Rage of the River

Originally titled Tum Chup Kyon Rahe Kedar in Hindi, the work was translated by Vandana R Singh into English.  Rage of the River – The Untold Story of the Kedarnath Disaster is a riveting commentary on the socio-environmental landscape of Uttarakhand and is filled with vivid imagery of a natural calamity.

 On June 2013, a normally calm Mandakini came crashing down from the hills of Uttarakhand and destroyed everything in its path: houses, bridges, dams and the town of Kedarnath. The author Hridayesh Joshi was the first reporter to reach Kedarnath after the disaster and brought to light stories from the most-remote parts of the state.
