The Kosi River, the sorrow of Bihar, looks tranquil now. Buffalos and boys wallow playfully in the waters.


But last year it caused massive havoc, as millions were displaced in the worst flooding in 15 years.


Just recovering from that blow, the economic crisis is hitting the poorest in this poorest of states. Like many, Poddar lost his home last year. Now he's lost his job.


SOT Chandra Poddar / Migrant worker:
"I returned from the city because the company where I was working closed.
I do not have a place to live, where will I make my children sleep, I do not have a place to cook or eat, on top of this I have lost my job in the city."


No land, no livestock and now high food prices mean some families are feeding their children less and less.


Pawa Devi, villager:
"My children rarely eat anything other than salt and bread, either we can give them food to eat or clothes to wear, my children are malnourished and their stomach is coming out; doctors charge us 300 rupees for a visit. God knows how we will survive"


During the floods 8 percent of children were found to be severely malnourished. 
In response Unicef supported community centres with lifesaving Ready to Use Therapeutic foods.


SOT Arbi Khan / aid worker:
"In the case of Malnutrition, if a child is not treated on time, he child can surely die, we have saved the lives of many children here in Saharsa who are really malnourished"


But even at the best of times as many as 58 percent of children under five in Bihar are underweight.


It's feared now that with locals so reliant on jobs from outside the economic crisis will push more and more over the edge New ways now need to be found, for this fragile of states to flourish.
