I’m a debt-averse person in general. The kind who uses a credit card like a debit card; who tries not to take on mortgages or in the worst case close them as fast as possible.
But there is one debt that I will continue to carry forever, no matter how much ever I pay it back.
That is the debt of gratitude to this beautiful, tiny, wet, green strip of land called Kerala.
I am what I am because of the goodness that this land and it’s people; and its libraries, schools, colleges and newspapers have infused in me.
Unfortunately, today all this lies in tatters. We all have stood together during the greatest crisis in Kerala’s history and have almost pulled off the first stage - saving lives. This wouldn’t have been possible without the heroic acts of many Indians - thank you all ❤️
But now, it’s time to #ReBuildKerala
This starts with, naturally, helping the affected to rebuild their lives; then putting back together all those things that in total form the goodness of this tiny place.
I’m renewing my debt of gratitude to this place. This is a debt that I’m more than happy - actually proud - to take on. All of us who were born, raised or have lived under the shade of this benevolent tree called Kerala must join together to #RebuildKerala
#RebuildingKerala is going to be a long and arduous task. But, as our CM said yesterday in the press conference, “നമ്മൾ എല്ലാരും കൂടെ അങ്ങ് ഇറങ്യല്ലേ, പിന്നെന്താ പ്രയാസം?"
(“We are going to do it together, aren’t we? Then why worry?”)
Right now, the priority remains unchanged - to save lives, leave no one behind. But in the coming days, the mission to #ReBuildKerala will kick on. And we will know the specifics. The whats, the hows, the details. Let’s all join hands to bring this baby home. To #NammudeKeralam
