Sourav Ganguly, Former India Cricket Captain on #AllForBengal Telethon:

COVID-19 has affected the entire country. It is tough but be safe. The state of West Bengal will get back t its feet but it will take some time and support from people. 

 
Millions of trees have fallen down. The mango tree near my house was uprooted. This is a season of mangoes. We have pulled it back and it now gone back to the ground. The same should be applied to life as well. Let's bring back the life od affected people back to normal and help them recover.

 
Everyone should come forward to help with any amount as per the capability. But I would still say that there is a need of a permanent solution in terms of infrastructure because cyclone keeps coming every year in areas like Sundarbans. There is a need to make people empowered in order to face the consequences of cyclones and storms.
 
It will take quite a bit of time to recover. People are travelling from the cities to the Sundarbans with food and helping them to rebuild their house. Sundarbans are very dangerous with animals who can land up so near to the people as they might not know where to go. The people there are now fighting with fear, and fighting to know what will happen next.

I have seen the Amphan standing in my verandah and it was devastating. I have seen it from so close. It was unreal. But we were lucky because we live in cities with big blocks of buildings but those who are in the outskirts, the speed of wind was unreal. The villages are still suffering. It was completely cleared up. We talk about govts but such a big devastation can be supported and recovered with the help of people
