When the water receded, he came back but there was nothing left. He has to borrow to rebuild his house. With the support of some of his fellow, he managed to rebuild one room where as the boundary wall is still in construction process. Someone has given him a tent that somehow provides a bit relief to this family.

In 1993, he got injured his feet. He used traditional methods to cure and later on got examined by a doctor. With the passage of time, the swelling expanded from feet to belly.
