Why Kerala Needs Your Support

Kerala has been hit by the worst floods in a 100 years. The Kerala Government estimates Rs 21,000 crore will be needed to rebuild the state. The funds are required to rebuild hundreds of flooded villages, thousands of damaged and destroyed homes and 10,000 kilometres of ravaged roads.
 
This Onam as Kerala struggles to rebuild after the most devastating floods in a century, NDTV has organised a special telethon to raise funds for Kerala. We have specific goals - to enable the rebuilding of villages in the worst-affected districts and provide immediate assistance in terms of rehabilitation and food kits to people in the worst affected areas . All donations will go directly to our partner NGO Plan India.
 
Our focus will be coverage that makes a difference, stories with a heart, standing by people and making their experience a shared one to effect change.   
 
NDTV chose to report on this massive crisis with unwavering focus and commitment; having done that, now we look, as NDTV always does, to go beyond the news and make a difference to people's lives.

Popular perception has been that the political class, bureaucracy, civil society and of course the people of Kerala worked well together to overcome the adversity.

    हम तुम्हारी हर झूठ पर भारी पड़ते हैं, भांडा फोड़ देते हैं और इस तरह आप धीरे-धीरे बदलते चले जाएंगे. नफरतों से सामान्य होना कितना सहज हो चुका है. मैं केरल नहीं गया. जाता तो गलत नहीं होता. उसके बाद भी किसी मदद करने वाले के चेहरे पर मेरा चेहरा लगाकर इस तरह से पेश किया जा रहा है ताकि कम दिमाग के लोग मान बैठे कि केरल जाना या बाढ़ पीड़ितों की मदद करना गलत है. कम दिमाग वालों में ऐसी मूर्खता होगी ही इसी भरोसे धारणा फैक्ट्री से ऐसी सामग्री बनाई जाती है. सोचिए जिसकी जगह मेरा चेहरा लगा है वह कितना अच्छा होगा. अपने कंधे पर एक बच्चे को बिठाकर ले जा रहा है. यह उस बंदे का अपमान है. हम समाज में ऐसे लोगों को तैयार कर रहे हैं जो इस तरह के झांसे में आ रहे हैं.
