How to survive the drought
- by admin
In the drought-stricken Kottayam region, a man is battling his last days to keep his family afloat.
Mishra and his family have been living in the hills of the village of Kottai since they moved to this area in the mid-1970s.
The family has no running water, no electricity, and even their cows have been unable to graze on the land.
In the last five months, Mishra has been unable, without food and water, to survive on the farm.
He has been confined to his house with no electricity for nearly five days.
His wife, Veda, is also in a critical condition.
“Our son is dying, but we have to live on this land, for the sake of our children and grandchildren,” Mishra told The Jerusalem Report.
“The only thing we can do is to give up and accept death.
It’s impossible for us to live in a state of denial.
We can’t even consider death.”
Mishras son is suffering from acute kidney failure.
He can’t eat and his kidneys are not functioning properly.
When his father was dying, Mishras mother would visit him, but he is not getting enough food.
The family has not given up hope.
They plan to open a dairy and dairy products shop in the nearby village of Poonch.
Mishra is also planning to set up a food store in the village.
“I have tried everything I can.
I have tried to educate my son about the benefits of food,” Mishras wife Veda told The Report.
While many other families have been forced to sell their land to developers, Misharas family has been able to maintain the farm and keep their children alive.
“We are hoping that our children will have a better life than we did,” he said.
The man’s eldest son, Kishore, is a medical student who is pursuing a masters degree.
“This is the last hope for my family,” he told The Israel Project.
“My family is on the edge.
They have no electricity or water.
We are struggling.
I cannot give up.”
Despite the dire situation, Mishrases son has no regrets.
“There is no way I am going to give my son up.
I will not leave him,” he vowed.
“When my son dies, I want to tell him that I have helped him a lot.
He is a great person, and I love him,” Mishrasing said.
