Confusion, grief and despair in India's school poisoning village

(CNN) -- In Masrakh, an impoverished village in India's northeastern Bihar state -- scenes of trauma, confusion, intense grief.
Here, at the site of the school meal poisoning incident that has claimed 23 young lives and imperiled 25 others, thousands of people mill around, stunned, hungry for information. They listen to the procession of politicians that streams into the village to pay respects and make promises. But they cannot offer what these people want most: answers as to how the government-mandated free meals, meant to nourish the community's children, could instead have cost them their lives.
Four burnt out police vehicles fringe the side of the road, a sign of the simmering anger felt towards authorities over the tragedy. Investigators had previously flagged issues with food safety at schools in the state, with one report in April from India's Ministry of Human Resource Development noting that school food "was kept in open and dirty ground."
22 Children die after poisoned lunches
Dozens of Indian school children poisoned
A fresh grave has been dug in front of the ramshackle, solitary classroom where 120 of the village's children were enrolled -- an unambiguous sign of protest over the incident. There are many others buried nearby. Above all this, the wails of grieving families pierce the air.
Indian cook: Something wrong with oil
Sarita Devi is inconsolable as she mourns the loss of her five-year-old daughter, Dipu. The wife of a migrant worker, Devi says her daughter had not wanted to go to school that day, and laments the fact she had even given her a paisa -- a sub-unit of India's rupee -- to attend. "Why isn't anyone bringing Dipu back?" she cries.
Like many here, she has words of anger for the school's principal, who authorities say has absconded together with her husband, and whom they are seeking to interview. Devi's grief eventually overpowers her, and her body goes limp.
This is a poor village, in one of India's poorest states. Locals live in simple dwellings made of clay. The school is the heart of the community, meaning that scarcely a family here has not been affected. Even the school's cook, Manju Devi, lost children to the tragedy; her husband, Lal Babu Rai, told a reporter from CNN-IBN, CNN's sister network, that two had died after eating the tainted food, while another remains in hospital.
The settlement's solitary water pump is where locals say they were first alerted to the commotion following Tuesday's regular midday school meal. School children had congregated there to wash their plates after the regular daily meal of rice and potatoes. On this occasion, however, they began vomiting and collapsing.
The children were rushed to the local medical facility, but they could do nothing for them. They were transferred on to a larger hospital at Patna, Bihar's capital, some four hours' drive away.
In Patna, despite the distance, the incident is being keenly felt. The city has been rocked by violent protests over the deaths, and at Patna state government school on Friday, many children said they had been instructed by their parents not to eat any school meals, due to fears of further contamination.
They need not worry. Many NGOs who deliver the meals to the schools have stopped providing them to some schools, out of fears of a backlash. While answers on the tragedy remain scant, one thing remains clear: it will be some time before any sense of normalcy returns to Bihar.

Comment:

This killing death and all such like unfortunate incidence are very common things in election years, months and days and are not unusual in India. These rustic inhumane so-called Indian politicians wherein one would find also Indian national political  Party EX - Chief Advani sponsored the committal of genocide with regard to Babri Mosque. The case was started by Indian Public and Indian government got it investigated by an Indian who after thorough investigation charge sheeted the case indicting the Party political Chief Advani as the primary accused in the Genocide case. But unfortunately the case is rotting in the Indian Supreme Court for last two decades  without any action. The case is in the deep freeze in Indian supreme court seems to allow Advani to die without being convicted. Advani’s resignation from the party post is a political move for facilitating his party to participate in the national election without any hindrance or any any comment. Mr. Modi would you like to elucidate on the genocide sponsored by your ex- party chief Advani and delay on his trial of the case? .  So this being the background of the Indian national political Leaders these children's death and killing in election constituency is nothing but self created Political game to get the voters swing on own side to win the election.

INDIA IS A COUNTRY that has the capability to do anything by two-weapons lies and killing under cover of conspiracy .  This is like Israel except that Israel practices incest making every house as a den of prostitution .  Wherein,  Indians kill their population to achieve their targeted  aims and objective. In addition, when under pressure sell their mother, sisters and daughters. This country is corrupt to the bones and has no principle of moral character quality. All are show that they stage only to save their face in front of world Community of Nations Nations.

Coming back to the death of the school children , I could say to the world Community of nations that when the entire world morns on the death of the Indian innocent school children,  both the Indian Political parties internally are busy calculating who scored political points over the other to win the election with no  remorse of the death.   This corrupt nation is a female and children committal genocide sinner  World Community of Nations prays to God Almighty “May he forgive this filthy criminal corrupt sinner Nation for committal of unabated genocide.
