The number of people missing following June's floods in the Indian state of Uttarakhand has risen to more than 5,000.

One month after the flash floods struck, the government has announced that from Monday, anyone who remains untraced will be presumed dead.

The route to Kedarnath, one of the most important pilgrimage destinations for Hindus, was one of the most severely damaged areas.

Yogita Limaye reports from one of the towns on the route, on how its residents are coping with the aftermath.
