The flood fury in Assam may have receded, but the devastation and misery is still unfolding. There are 30 lakh people still affected by the last wave of flood in Assam this year. On visiting the Barpeta district in Lower Assam, NDTV found children out of school, sent to work to feed themselves, because many homes have lost their livelihood. Nearly 20 lakh children are estimated to have been affected by the floods in Assam this year.
