Abstract

When I embarked on this study, I expected to observe a number of aspects of life after floods. Influenced by other profound stories, I thought I would be watching homes and lives destroyed and a village left ravaged not by the floodwaters but by the actions of distant responders; responders from within an area of practice that I too placed myself, albeit racked with tensions and ambivalences.
