Sunderbans : River embankements under repair

More than 400 km of embankments in Sunderbans area were damaged by Cyclone Aila when it stuck the delta region on May 25, 2009. Pictures show that it is under repair, at North 24 Parganas. Repair work is tough and has to overcome the pressures of high tides, which is taking time, henceforth till date many villages are under water, even though it has been more then a month since Aila stuck.
