Cyclone Fani hit the eastern coast of India on May 3, leaving behind a trail of destruction.

The state of Odisha a land of ancient culture and 45 million people, which was the epicenter, has palpably been the most affected. At the time of writing, the death toll has been pegged at 41. It has been estimated that there has been US$1.7 billion worth of damage to infrastructure.

It was extremely Severe Category 4 Cyclonic Storm Fani after 1999. It made the landfall in the Holy city Puri and almost destroyed it and then spread into other parts of Odisha and then to AP, WB And Jharkhand.

Thanks to the precautions taken by the Odisha GOVT, 1.2 million people evacuated from vulnerable areas. After the Cyclone, several districts and Cities are almost destroyed which includes major cities like Capital city Bhubaneswar, Puri and Cuttack. Bhubaneswar International airport, Railway station, VIP roads, houses, mobile towers, millions of tree plantations were demolished.

We people of Odisha do not expect anything from anyone because we are always Ignored and learned how to handle our own pain. But the way National Media like Hindustan Times and India Today has reported is totally not acceptable and shameful. In the news paper Hindustan Times just reported "Impact of Fani was felt across India, Particularly in parts of WB, AP and Jharkhand". Are you serious Hindustan Times? You just ignored Odisha like this when Odisha is the state which experienced this destruction. 

India Today reported "Cyclone Fani makes a landfall in West Bengol"? Again are you serious India Today? It was Puri, Odisha. Really not acceptable.

These 2 are just 2 examples there are many instances like this when Odisha is ignored by National Media in such a sorrowful time. A year ago there was a Flood in Kerala, just before the elections and the entire media house was ranting about it. All celebrates showing their sympathy and solidarity for Kerala. Services like Paytm, Freecharge, Google Pay created a option in their app for donation. All these done because it was just a political campaign but nothing for Odisha because elections are over and Humanity just died.

This is definitely not acceptable, lets hold our hand together and pray for Odisha and raise our voice together for our Rights.

I'm also sharing a link below to donate funds into Odisha CM's relief fund to help the needy.
