseen this situation and had asked the District authorities to formulate a plan well in advance but the authorities it seems turned their deaf ears on the villagers plea.
