In one of the most heart-melting efforts, Manoj a journalist from Trivandrum, Kerala, cancelled his daughter’s engagement and decided to donate the funds for the betterment of the sinking State. After contemplating the situation of the State, the resident editor of Deshabhimani Daily, Manoj sensed that it is the need of the hour to help Kerala from the life-destroying flood. He shared about his step in a Facebook post

എൻറെ മകൾ ദേവിയും കായംകുളത്തെ അഡ്വക്കേറ്റ് സുധാകരന്റെ മകൻ അഡ്വ. ഗോകുലും തമ്മിലുള്ള വിവാഹനിശ്ചയവും മോതിരം കൈമാറലും…

Manoj and his daughter’s fiance’s family together decided to donate the funds to the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund, which would otherwise be spent for their engagement function, which was scheduled to take place on Sunday, August 19, in Koothukulam.

For the last few days, Kerala is experiencing its worst flood since 1924. The state witnessed 37% extra rain since June. The death toll has risen to 324 people. More than 2,00,000 people are displaced from their homes and living in around 1500 relief shelters. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also reached Kerala and is presently reviewing the situation with Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, reported Business Today

The Logical Indian Take

It is people like Manoj and his family who keep the world running even at the time of distress. Their family reinvokes hope in humanity. The support extended by the groom’s family is remarkable and shows their selflessness and consideration towards their fellow humans.

The Logical Indian applauds Manoj, his daughter and fiance’s generosity they have shown to help the Kerala flood victims at its worst time, taking it as their responsibility. We hope that the charity, love and support provided by all the responsible citizens will help Kerala revive from this distress.
