We have witnessed some unparalleled humanitarian rescue efforts of the Kerala flood victims. Religion, cast, politics etc beat a fast retreat.
Now’s time for cleanup and reconstruction.
Organisations, government, countries and UN have shown willingness.
And politics is slowly creeping in. Questions like Did central government offer enough, look at UAE offering more than central assistance, should we accept money from UN etc.
Let’s keep politics out and please don’t offend good hearts.
I am particularly intrigued at the statements like ‘India is not a poor country, we should not take UN money’ etc.
UN money is nothing but contributions from members and India is a major donor.
And like Britain drew compensation for the mad cow affected farmers from EU fund, India is to receive UN assistance to flood victims, graciously.
