After walking about 2 km from Marka Ghat to Banda, we reached Dinesh Nishad’s house. On foot because the road was so bad that not even a bicycle could go. There is mourning at Dinesh’s house. His wife Maya and 9-month-old son Mahendra also drowned in the boat accident. Dinesh’s younger brother Pintu was sitting on the ground at one side of the house. Pretty quiet. On his face you can clearly see the determination of not being able to save his sister-in-law and nephew.

The Dainik Bhaskar team reached the houses of the victims of this accident. I talked to him there. When we reached Dinesh’s house, we asked the two sons about the mother. The answer was, “Mother is dead.” In fact, they don’t even know the meaning of dying. How was the situation at home? what happened that day We all know that.

Maya was choking and the brother kept watching
On August 11, at 3 o’clock in the day, the boat from Marka Ghat moved to Jarauli Ghat with 35 people. Maya, Maya’s son, Maya’s brother-in-law Pintu also boarded. At the other end, Maya’s brother was standing with a bicycle. The ship must have moved about 300 meters when the strong wind began to shake. The boat began to fill with water and sank. Maya and her 9-month-old son also began to drown. The brother continued to watch all this.

Pintu tried to save both of them but could not save anyone.

Pintu says the sister-in-law and nephew were detained but both were released due to the waves.

Maya’s brother-in-law Pintu was on the same boat. Asked about the situation at the time of the incident, Dainik Bhaskar said, “Pintu said, when the boat sank, the sister-in-law and the boy were sitting next to us. We grabbed both of them. We dragged them around 50 feet. but then he left his hand. First sister-in-law. And then with the child too.” Pintu is disappointed after saying so much. The determination of not being able to save both of them is clearly visible on his face.

The son only knows that the mother is dead

Maya's two children are unaware of the death of their mother and brother.  They would sit together for a while and then start playing.

Maya’s eldest son Mahesh is 8 years old. He studies in first grade. 5 year old daughter Sangeeta is not in school yet. We asked Mahesh, where is mother? His one-line response was, “Mommy’s dead.” We asked, what did the mother say when she left the house? Mahesh says, “Just make yourself comfortable. Don’t fight.” After saying this, the son and daughter got busy playing outside the house.

Talked to sister in law tied rakhi after coming back.
As Maya was leaving home, her sister-in-law Budhia had returned home. While going to the maternal home, Maya had said, “Didi, stop today, we will come tomorrow morning, then we will tie the rakhi on you and the children.” Budhiya gets emotional explaining all this. His anger is also visible in the administration. She says: “When we went to look, the administration said to run away from here. No one has found When the dead bodies were found after coming out of the water, then they are amazed.

Government returned Rs 4 lakh due to wrong account number
The family of the deceased gets a financial assistance of Rs 4 lakh from the government. The body of 9-month-old Mahendra was found only on August 11. So he got a check for Rs 4 lakh the next day. But due to an incorrect account number, this money could not reach the family account. At the same time, the aid received on behalf of Maya may be released in the next 2-3 days.

The road in the village is so bad that the body could not even return home.
The Marka village area where Maya’s house is located is walkable during the rainy season. When the autopsy was performed on the corpse on August 13, the people in the house couldn’t decide whether to take the corpse home or not! In the end, instead of home, the family took the corpse straight to the ghat for the last rites.

There is no road to reach this Markha Dera village.  So the dead body was taken directly to the ghat instead of getting married.

Preeti, 20, belonged to Dera area of ​​Mirzapur Sarju in Marka village. Kauhan was going to tie the rakhi with mother at maternal uncle’s house. When the boat capsized, the mother and daughter drowned. Mother knew how to swim, she tried everything to save Preeti but could not save her. The last two days he is in a bad state to cry. Preeti’s elderly mother and father Bachanna are giving her courage.

Preeti got married on 21st June
Bachanna, who sat waiting for her daughter at Marka Ghat for two days, says that on June 21, the daughter got married in Matehna. Everything was great. Preeti’s husband Vikas used to sew clothes in Mumbai, when he got the news of the drowning, he also left. Preeti’s grandmother’s tears were not called to stop. Whenever people took Preeti’s name, their eyes turned towards her. She says, after the wedding, we didn’t even meet each other.
