I, Prachi, have come here with camera person Jyoti to show you the truth of this Kurukshetra colony, says a 10-year-old girl before she starts painting a grim picture of her inundated neighbourhood.

With her feet underwater, speaking into her clenched fist -- her microphone -- and muddied water all around, Prachi explains how a field in which vegetable seeds were sown showed no such signs after floodwaters made their way to the colony.

And somewhere in between, Prachi also reports how students were still being asked by parents to attend their tuition classes.

She, then, carefully walks through the floodwaters to report on other parts of the locality.
