Flood

There are forty four rivers located in Kerala. Most of the rivers are getting dry due to large farmers making a little subway in rivers and taking huge amount of water for their agriculture lands and for their personal usage. There is no way for the river water to reach the sea.

Chera King :

Before five thousand years, the Kerala is ruled by chera kings, they made a strict rule that the river water in which land way it is moving, it should not be occupied by the people for their own use. As it is a order by a king, all the people followed that rule.

Sand Theft :

But by now, if there is no water in a certain river for two years. On the third year the sand theft takes place, on the forth year a contractor buy the land area and builds a large buildings in that area. As like there is no evidence for a river area completely filled with buildings. If again rain fall comes, where the water will go ?
It goes on its way only, not any other, but its way is fully filled with buildings, sands are stolen and that area is made empty, so water comes and fill that area where ever it is empty.
It was not the situation faced only by Kerala. Previously Chennai, even if Tamil Nadu faces a heavy rainfall like this, it also make a huge damage in Tamil Nadu also. Where ever the artificial empty place is made and filled with buildings, that will be affected when heavy rainfall occurs. The place now where we are sitting, it may be once a river flowing area, which we made buildings for our personal usage. We have disturbed the nature by making buildings in the place of a river, so it has no proper way to join the sea, it got stored in a place and gets into the living place of human beings after heavy rainfall and make disaster.
