Floods hit northern India, killing 150

Rescue workers in northern India are scrambling to save tens of thousands of people left stranded by devastating floods that have killed as many as 150 people in the region.

Triggered by unusually heavy monsoon rains, the floods have swept away buildings, roads and vehicles in the mountainous state of Uttarakhand, which borders Nepal and China.

    I feel sorry for the Delhi Chief Minister. If I were Sheila, I'd seriously consider changing my last name. It's just a name.

    • huh?

      The name is of Hindi origin. In the language Hindi, there are more sounds of 'D', 'T' etc that english language doesnt even have. the D in her name is one such example. So is the T in her name.
