For the world, the worst is over in god’s own country, but not for Sheena Chacko. This is the first time she is returning home after her small house was flooded on August 15, forcing her to flee. A life built over 30 years, was lost in a day. For Sheena and lakhs like her across Kerala, the next few months will be about cleaning, scrubbing, picking up pieces and moving ahead. The sludge and misery the floods have left behind are obstinate enemies. Then there is Shiju, who with a wiper in hand, smiles through all of it. He is one of the 600 fisherman who came to Kerala's rescue when the state was drowning. He says, “Our elders taught us nothing is more important than saving lives, so that is what I did. My Aadhar and ration cards are gone, my Chinese fishing net is gone too. But god will help.”
