A surgical glove floats in the flood waters along a street in Srinagar September 15, 2014. Indian emergency workers battled on Monday to prevent waterborne diseases from spreading, as fetid water swilled around the Kashmir valley more than a week after the region's worst flooding in more than a century.

What remains: Kashmir after floods

The floods engulfed much of Kashmir two weeks ago, leaving hundreds of thousands of people homeless in the region.

Most hospitals have been inundated, their diagnostic equipment, CT scanners, operation theaters and ventilators destroyed.

The region has been left littered with garbage, debris and countless bloated cows, chickens and dogs floating in the floodwaters.

The stench of rotting flesh hangs heavy in the air.

Both the Indian and Pakistani sides of the disputed Himalayan region have seen extensive flooding and landslides this month with Srinagar particularly hard hit. Hundreds of people have been killed and tens of thousands are homeless. (Agencies)
