Abstract: One month has passed since the Uttarakhand tragedy. Every time a disaster strikes at a religious place or an eventful religious congregation, the sacrilegious question that pops up is –‘where does it leave God?’This question is valid for any disaster where innocent people are killed. But the question becomes timelier in tragedies like the one we witnessed at Kedarnath in Uttarakhand. People go to religious places to pray for their well-being, for their families and near and dear ones. Strange enough, but, in the process, they lose the very lives they are praying for.
