During the recent floods in Kerala as conditions were going from fun and games when it first began to being a national disaster. At the moment when things were taking a turn for the worse and situations were getting serious the first responders, fortunately, happened to be the Fishermen from the nearby coasts and backwaters. The military, fire and rescue, and coast guard were dispatched and saved a lot of lives and got things under control, if not for our fishermen we would have lost more. Though it not being their duty to do search and rescue or that being profession they are the good samaritans that stopped it from getting bitter than it already is. These men too have been at risk when there was a cyclone Ockhi at the end of last year although we were helpless. The good samaritans will not be forgotten.
Our hearts go out to the unfortunate people who lost their lives in the floods from Kerala and Kodagu. Thank you to all those who generously contributed to the chief minister’s fund. Even though we haven’t got a number there are so many whose homes and livelihoods have been destroyed. We really need all the help to rebuild the damages and help them get on with their lives.
In this time of the year happens to be the time of the festival of Onam, though we won’t celebrate we wish and pray for everyone this Onam and Eid.
