Kerala faced floods and landslides again, a year almost to the date after the huge calamity of 2018. Not as much of destruction as last year, perhaps; but that is little consolation for those affected – the families of over 100 people killed, more than 60 missing and about 100,000 displaced.

We are doing what we can, but what most of us do pales into insignificance when we think of initiatives like these.

Aji Kattakkada and Preetha Thonnakkal are two people who can smile as they face almost any adversity – they are Pallium India’s fellow-travelers and trainers, both paraplegic and wheelchair users. They make a living with their hands and their creativity, and they continue to smile as they donate for flood relief. In the picture they hand over their products to Kerala’s minister Kadakampally Surendran.

We bow to you, Aji and Preetha. We are proud of you and thank you for the privilege of walking with you for a while in your journey.
