The Uttarakhand tragedy continues to give nightmares to several families in Lucknow.

One such resident of Lucknow is Adhyeta Saran. Her mother Veena Saran, father Rajiv Srivastava and four other kin -- Himanshu Srivastava, 38, Kavita Srivastava, 25, Sushila Devi Agarwal, 42, and Sushil, 21, who were on a pilgimage to Kedarnath are missing.

Adhyeta said she last spoke to them on June 15, when they were headed for a trek from Gaurikund to Kedarnath. She has been in constant touch with the search parties in the hill state where thousands are thronging now, looking for their loved ones.

As of now, there seems to be no news of the six, who have gone missing. Her brother, Shashwat Saran, stationed in Dehradun, is also on the lookout for some clue that can lead him to his family.

The only clue he has got so far is an alert that six people have been spotted and they match the description given by him to the search parties. This is the silver lining emerging from the ‘clouds of despair’.
