Spring season remains for three months however seems like remains for short duration because of its all around beautifulness. Birds start singing sweet songs in the welcome of spring season. Temperature remains normal, neither too cold nor too hot in this season. It makes us feel like the whole nature has covered itself with green sheet because of the natural greenery everywhere. All the trees and plants get new life and new form as they develop new leaves and flowers on their branches. Crops get fully ripen in the fields and look like real gold everywhere.
The Tenth Five Year Plan (2002-07) recognised disaster management as a development issue for the first time. It was prepared in the backdrop of the Orissa super cyclone (1999) and the massive Gujarat earthquake (2001). Later the Tsunami in the Indian Ocean which devastated coastal communities in Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Puducherry and Andaman in 2004 became the tipping point for initiating a series of steps by the government. India became one of the first countries to declare a national commitment to set up appropriate institutional mechanisms for more effective disaster management at the national, state and district levels. The Disaster Management Bill was subsequently adopted unanimously.
