By Correspondent

BARPETA, Aug 11 - Prerana Puthibharal�s Sarukshetri unit in association with its parent organisation Prerana Puthibharal of Bihampur distributed reading and writing material among around 300 students belonging to flood- affected families of Barpeta district on Saturday afternoon at a function held on the ocassion of its weekly quiz competition.

The beneficiaries were selected through a reasonable survey conducted by the management of the library.

Speaking on the ocassion, Dwijendranath Sarma, chief organiser of Prerana Puthibharal lamented that though floods were a recurring calamity with a past record of vast devastation, however, no permanent steps have been taken to prevent it thus far.

He termed big dam as a major cause of flash floods, which was responsible for heavy loss of lives and properties. However, Sarma was hopeful that the authorities would initiate effective steps so that no one will require any kind of assistance due to the loss sustained in the deluge.

It may be mentioned here that Prerana Puthibharal organises quiz competition and symposium among students of the locality every Saturday. Experts in different fields have been delivering lectures in every session. Besides art work either by participating students or by an expert is exhibited. All these activities have been regarded as most informative and beneficial for the young students of this locality. They have developed a habit of coming to the library spontaneously and with enthusiasm.

Church�s Auxiliary for Social Action (CASA) also came forward to help the distressed people of Barpeta. The organisation in association with Anchalik Gramonnayan Parishad of Jania provided a considerable amount of relief material to the flood victims.

They distributed rice, dal, salt, turmeric powder, soyabean and other material of day-to-day need to 1,400 families under Rupsi and Mandia Development Block areas of the district on August 10. Similar material were also given to 1,600 families under Gomafulbari Development Block on August 11.
