The decision was taken at the meeting of the Central Natural Disaster Relief Committee.

Majority teams were deployed in Kathmandu valley, sindhupalchok, and Gorkha districts which were the worst-hit places… However, India has offered further help if Nepal asks for it.

Meanwhile, the death toll in Nepal tragedy has crossed 7300. Deputy Prime Minister of Nepal Prakash Man Singh said the country requires nearly 10 lakh temporary shelters for the affected people.

According to the Nepalese government, over 1,60,000 homes have been destroyed while more than 1,43,000 damaged due to the natural calamity.

Meanwhile, doctors are working without break at various hospitals to treat injured persons.

Miracle stories of Nepal quake survivors are emerging now. Several people were buried under Nepal’s Dharahara Tower which collapsed due to high-intensity tremors.

But rescuers have pulled a woman and her daughter from the ruins of the famous tourist destination… Both are now being treated at a nearby hospital.

Meanwhile, normalcy is returning to Nepal as markets and shops have now opened and people are going to their offices.

Though the life is returning to normal in Nepal nine days after the powerful earthquake, the stories of sorrow are still emerging the deep scars and wounds in the minds and hearts of millions of Nepalese will take long time to heal and so would the relief operations.
