Babu believes that everyone should do as much he/ she can in this fight for survival. He does not care about the profit or the loss.
Vadakara: Babu, who meets his livelihood by selling fish every day, went out of work for one and half months. And finally when he started going back to work, he took a decision to distribute fish free of cost to the people on a day. When asked why he took such a decision, his answer was simple. “A lot of people stepped up to distribute rice and other essential items to poor people including me. I thought that I should also do my part.”
Babu believes that everyone should do as much he/ she can during this fight for survival. He does not care about the profit or loss. The other day, Babu gifted prawn fish to 110 families, to whom he sells fish regularly.
Babu goes to the fishing harbour near Chombala in Payyathur to collect fish. However, his livelihood was affected when the harbour was closed temporarily on March 22. His family includes his wife Janaki and two daughters, Arsha and Arya. They are all dependent on his income for survival.
However, his family did not know about his free service until someone shared this news on social media.
Babu bought 28.5 kg of prawns for Rs 27 per kg. He spent Rs 8000 in total for buying the fish. Babu said that he is relieved as he was able to contribute his part for a cause and not worried about anything else.
