A family, accompanied by their belongings, traverses through the inundated thoroughfares of a low-lying area in New Delhi. The deluge is a consequence of the recent surge in water levels of the river Yamuna, caused by copious monsoon rainfall. The family's perseverance in the face of this challenging situation is a testament to their resilience and adaptability. As a result, severe flooding has occurred in India's capital and authorities have evacuated over 27,000 people in response to the situation.
