“If you don’t study well, you will end up as a fisherman “…!!
This is what usually my tuition master, laughingly used to say..
Today those fishermen sons of Kerala became Super heroes…
While the businessmen and the famed NRIs/NRKs were praying that some fishermen find them or their family back in Kerala in one of those boats…
My first cousin sister was rescued from her towering apartment complex surrounded by water by four unknown fishermen who travelled 25 km in search of victims..
They refused to take the bundle of cash given saying that you are our sister and we did not come for money…
My cousin sister sad she cried her heart out first time in several years…
