Most in the Bhawraguri village of Kokrajhar, about 190km from here, had taken a chance and made their way out of the flooded hamlet on banana rafts. It's dangerous, exhausting and barely a guarantee for safety. Nirmali Ray, 60, decided to wait it out. And it helped. Within 24 hours since Wednesday, the State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) sprung into action and rescued her and more than 3,000 others like her.
