Kerala Floods: Delhi Man Offers His Plot to Help People Cremate/Bury Their Loved Ones!

Kerala Floods: Delhi Man Offers His Plot to Help People Cremate/Bury Their Loved Ones!

The generous man also made it clear that people from any community were free to use the land in Pathanamthitta district for the purpose! #KeralaFloods #Respect

While the rains have diminished in parts of Kerala for the time being, this has also brought home the scale of death and destruction. In these challenging times, the residents of Kerala and many Malayalis living outside their home state are pulling all the stops to alleviate the hardships that those affected have suffered.

48-year-old Kuruvila K Samuel, who works as a consultant in the national capital, is one such person. Samuel’s paternal home which stands on 25 cents (1 cent=435.6 square feet) of land, which he owns, is located in the village of Anandappally near Adoor town in Pathanamthitta district.

Watching the devastation unfold in his home state of Kerala shook Samuel into action. Late last week, he took to social media and announced that he would lend his property in Kerala for families who wanted to cremate or bury their relatives who perished during the floods.

“I am an evangelist by passion. I believe in the power of the Lord Almighty in healing the wounds of human beings, however deep they are. But he needs the support of believers for that. I am long settled in Delhi with my wife and two children. Our native place was not that affected by the floods. I thought it would be a relief for the relatives of those who lost their lives in the floods if I extend my property for this purpose,” said Samuel, speaking to Onmanorama, a Kerala-based publication.

Samuel’s offer is open to people from any community, as he believes that due respect must be shown to the remains of those who died in the Kerala Floods. As he lives in Delhi, he has directed his relatives to accept people seeking to use the land. He has also received numerous phone calls for the same regarding details about the plot’s exact location.
