New Delhi: Natural disasters also termed as ‘acts of God' have caused immense damage to life and property. It takes years to rehabilitate people.

Droughts, floods, famines, earthquakes—India has been a victim to every form of destruction by nature.

To some extent, the exploitation of natural resources by man is also a cause for such calamities.

Here, we present the top 10 natural disasters that shook the nation: 

1.Deccan famine of 1632-33

One of the most severe famines to be affected in 1632-33.
