future nation builders, we want you to understand the reasons, causes, consequences and
impacts of such natural disasters that are increasing alarmingly. What can we do as
individuals as well as communities towards disaster management—face it and mitigate it?

expressing your concern over the need of preventive measures like mock drills, using quality material for
construction etc that may help in reducing the effect of such disasters. Suggest a few measures and also
appeal the government and other welfare organisations to take the initiative and spread awareness to
prepare the citizens of our country.
 Prepare a questionnaire as to how common people feel about such calamities, and what support and
contribution for relief measures they can offer.
