When almost entire Kerala faced a bad experience owing to heavy downpour and the flash flood, the whole nation stepped forward and took prime responsibility to help the neighbouring state by supplying whatever things they needed in tough times. The state is facing its worst flood in history after 1924. It is learnt that 10 out of 14 districts were affected.
The state incurred a loss of Rs.8,316 crores and generous people across India are doing their maximum best to donate money to the less unfortunate people. At one end, people are helping the sufferers by donating money and at the other end, Sikh charity is providing food to the hungry and homeless people, restoring faith in humanity.
Amid contributions from people in India, a young Indian billionaire, Paytm boss was ruthlessly criticized for his contribution considering his wealth. Here is how Twitter reacted:
Rs. 10K from a billionaire? Not bad to advertise 4 the Paytm app by posting it here & specifically mentioning 2 Paytm app?
