Curse of Goddess Dhari Devi and Uttarakhand Floods – Coincidence or Warning

There is a talk among local people that the flood in Uttarakhand in June 2013 is due to the anger of Goddess Dhari Devi. She is the guardian deity of the region. On June 16, 2013, the murti of Goddess Dhari Devi was evicted to construct a hydel power project. Government plans to shift the temple. Hours before the cloud burst and flash flood, the government had removed the visible part of the murti from the temple. Is it a mere coincidence or warning? Is it a warning by Mother Earth to stop looting her.  Goddess Dhari Devi is a guardian deity and is believed to be the manifestation of Goddess Kali. She is the protector of the Hills and the living beings that reside there. She is also the guardian of the Char Dham Temples. People are of the view that the region faced the floods and rain due to the ire of Goddess Dhari Devi. The temple was located around 19 km from Srinagar in Pauri Garhwal.
