Kerala is constantly fighting the worst floods ever in 90 years that led to 20,000 crore loss, something which is hard to imagine. Celebrities, common people are doing their best to donate money for the flood relief work.
Swaha, Class XI student at Shenoy Memorial school in Payyanur was one among the contributors who hit the headlines for a different reason. Like many of us, she too felt sad after seeing the sufferings of the people. She made up her mind to do something for the less unfortunate ones.
She boldly took a move to donate the one-acre land, gifted by her father to her and her younger brother to the Chief Minister’s distress relief fund. In the letter written to the Chief Minister, Swaha wrote “I would like to make a small donation to the Chief Ministers distress relief fund. We are donating the one-acre land gifted by our father to us. to the Chief Minister’s distress relief fund.”
As the news soon became rife on the social media platform, many people showered praise on the girl who restored a leap of faith in humanity. Swaha is the proud daughter of Sankaran who is a farmer at Kandankali in Payyanur and Vidhubala. Her younger brother is Bhrama. Sankaran backed his daughter’s decision wholeheartedly.
The land at Mathil on the Cherupuzha route in Payyanur now goes for a price of Rs 50 lakh in the current market. “When so many people are suffering, shouldn’t we do something?”, ask Swaha and Bhrama.
