Indian news has been full of the floods in Kerala. It has been horrendous. I personally was not affected because where I live is not very near to a river. But all around my town, as well as up and down Kerala, the floods have caused devastation as I am sure many will know. It has been one of the worst floods in many years, mainly because the state of Kerala was affected from North to South and the water was high and powerful.
But here I do not want to go over many of the stories already out there. I just want to admire the youngsters from our state. The young people have gone out of their way to help in every which way they can, organising food, rescues, helping out at camps, now helping in cleaning up, and youngsters from all walks of life. Appreciation has been given to our fisher folk, who really have been heroes and to the Armed Forces. But here I want to express my appreciation for the very many youngsters who went all out to help whoever they could. Kudos to you young people. With such people around, the future of our state looks great!
