“We don’t need any money for the work we have done. How can we take a penny from the government, when so much money is needed to reconstruct the state?” asks Seldan, a fisherman who helped the rescue operations in Changanassery, Kottayam.“Even if we do get money, I will put it back in the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund,” he adds.

Seldan and his team didn’t have to think twice when they got a call from a stranger asking to help in the rescue operations. “It was pouring incessantly, there was water gushing everywhere, the undercurrent was very strong. We were not sure we would be safe. But who thinks of their own safety at a time like that? We braved the rains and just thought about rescuing people.”
However, Seldan has not been able to go back to work since he returned home. He has sprained his back. “It was an accident during the rescue operations”, said Freddie who alone has rescued about 50 to 60 people and made food available to more than 2000 others
