With waters receding, the flood crisis in Assam is showing signs of improvement. But 38-year-old Dalimi Kalita wades through her waterlogged courtyard in Chandrapur, about 30 km away from Guwahati, with a worried look. Dalimi is concerned about the stinking, stagnant flood water - a possible breeding ground for diseases like the dreaded Japanese Encephalitis. Her 6-year-old daughter is already running a fever. "The government needs to give some medicines to pre-empt an outbreak. My child already has cold, fever and I am really worried," Dalimi told NDTV.
