Nidhin, an AID volunteer from NYC has been volunteering as a physician in Guptakashi region of Uttarakhand. Their team would see close to 100 patients everyday spread over 20 villages.

In a brief conversation he said that the local people have come to fear rain. When it rains at night, people stay awake - even those who were not directly affected by the disaster.

AID Press Release: Opposing changes to RTI
Right to Information
Over 700 non-resident Indians and citizens have signed onto an online petition addressed to the President of India, expressing their support for the decision of the Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) on June 3, 2013, to bring 6 national political parties of India under the purview of the Right to Information (RTI) Act. Since the national political parties receive substantial funding from the government for their functioning, they were deemed by the CIC as public authorities, under Sections 2(a) and 2(h)(d) of the RTI Act.
