After Kerala, Nagaland is Desperately Seeking Your Help Amid Heavy Rains and Floods
While Kerala may be still reeling after its mass-scale floods which shook the entire state and left a high-death toll and thousands displaced, another state is also going through the same tragedy.
Nagaland has been experiencing landslides and floods owing to the incessant heavy rains - which has led to the death of 12 people.
The Chief Minister of Nagaland, Neiphiu Rio, tweeted seeking help - with a video showing the damage that is caused in Nagaland due to this rain.

And while Nagaland, along with other North-East states had contributed to Kerala floods relief, not too many are talking about the state.
