Kerala Floods: This photo is shared with the caption, "How can I leave it dirty?" There is an heart-warming story behind the only room, which looks like it was built just yesterday.
A photo of Kerala floods shared by Gopinath Parayil, has gone viral as this must be the first photo of a squeaky clean room that is surfacing after the disastrous visuals of flooded land and buildings shared everywhere.
This photo is shared with the caption, "How can I leave it dirty?" There is an heart-warming story behind the only room, which looks like it was built just yesterday.
The photo is of Kongorpilly Government Higher Secondary School, in Koonanmaavu district, Kerala. This room on the fourth floor was a shelter for 1,200 people for four days, before they were moved to a relief centre.
One of the those sheltered, Rita, who is a daily wage labourer is said to have urged others to clean the floor before they left the place. She had reportedly asked others, "This place was home for me for the last four days. How can I leave it dirty ? We keep our home clean, right?”
Rita is said to have cooked for everyone staying in the school. A photo of her saving a goat in the floods was also shared by Gopinath Parayil on his Facebook page.
Rita is said to have migrated from Idukki in Kerala.
