Ammini Against the Storm


As lightning and thunder tore the sky apart, Ammini knelt. She had decided to pray. As she started, she heard screaming.
Ammini’s serene life in the valleys of Wayanad is disrupted by the oncoming of a sudden seething storm. The profitable vanilla and pepper plantations, that had replaced the beautiful local paddy and coffee, are washed away in muddy deluge and destruction.
Could the immense personal and natural loss have been avoided? Will Ammini be able to rise above past mistakes and hail a more sustainable future? Read Vishaka George’s keen inspection of the climate crisis in Ammini Against the Storm through the lens of farming life in Kerala.

The StORI (Stories of Rural India) series uses real stories from rural India, of disenfranchised people and communities, and the unique challenges they overcome every day, be it in infrastructure, health care, disability, or job security. They are stories of triumph – of children who participate cheerfully in civic issues, athletes who power past their disabilities, citizens who demand their right to be heard – and an attempt to give these voices a platform, as well as address the serious dearth of children’s books that are set in non-urban locations.
