Chala is a small town in Kannur District of Kerala. In the recent past it bore witness to a catastrophic accident involving an LPG Gas Tanker Explosion.

When disasters strike it is not uncommon for governments to make promises. But it is very common that these promises go unfulfilled. That is where Amma, makes the difference. “For the first time, we are being offered help, instead of having to ask for it. The response from the Math was quick, direct and with out any kind of bureaucratic delay. The victims can receive the aid directly.” Said Mr. Abdul Sathar. On exactly one month from the disaster, being with Amma and being a part of the celebration of love was the best thing that these residents could ask for.

Rethi, a relative, was speechless as to how she felt being here in Amritapuri on this day. “There is no need for me to say anything more about Amma, the whole world knows and loves her. Even though I am sad, I am glad that I had the chance to see Amma and feel her kindness”. According to Preetha, Amma’s divine touch heals both body and mind, and all she wants and wishes is to see Amma, always. Some relatives however were unable to communicate. But a part of them was healing slowly, encouraged by the divine mother’s love and the promise that their prayers will always be heard.

Even though their sorrow still lingers in their eyes, it is being overcome by a strong belief of hope and faith that they have in our beloved Amma.
