Kerala, India (CNN)Idicula Gevarghese, forced to abandon his home in the town of Venmoney in the southern Indian state of Kerala last week, returned with his family on Monday to the ruins of their lives.
Three of them — himself, his wife and their granddaughter — came back to the swamped house armed with disinfectant, and began the overwhelming task of clearing out five days of muck and water.
They had left in a hurry the previous week, anxious about getting stranded in the floodwaters that swept through the villages and towns of southern Kerala just a day later.
