KOZHIKODE: Linu, who died while taking part in the rescue operations during the ongoing flood, has found admirers from several parts of the state. Many have come up acknowledging Linu's bravery and offering support to his family. Actor Mohanlal too, on behalf of his Viswasanthi Foundation, came up and announced that his foundation will construct a house for Linu.
The actor also wrote an emotional letter to Linu's mother. The letter says, 'Dear mother, I know that you have lost your dear son in the flood. However, I firmly believe that Linu has indeed started his journey into the minds of all Keralites. To live for someone, one needs a large heart and to die for someone one needs both a large heart and immense bravery. By sacrificing his own life for others, Linu has proved that he was both brave and large-hearted. He has left us all by saving a society that includes you and me. Though I don't have enough words to console you, I would like you to consider my words as love from another son for giving birth to a brave soul.'
The representatives from the foundation visited Linu's family and consoled them. The family was also handed over an amount of Rs 1,00,000 as immediate assistance.
