Why not ask every Indian citizen to contribute?The Kerala rains are so huge and have completely washed away many houses. Thousands have literally lost everything. Why not more people chip in? For example, if all the IT people donate just one month's salary and all Government Staff all over India also donate just one day's salary, the poor people, who have been badly affected, can restart their lives.
It is gratifying to note that some donations are pouring in from the NRIs. But this is just not enough. After the rains stop, the poor should not be left in the lurch. Common people can donate whatever they can to the Government fund.
It is now the time to raise as a Nation. Let the voluntary help pour in from all over the world. The NRIs should not be restricted to Kerala people. Every NRI has a duty to perform. Let us all do it. On my part, I have already made a donation to the Government fund.
