    Hundreds Feared Killed as Cyclone Devastates Odisha Coast

    Several hundred people were feared killed as the super cyclone with a velocity of more than 260 kph battered 10 coastal districts of Odisha for more than eight hours today. The state government called in the army and the air force to help carry out relief and rescue operation. "You cannot imagine the devastation. More than 200,000 houses have been destroyed and vast tracts in the coastal areas submerged," Chief Minister Giridhar Gamang told the United News of India on telephone. He also spoke to Defence Minister George Fernandes to send in troops, air force helicopters and transport aircraft. All the 10 affected districts remained cut off from the rest of the country with power supply and telecommunication links cut off. According to initial reports, heavy damage has been reported in the affected areas. Road links in certain areas have been cut off. The cyclone hit Paradip port this morning at a speed of 260kph. The diameter of the cyclone was very big and all nine coastal districts of Odisha were affected badly. The storm of rare intensity left petrified residents fearing for their lives in the capital and the thickly populated areas along the coast. Massive loss of life and property was feared, but a clear picture will emerge only after the storm abates.
    The hardiest of trees fell to the ferocity of the gales, which swept away much of what came in their way. Torrential rains continued to lash the capital city, which is about 65 km from the Puri coast. The flat terrain along the coast allowed the strong tidal waves to reach far inland without obstruction. The cyclone stormed Bhubaneswar at around 0830 1ST. The gale speed had touched a howling 260 kph by 1500 IST. Telephone and electricity poles snapped like matchsticks, leaving the telecommunication network in shambles. Power breakdowns plagued the affected areas with little prospects of early restoration of supply. The air traffic control tower in Bhubaneswar reportedly suffered damage, leaving little scope for early resumption of air traffic. Fallen trees blocked the roads and the highway between Cuttack and Bhubaneswar. The army moved in to provide immediate relief. Two signal attachments were flown in with INMARSAT terminals to re-establish telecommunication links. Electrical and mechanical engineers of the army are already trying to restore power supply.
    Huts and other fragile structures collapsed, forcing the inmates to seek shelter in temples and schools. Tidal waves rose two-storeys high, breaking embankments at Talachua in Paradip and Erasama. Large parts were inundated in the coastal areas. But details were not immediately available. Ships had been taken off the harbour. Several buildings, including the state secretariat complex, were damaged. Eyewitnesses said no tall tree was standing in the entire city anymore. Old-timers said they had never seen such devastation.
    The building housing the UNI offices in the heart of the city was among the structures damaged. It forced the agency to shut down its cornputerised news operations. The only means of communication available was the telephone line, which also threatened to go off anytime.
    Full details of the havoc wrought by the cyclone are yet to come in, but it was feared to have left a ghastly trail, especially in the coastal areas. Meanwhile, the railways cancelled 14 passenger and mail trains scheduled to run in the cyclone-affected areas.
    Question:
    In your view, what preventive actions could Odisha have taken to reduce the damage caused when the Super Cyclone struck?

How does the phrase "Hungry stomachs, overflowing godowns! Will we not accept it!!" used in the poster relate to the photo essay on the Right to Food on page 61?
    Poster:

    Photo essay

    Photo 1. In 2001, the drought in Rajasthan and Orissa meant that millions faced an acute shortage of food.
    Photo 2. Meanwhile, the government godowns were full of grain. Often this was being eaten away by rats.
    Photo 3. In this situation of 'hunger amidst plenty' an organisation called the People's Union of Civil Liberties or PUCL filed a PIL in the Supreme Court. It stated that the Fundamental Right to Life guaranteed in Article 21 of the Constitution included the Right to Food. The state's excuse that it did not have adequate funds was shown to be wrong because the godowns were overflowing with grains. The Supreme Court ruled that the State had a duty to provide food to all. 
    Photo 4. It, therefore, directed the government to provide more employment, to provide food at cheaper prices through the government ration shops and to provide mid-day meals to children. It also appointed two Food Commissioners to report on the implementation of government schemes.
