Kolhapur-Sangli floods left lakes of lives shattered, homeless and in grief of tremendous loss of life and property. The non-stop rains from 1st to 10th August caused flooding of the rivers Krishna, Godavari and Panchaganga. This gave rise to overflowing dams, waterlogged cities and villages flooded with river water in adjoining areas prominently Kolhapur, Sangli and other parts of southern Maharashtra.
The flood water is receding but very slowly. Saving the lives of evacuated civilians was a herculean task. More than 15,000 families were evacuated by the Armed and Naval forces, still leaving more than 29 people dead.
Marathi film, theatre and television industry extended their support by setting up donation camps for supplies like food, medicine, clothes, blankets and utensils.
The stars requested fans, social media followers and industry fellows to gather contributions at donation centres across Mumbai, Thane and Pune. Several theatres and theatre association volunteered to provide space for stocking up donations and aid transport logistics.
Prajakta Mali's mother went down on ground zero when a fan asked for support. She helped the villagers with necessary supplies, moral support and strength to deal with the current situation.
The small town of Islampur was delighted with this small gesture! Prajakta shared the precious moment on Instagram.
