We bring you greetings on the festive occasion of Onam, the harvest festival of Kerala. This is the festival that every Keralite takes part in irrespective of religion, caste or creed, a time of friendship, love and happiness.
Pallium India’s Trivandrum Institute of Palliative Sciences (TIPS) celebrated it with a feast, the whole team taking part of it including patients, family members, volunteers and professionals. Lija (one of our patients) sang for everyone.
The audience was delighted not only because of the lovely melodies that flowed out of her blessed voicebox, but also because she had come walking without support, after being wheelchair-bound for 6 years. She conveyed to us the essence of palliative care. Thank you Lija.
