life at Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Nabadwip, quickly returns to normal.

Sripad B.N. Acharyya Maharaj stands on the new broad stairway under construction so our cows can access the goshala roof as an additional refuge in time of flood.

Prabhu Ranjit, Srila Govinda Maharaj's personal servitor, in front of a section of rebuilt compound wall. The holes are to let water escape in case of future flooding.

Sripad Bhakti Prasun Aranya Maharaj feels the morning autumn chill today here at the Math.

Prasad distribution is back to normal on marble cleaned by Srimati Ganga Mayi's inundation.

Inside the front gate, Prabhu Visvanath points out the level of the flood. He is drying out and repairing the "Vaikuntha Bhandar" for service to the Devotees.

Rice paddy brought from our cultivation in Bonopukur, an area unaffected by flooding, is threshed near the old cow-shed.
