Bihar Kosi Calamity in 2008:
1. 2.5 million people were affected
2. Life of over 19 lakh people from 725 villages spread across 263 panchayats in 24 blocks of Madhepura, Araria, Supaul and Saharsa districts was on stake.

Facts and figures
Measurements Water Discharge through Koshi Breach : 1,29,800 cusec (Ref. Page 2, http://disastermgmt.bih.nic.in/Bulletin2008/dailyfloodreport/flood_23082008.pdf )
1 Cusec : .02832 cubic meter per second
No. of Seconds in a day (24*60*60) : 86400
Water discharged per day : 317606400 cubic meter
1 cubic meter : 1000 liter
1 hectare : 10,000 square meters
Cost of Excavation of a 1 hectare * 2 m : Rs 1.5 lakh (Ref. Page 12, http://ahd.bih.nic.in/Documents/ICAR-Report-Fisheries-Dev-Bihar.pdf)
Width of Nepal border (356 km approx) 356000 m
Adbhut Samridhi Canal Proposal
Canal Parallel to Nepal border with dimension 350000 * 1000 * 2 cubic m which can store 70,00,00,000 cubic m of water and can store all the water flowing at 1,29,800 cusec for more than 2 days. Using the excavated soil the depth of the canal can be increased further which can store more water. Excavated soil can also be used to construct hydroelectric power generation units. Control on flood will increase agricultural production. Abundant electricity will lead to Industrial revival.
