Kairali of Baltimore would like to convey our deep shock and sad feelings in the recent tragedy of Puttingal Temple Fireworks accident that happened in Kerala on April 10, 2016. Our heartfelt condolences and sympathies to the families impacted by this tragedy.
We pray for the departed souls to rest in peace, for the injured people to recover fast, and for the bereaved families to muster up strength to overcome the grief and adversities caused by this tragic incident. We stand united with people of Kerala and people of India in this hour of deep sorrow. The Kairali of Baltimore also would wholeheartedly support any initiatives from government of Kerala and government of India in establishing safe practices to prevent similar incidents happening in future at religious places or public places.
The government administration and the common people should be united in efforts in establishing safe practices, for celebrations at religious places and public places. An underlying requirement for working toward establishing safe practices would be to ensure high level of awareness among common people and government officials. Therefore, as a first step, the Kairali of Baltimore requests the governments of India and Kerala, to take initiatives in generating the required awareness among common people of India which includes people of Kerala. Let us all be determined to establish a model of safe practices for celebrating events at religious places and public places, that we can pass on to current and future generations.
