The state of Kerala needs as much help as possible from the people to survive the floods. Here is what all of us can do.
The floods condition in Kerala is very critical. According to a recent report more than 150 people have lost their lives. Districts like Aluva, Pathanamthitta and Muvatthupuzha are completely submerged in water while most others are under red alert.
Schools, colleges and commercial entities are shut. There is no transport as water has gushed into houses, airports, bus and railway stations, also landslides have destroyed roads. Rains are continuing to pour and clearly the state of Kerala and its people are in great danger.
Realising the necessity for help, which is highly required at the moment, many NGOs and organisations are contributing immensely towards the flood affected people of Kerala. Here are 6 ways as to how you can also contribute your bit with the others.
Government of Kerala has set up an online platform for people to directly donate funds for rebuilding the lives of flood affected people from Kerala. Money can also be sent through DDs, Cheques or internet banking.

I wanted to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting 'win' moments.
My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
Uorfi Javed has been making waves through social media, and is often the target of trolls. So who and what exactly is this intriguing young woman?
Uorfi Javed (no relation to Javed Akhtar) is a name that crops up in my news feeds every now and again. It is usually because she got trolled for being in some or other ‘daring’ outfit and then posting those images on social media. If I were asked, I would not be able to name a single other reason why she is famous. I am told that she is an actor but I would have no frankly no clue about her body of work (pun wholly unintended).
So is Urfi Javed (or Uorfi Javed as she prefers) famous only for being famous? How does she impact the cause of feminism by permitting herself to be objectified, trolled, reviled?
