Though the carnage of Hurricane Harvey is currently dominating mainstream media, Texas isn't the only part of the world being ravaged by flooding. International news coverage has largely ignored the torrential rainfall that has been devastating South Asia for almost the entire month of August, and it's time for us all to start talking about it.

Across India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, record amounts of heavy monsoon rains have caused disastrous flooding and landslides. Thousands of homes have become completely submerged, poor villages have absolutely no access to food and medicine, and nearly 1200 people have died - including children. Millions have been displaced, and are now wandering the region homeless and searching for help.

In case your local news station hasn't been reporting on it, here are 30+ photos from the scene that you won't soon forget. The GlobalGiving Foundation is working with a number of charities and aid organisations to provide relief to the many groups affected by these events, and you can learn more about it here.

Hate to say it, but they're better off walking, rather than make this poor guy struggle, to push and pull the rickshaw thru all that water, just because they don't want to get wet. Kind of cruel and selfish to make him do that, if you ask me. Now, if they were using it to transport goods that needed to stay dry... that would be another thing entirely, and understandable. I'm just sayin...
