And, then one can see Sarath and Sarojini looking behind them as a mudslide crashes towards them out of nowhere, dragging down trees along the way. Though Sarath manages to escape, his mother, Sarojini, is pulled under the mud.
The search operations were disrupted twice due to unfavorable weather conditions. Since there was no rain in Malappuram on Sunday, the rescue team was able to resume the search and recover the bodies of Geethu and Dhruvan.
At least 63 people, including children, are feared to be trapped underground after a major landslide occurred in Kavalappara. Nine bodies have been found so far and rescue operations are still on. The total number of people reported to have died in rain-related incidents in the state is 63.
At I FOR HER, while we are mourning the death of Geeta, Dhruvan along with the other families, we wonder when would we learn how to treat Mother Earth with respect.
It is because of our careless and selfish attitude that nature is punishing mankind. And sadly innocent kids of next-generation like Dhruvan, with no fault of theirs, are paying the price for our misdeeds.
