Our Abu Dhabi Bureau Chief Anjana Sankar is on the ground in Kerala.

She's back in Kerala capturing the plight of thousands of Keralites after the heavy flooding that took the lives of 223 people thus far. 

Khaleej Times' Abu Dhabi Bureau Chief Anjana Sankar is once again in India, following the relief efforts in evacuating, relocating and treating the tens of thousands that were displaced in the recent floods.

Her first visit was to the relief camps in Wayanad district in north Kerala. 

People have lost their cattle and agricultural land, so they are left with no source of income but hope for a better future.

We will track the developments on KhaleejTimes.com and bring you 'live' updates from ground zero. Track Anjana's live blog here.
