His post said
Love a lot-- K K Shylaja Teacher

Teacher Amma

Should applaud her ability to understand and implement things before we think.

As per the special directive of the minister, we shifted Rithul and Sidharth, who was having fever to the isolation ward of Kozhikode Medical College. We didn’t know what to do in the beginning. They were fine the next morning. But the dailies and social media carried the news that they, sons of Lini are down with Nipah. In that situation, we requested the hospital to discharge them. I won’t forget the things the minister told me that day.

Teacher’s words “Your sons are okay now. They are happily playing around here. Can discharge them only after four days of observation. They are safe here.’

The minister’s love, words and care are our strength. That mother’s love is still with us today, he wrote.
