When Nature decides to put in some extra efforts, a Neelakurinji Phenomenon is pulled off. The Hills of Munnar are covered with a blanket of Neelkurinji flowers and that too, once in every 12 years. 2018, is one such year.
A journey, long but beautiful, which promises a destination, being witness to which is a story to tell for the rest of your life.
This Neelakurinji season has witnessed the most devastating floods in Kerala in nearly a century.
"Kerala is in the midst of an unprecedented flood havoc. The calamity has caused immeasurable misery and devastation. Many lives were lost. Hundreds of homes were totally destroyed and many more were damaged. For the first time in history, 27 dams in the State had to be opened. Never before had the State witnessed a calamity of this scale. In the fight against the flood, we have braved the odds. Now it is our duty to help the affected rebuild their lives. The path to recovery can be long & arduous, but you can make a difference by joining the rebuilding efforts. Contribute generously to the Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund." - CM Pinarayi Vijayan
We plan to hand over the amount received to the people of Kerala, at the Neelakurinji site. We will be traveling from Pune to Munnar by bike for which we have got the expenses covered. We will document the aftereffects of the floods. Neelakurinji will bloom again...Kerala will rise again...
